Cat Show and Cat Trees!

Mom went to the Feline Fanciers Cat Show in Fort Worth last weekend.  Of course, we let mom go only if she would buy us presents.
Here are some pictures of what she saw there.  

 It made mom sad to see all the cats in cages, and these were mostly all breeders, which we don't believe in since there are so many homeless cats in the world.

 There was an assortment of all kinds of cats, like this Bengal.

 There were a whole lot of CocoBeans too.  We think our CocoBean is just as beautiful as these show cats, don't you?

Mom was able to stock up on Peacock feathers, and everyone knows they are my favorite!!!

But most of all, the reason mom went to this Cat Show was to find Cat Tree Steve! 

Wowza Yowza, did mom ever find him!  Check out all these cat trees!
Mom was only going to buy one but she liked the good quality, so she bought us TWO!
Mom stuffed them into the back of her SUV, and was on her way back home, but......

......the cat trees were really heavy, and the weather was super hot, and mom's old SUV overheated!  Mom was stuck on the side of the highway with our TWO cat trees!
When the tow truck came, the driver asked what repair place mom wanted him to tow her to.  Mom said to tow it home, as she had to deliver these TWO cat trees home immediately!

Before mom could even move the cat trees from our entry way, we all hopped on!

We were so excited to try out every level of our new cat trees!

Finally we got off them for a minute so they could be moved to other rooms in the house.  
This is Chester demonstrating a close up view of the Super Scoop cat tree later on, in a most provocative position.  Chester has no shame.

Mom says cat tree quality in stores has been pretty poor lately, and she has been searching for a long time for some quality trees for us.  Mom and all of us highly recommend Cat Tree Steve's Cat Trees!

Please visit me and my animal friends at JB's BIG WORLD here and sign my GUESTBOOK here!

Yowza! Great trees and and great pose Chester!

Grrreta said...

Those must be some really great cat trees to have SIX kitties on them right away. They look very plush and comfy. Your mom definitely has her priorities straight going to such lengths to get high quality cat trees and making sure they got delivered to you kitties asap. Chester's napping position cracks us up.

OKcats said...

We know some bloggers are breeders and others like to buy from breeders so we don't say anything, but we feel the same way your mom does about it. Anyway... those cat trees are PAWSOME! WOW! But your poor mom, getting stranded. :( Our mom has had that happen before, and she says it's terribly frustrating. We're glad you got toys!!!!! Hey... we just remembered... our mom's brother lives in Dallas - your mom should have called him ! We would have MADE him go get your mom and your trees! haha

Lorenza said...

Your cat trees are pawesome!
I can see you all love them!
Sure it was not funny for your mom to be there on the side of the highway!
Take care
Kisses and hugs

Angel and Kirby said...

THose are great trees! Mom has been looking for a new one for us! WE will have her check it out!

Prints the Cat said...

Oh boy! New peacock feathers and a new cat tree -- well, not just one, but TWO! You sure have your Mom trained very well to understand the importance of timely delivery of quality (and quantity) cat trees. Of course, cat decor is very important, too. My Mom asked if she bought some cat trees from Steve, would it come with 6 adorable cats, like yours does? So glad your Mom got a photo of all 6 of you inspecting the cat trees as soon as they entered the foyer. You all are so cute!

MoMo said...

Great post!!! Those cat trees are pawsome. No wonder you all got onto them the moment they arrived. one way of getting all the kitties in one photo.

Hope the car is OK.

Feel so sad for those kitties that have to be in a cage. Why breed when there are so many kitties waiting for forever homes?

Coco Bean is every bit as beautiful as the show kitties.

Huffle Mawson said...

Wow, those are some impressive cat trees. You have your mum well trained.

Pedro said...

There are some very jealous cats in my dawg house! Mom says if she bought a cat tree I'd probably pee on it. Um. True.


Katnip Lounge said...

Three Cheers for your Mom and her perseverance through EVERYTHING to get your TWO cat trees home to you PRONTO!

Chester, we think your shamelessness is endearing. And funny!

Fin said...

Gotta air out the floof.

Look like great trees!

Tillie and Georgia said...

First, we also think CocoBean is just as pretty and more than the showcats!!!!!!!!! Those trees are pawsome! We wants one!! heehee
Third, we purr your car can be fixed :)
Fourth,Chester,you are SO silly :)

Purrs Tillie and Georgia

Momo and Pinot said...

That Cat Trees are super cool!!! Wow!

Hansel said...

Glad your mom made it home ok- and we LOVE your trees! We have that one small tree and honestly, we were sad about the quality of it as well. it was very easy for hansel to rip off most of the fleece and eat through it anyway. We have yet to replace the taller platform. It's just really sad.

Jacqueline said...

Awesome cat trees and adorable photos of you beautiful kitties; LOVED Chester's silly photo=our Mommy would adore kissing that sweet floofy tummy!!...Have a fun week ahead, precious friends and we hope you all will be able to stop by for Sukki's Gotcha Day on Tuesday...smoochies...Calle, Halle, Sukki

Daisy said...

You got a good mom to bring you home TWO cat trees!

Jemma the Chihuahua said...

Oh wow, how come my human has never brought home TWO cat trees all at once for me? Lucky kitties!


Jan's Funny Farm said...

That's a funny story, but only for the readers, not for your mom. What a day for the vehicle to break down. Those do look like good trees. Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy!

We have the same opinion of you about cats breeders and the cats without home.

These trees look of great quality, here in Spain it is very difficult to find them or they are very expensive.

You are so lucky!

Those are very spiffy cat trees!! Your Mom is way cool to bring home such great presents!
