Maggie’s Bar & Cafe is adjacent to the hall for refreshments.

Meet Cat Breeds And Breeders

Maine Coons, Siamese, Persians and more! 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’re thinking about showing your cat you can see first-hand what’s involved.
