Triple Crown Cat Fanciers - July 8 & 9, 2017, in Lexington, Kentucky.

We had the greatest time at this show! We brought Mikey out for his very first show at four months of age. I was so very proud of him despite the fact he hasn't quite grown in to his ears yet. So... we had Chanan take his first professional pictures. At this show, CFA Judge Anne Mathis honored Mikey with 2nd Best of Breed (Calico and Bi-color class) against five other kittens (including Faith and Daisy).
