Photo 1    Preparing for a show: Here is a pic of Lisa's male Persian cat, Mugsy "Meow My Mugsy Malone of Morgan.hill." The Persian is a long-haired breed of cat. Its breeder is Zayda Stephens. Lisa and Mugsy are from Wisconsin. Lisa grooms Mugsy with combs. "Mugsy is really cool, isn't he?" Lisa has three more Persian cats, but only Mugsy participates in cat shows. We asked Lisa, "How does a cat compete in the show?" She kindly answers, "This show separates out cats into one of two types: 'Long Hair' category (Persians, Maine Coons, and other long-haired cats) and 'Short Hair' category (Burmese, Sphynx, Egyptian Maus, and other short-haired cats). So, Mugsy will be judged in the 'Long Hair' category. "We had no clue on a cat show. We've never heard of 'Long Hair' and 'Short Hair', either." This pic was shot at the Saintly City Cat Show, the 2012 St. Paul Winter Carnival, Roy Wilkins Exhibition Hall, RiverCentre, St. Paul, MN, on January 29, 2012.

It looks like in a cat show there are two kinds of rings (
miniature shows), "Specialty" miniature shows (Cats are judged either in the ''Long Hair" category or in the "'Short Hair" category), which we just learned from Lisa, and "All Breed" miniature shows (all types of breeds of cats are judged).

"長毛" 部門 (Persians
, Maine Coons, and other long-haired cats) "短毛" 部門(Burmese, Sphynx, Egyptian Maus, and other short-haired cats). 言われて見ると、ペルシャ猫 "Mugsy" の毛長いですね。知識がなく、知りませんでした。キャットショーでは、上記しました"長毛" 部門  と "短毛" 部門にわかれて行う "Specialty" ショーに加えて、すべての種類の猫が評価される "All Breed" ショーがあるようです。
