Don't forget to set your calendars for September 10th, 2005 for Meows and Minis Live IV! Set in Glen Ellyn, IL, MAML is a NAMHSA qualifier/all mini live show with SEVEN big divisions and 145 classes (OF Plastic Halter, OF China Halter, Custom Glaze China. Custom Halter, Resin Halter, OF Performance, Custom/Resin Performance) and LOTS of fun! We also have a RESS class this year, judged by the very talented DeeAnn Kjelshus! Judges include the very capable Mary Vinyard, Alicia Strayer-Mangan, Kim Haymond, and Elizabeth LaRose! ALL proceeds from the raffle and auction will benefit Cat Guardians, a local no-kill, cageless, non-for-profit cat shelter. Last year, we raised $1700 for the shelter! We will have members from the shelter there that day with information about the cats and their home. You can read more about Cat Guardians at their website at http://catguardians.hypermart.net/
