|Cat shows are open to the general public (In the afternoons) and are a great way of viewing many different breeds in the fur. Giving you the opportunity to meet new people, whilst coming away with a selection of cat food, litter and toys of all shape and sizes. A list of shows can be found on Http://Www.Gccfcats.Org/Clubsnshows.Html and you may find one in your local area.We have been fortunate to show our ragdolls (who have been bred by other breeders) for the past 6 years and have met some lovely people and learnt a great deal about the breed as a whole. Below are some photographs of our ragdolls and their show success to date. We look forward to one day taking our own Ardendolls Raggies out on the showbench.|
In 2012 we began to take some of our homegrown babies out on the showbench. We hope to add their successes below shortly
