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.
