Cat Shows 101: What You Need to Know

What are cat shows?

Cat shows are exhibitions where cats are judged by breed standards, health condition, and beauty. As you might know if you’re a cat owner or have been in the past, cats have a lot more personality, grace, and agility than they’re given credit for in the media. Cat shows are every bit as interesting and exciting as dog shows are – and they’re a great way to connect with other owners, learn more about our feline companions, and take home a prize or two.

Can anyone join a cat show?

YES! Both Pedigreed Cats and Household Pets can join in the Cat Show. We want to see your feline friend at one of our shows!

No special skills/tricks required, all you need is to bring your pet bird (can be a canary, budgie, love bird, any species of parrot etc.) and be willing to share what it means to be a responsible bird owner with the audience. Birds can be in small cages, in a carrier, or body harness safely – whatever they are comfortable with – while you parade across the stage while the show MC describes your bird. You are not obligated to speak on stage, but we, and the audience would love to hear your perspectives on bird ownership. All ages welcome. Registration is FREE and includes 2 adult admission passes per registrant per day of participation. Remember, for this event to be a success we need your participation!
