OTHER INFO

If you're in the area, we'd like to invite you to stop by our show for an hour or two. There's plenty to see:

  • You can participate in the feline reproduction symposium (Friday only). Pre-registration required (link coming soon).
  • You can watch the cats being judged. Judging goes on continuously all day. There are several judges per day. Many of the judges talk to the crowd while they're judging -- they may tell you about the breed of cat they're currently judging, comment on the strong points of a particular cat, or even explain why they scored one cat higher than another.
  • You can watch the judges present awards to the top 10 cats in each class. The judge presents each winning cat to the audience and awards it a beautiful rosette.
  • You can watch the cats jump and weave their way through the cat agility course. Ringmaster Vickie Shields will be sure to delight you with her words of wisdom about the health benefits of cat agility.
  • You can wander among the exhibitors' area and view the cats when they aren't being judged. Often, the cats' owners are nearby and are happy to chat with you about their cats.
  • You can browse our vendor area. Our many vendors carry a broad range of wares: cat toys, scratching posts, beds, grooming supplies, cat food, jewelry and artwork are just a few of the items you'll find.
  • You can visit the cat rescue organizations and see the cats they have brought for adoption. (We donate vendor space to local feline rescue organizations. Each year, many beautiful but homeless cats and kittens find permanent homes at our show.)

What breeds will be at this show?

TICA (The International Cat Association) recognizes over 50 cat breeds for championship competition and exhibition. Most, but not all, of these breeds will be represented at this show.

WHAT IS THE judging schedule?

Please click here for the overall event schedule.

On Friday from 4 PM to 8 PM, you'll be able to see the five "forest cat" breeds compete for honors: Maine Coon Cats, Norwegian Forest Cats, Siberians, Kurilian Bobtails, and Pixiebobs.

Allbreed judging (of all championship breeds and household pets) takes place from 9 AM to 5 PM on both Saturday and Sunday. There is no specific time schedule for individual breeds to be judged during that time; competitions for all classes go on throughout the day, all weekend long. So, no matter what time you come, you should be able to see a broad variety of different breeds being judged. We have six judging rings which operate independently & simultaneously; each ring gets the various classes in a different order (to avoid conflicts between rings). Each cat will be judged by all six judges during the course of the day. Also, throughout the day, you can see all the cats who aren't currently being judged as they relax with their owners, waiting for their next turn in the judging ring.
