Cats and Cat Shows Are More Popular Than Ever 

Cats have been on display to the public for thousands of years. Ancient Egyptians admired their grace and elegance, and that fascination has continued until today. Author P.G. Woodhouse said, “Cats as a class have never completely got over the snootiness caused by the face that in Ancient Egypt they were worshiped as gods.”

Cat clubs and cat fancier organizations hold local, state and national shows. If your feline is very outgoing, even tempered, and not upset or made nervous by unfamiliar places, loud noises, or strangers handling them, they will do well at a show.

Show cats need to be complacent and unfazed by the commotion, noise, and going on around them. If you are a cat lover of have been thinking about showing off your own feline friend, then you may be interested in attending a local cat show to see what it’s like.

Learn About Different Types & Breeds

A cat show is an exciting event for any animal enthusiast to attend – the energy and playfulness of the different breeds of cat shown make it lots of fun for people of all ages to enjoy. Most professional cat shows are sponsored by clubs affiliated with the Cat Fanciers Association (CFA), an international club that’s dedicated to the recognized breeds and well-being of cats.

At many cat shows, spectators will be allowed to walk around and visit with ­each of the breeds and category rings, and the judges are complete with their inspections. Breeders and handlers are willing to answer any questions from you and are also happy to talk with you about your own special breed cats, if you are a cat owner. They are also willing to talk about special concerns unique to each breed and give helpful advice to help you make the decision to purchase or adopt a kitten of a particular breed.

Ambassadors Are Helpful to Spectators

At the cat show, you will find multiple “Ambassadors” that are happy to walk around answering questions about the various types of cats. Many of the cat show ambassadors will be glad to take you on a walking tour of the entire arena and introduce you to the cat owners, breeders and handlers who are there prepping their felines for the show and attending to their animals.

Are You Ready To Get a Cat?

The Animal Human Connection is huge and a lifetime commitment to care and respect one another.  As Temple Grandin in “Animals Make Us Human” states that in order for an animal to have a good life we need to offer them five freedoms:

  • Freedom from hunger and thirst
  • Freedom from discomfort
  • Freedom from pain, injury, or disease
  • Freedom to express normal behavior
  • Freedom from fear and distress    and at we add an additional freedom. That is the freedom to have a good death when the time comes.
