As every cat owner knows, nobody owns a cat. Ellen Perry Berkeley
What are your plans for the weekend? How about attending a cat show?
At a cat show each cat is placed in the ring, in an individual cage. The Judge takes the cats and kittens out, one at a time, and evaluated the head, coat, color, eyes and body of the cat, as measured against the standard for that breed. The cats then are awarded prizes based on the Judge’s decision. Each win adds points to the cats’ total for the year, and at the end of the year there are yearly award for the bests of each breed and category. Go see a cat show! It is an inexpensive way to have fun with the kids or friends, meet new and interesting people, and see cats you have never seen before!
