You also need to check with the breeder if your new kitty will be show quality.

Hope that helps

Hiya I know very little (well nothing) about showing however there are some very knowledgable members on here, Kay, Fran, Charliebubs, Soupie, Sarahd to name a few..............all I am certain would be able to advise you generaly I am certain. Why not visit a few shows and have a look round aclimatise yourself so to speak. And maybe arrange to meet breeders there and see what what "breeders" cats you like...and maybe more important those you do not like and go from there. Best of luck I know the Supreme cat show is soon.
