Meet Many Different Cat Breeds

Maine Coons, Siamese and Persians!  You can see these and other breeds on the afternoon of the show.  Many breeders/owners are available in the show hall to talk about their cats.  It’s a good opportunity to find out more about the various breeds, particularly if you are thinking of buying a pedigree kitten in the future.  Plus, if you thinking about showing your cat you can see first-hand what’s involved.
