We no longer show. We found most Siberians do not enjoy it and that it is more of a beauty (wash and blow dry) and popularity / political contest. We advocate for a return to written and verbal feedback on each cat that supports a Breeder in making determination about conformation of the cats used in a breeding program. Additionally, we advocate for Cat Registries to require health testing of parent cats in order to register their offspring. We hope that some day cat shows and registries will focus on what is most important to most pet owners: health, genetic diversity, and great temperament (personality). Of course a breed should resemble its idealised description (conformation standard) to the degree it is recognisable as a member of that named cat breed.
