On the Road
Exhibiting cats can require travel, especially if you live in an area that doesn't have many cat shows. Don't let this discourage you! Yes, you may find that you have to drive 5+ hours to a show. You may also discover that you enjoy these "road trips." It's also possible that there may be other exhibitors near you or en route that you can meet up with and share the ride (and expenses). That is also a fun way to share an adventure, and learn a bit more about your fellow exhibitors.
You will soon discover that cat fanciers' second favorite topic of conversation is travel (the first being our cats, of course!). The best way to get to the show hall, good hotels in the area, and great restaurants too. This travel and community is part of what makes exhibiting pedigreed cats such a fulfilling hobby!
