Saintly City Cat Club Annual Championship Cat Show Returns to Roy Wilkins Exhibition Hall Jan. 25-26
More than 200 cats from the United States and Canada will compete for the title of Best Cat at the Saintly City Cat Club's 44th Annual Championship and Household Pet Cat Show, Jan. 25-26.
As many as 26 different breeds will be judged in five classes: Kittens, Championship, Premiership, Veterans, and Household pets. Competitors will include the ever popular breeds such as the Maine Coon and Persians, as well as many lesser known breeds such as the Korat, Cornish Rex, and Sphynx (hairless cat).
A "King" and "Queen" cat will be caped and crowned from the Household pet cat division on Sunday afternoon by a special guest.
Each feline finalist will receive a rosette from the Saintly City Cat Club, Inc. In addition, finalists will receive winner points from the Cat Fanciers' Association (CFA), America's largest organization of cat owners and breeders. Points are tallied for regional and national awards at the close of the CFA show season next April.
Saintly City Cat Club, Inc. is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the health and welfare of all felines and to the education of the public on felines. Established in 1974, it is a member club of the Cat Fanciers' Association (CFA).
