I hope that you have a good time!
When are you going? Is she going as a neuter or un-neuter?
I dont think it is that stressful for cats, alot of them dont even care, and if they were upset you dont take them again! They dont do much at gccf shows apart from sleep and sit there, tica is a bit more active with taking them to the judging ring, but you have to make sure that you are breeding the correct standard of cats, aswell as studying the points then its kinda like asking them to confirm what you are doing is correct. Otherwise all the same breeds would / could look different if no one knew what the standards were. And thats kinda the point og a pedigree cat, to look the same and try to get the same on each generation temp & looks wise.
I guess you must hate dog shows then aswell? Bunny shows?
Also I never get why people put 'in my opinion' after they write a post as surely everything you write is your opinion hence writing it?
Cant agree more with everyone elses posts
