Cats and hot chocolate!!

October 12, 2008

This morning B and I got up early (which for both of us is a feat in and of itself) to go to the International Exhibition of Cats put on at the Russian Drama Theater (of all venues) by the Bishkek Cat-lovers Association. I'm not a big fan of cat shows and pedigreed cats in general (why pay money for a cat when so many are available for free?), but I'm not going to turn down the opportunity to enjoy some fabulous feline cuteness. There was a rather absurd number of Hairless Sphinxes and Scottish Folds at the show, considering that it was a fairly small event. I wonder why those two particular breeds are so popular? Anyway, here are my cat show photos - enjoy the cuteness!!

This one was supposed to pass herself off as a princess, but kept gnawing on her collar.

Somebody is not happy.

This one was my favorite. Most were in these over-decorated cages, but this one was just in a bare cage. Nonetheless, it was super-cute and full of personality.

I loved how this giant orange cat was cowering behind the little sphinx.

Allegedly this one’s a "Siberian" although I'd never heard of that as a breed of cat (other than the tiger) before!

After leaving the cat show, we met up with K at Cyclone, an Italian restaurant on Chuy near Beta Stores, which had the world's best hot chocolate. And they make a pretty damn tasty calzone as well.

Like a melted bar of fine dark chocolate.
