Birmingham Cat Shows 2015

It had been so long since I felt well enough to go to a cat show, that I felt like a total novice entering the Birmingham shows held at Zamora Temple the last week-end of January 2015. I had only one kitten to show as my two girls were not old enough, so I entered Sterling, the little boy who kept changing color. I finally decided he was a lavender but needed to see what the judges thought of his color. Sterling (Gaia Shooting Star) wasn't too thrilled on the first day to be there but he is a very laid back boy so I knew he would settle in. Each time he was called to a ring he relaxed a bit more and on the last day he knew what was expected of him. I learned that he is indeed a lavender, a very clear lavender that appears almost a silvery white. I received many compliments on Sterling and especially his coloring. The shows were fun for me as I met many  people who had lots of questions about the Devon Rex and several who were also looking to be owned by a Devon. Sterling took 10th best kitten in one of the last kitten finals of the day AND found his furever home as well.

At Last!

After dropping my camera while attempting to take pictures of Luna's latest litter, I have finally learned how to use my new camera.  I decided to buy a newer version of my former camera thinking I would not have any problems learning to use it. Boy was I mistaken! There is a huge difference between the two cameras. I never realized that in a seven year time span so much would change in the area of digital photography. Following is a smattering of my first serious attempts at photographing these latest little gremlins/elves.
