Bintang has been known to be easily moody, hence, from the very beginning we had no intention of getting her to participate in a cat show. In contrast with Bulan, in which, he's usually cheerful and playful, he's always in the mood for playing, invite him to play and he'll join you. But Bintang, if she's not the mood, and you invite her to play, she'll move away from you, and if she thinks you're too much, she'll go to a corner, and sit facing the corner. and yes, she's a cat.
Anyhow, since we were going to attend the show, it wouldn't hurt to just tag a cat along, and put her in a cage, while we roam around looking at the other cats right? ya, it's that simple.
So we arrived early morning at SACC Mall, Shah Alam, on the 21st December 2008 registered in, checked by a vet, and put her in a cage. So that was it. I'd have to say, there's the feeling of inferiority for bringing a typical 'kucing kampung'. But we were there, and whatever it is, it won't hurt anyhow. Yes, as predicted, Bintang was moody. She sat at a corner and was not entertaining our play invites.
Being it a 1st time, we had difficulties leaving her alone in the cage, so we ended up taking turns accompanying her. Yes, I know she's just a typical cat which can be found on the streets or alleys, but the love that we have for her is definitely no typical. It's her 1st time being in such an alienated situation, and it's our first time putting her in such a condition. She's a living creature with awareness, and I didn't want her to feel alone, in danger, neglected or whatsoever, thus, we took turns sitting by her cage, so she was not left on her own for too long.
Well, to cut the story short, Bintang did well. To our surprise, she placed 1st in the Non Pedigree Kitten K6 Shorthair Category. And on top of that, Bintang was also chosen as Best Non Pedigree Shorthair. What a delight!
