Male: Wow, these cats, if they are jumping better to be in the morning and how our kids really love to scream to wake me up when I am late for work. I do not know. You are so cute and my gosh, if she has like, you know when we live a plum in the counter too long and it shrivels out that is the same texture we have got going on with the sphinx cat here.

Male: Wow, I have never seen a cat so scary in my life.
Male: Well you know, if you are not used to a cat like this and you are waking up in the morning , my goodness, I would know what was jumping in bed or a thing.
Female: The unique thing about this plate is that the only Canadian native breed it is the international mutation from one of the domestic short hair. And most of us breed as we still out cost to ordinary street cats.
Male: And their eyes I have never seen eyes like that.
Female: Yes, they are supposed to be lemon-shaped.
Male: So the grooming and the care for a cat like this must involved a little bit of skin care because it must be quite sensitive?
Female: They are not same---as you can see there are a bit of heavily blemishes on they are merely. They are not as sensitive as what other people think they are. Most people overgrown them. They bathe them too much. I hardly ever wash my cats to keep themselves clean. So it is not much to do.

Male: The competition? To get aggressive, like figure skating and then fighting and---\
Female: No, I do not know---I very much like to win and when I get home I do not care anymore so it does not matter. It is really be the environment, meeting friends.
Male: And so, the winner, just to raved in, what do they get?
Female: Well, they get points. This is a kitten, so she won’t get points.
Male: They do not get pinned up like the cover of Vogue when they got first place but for pussy cats.
Female: Well, some of them do. Like the gothic cat she was on the IMS Calendar last year. Male: IMS calendar, so we have got the IMS calendar cat which is the equivalent of, could have been Maxim magazine but pinned up of the cat that is hairless, spread up, it is a proud ego on the cover of the pussy cat Maxim and I will go off and I am going to show you a few more cats that are rare here at the cat show.
