But your cat doesn’t have to a Persian from the Shah’s court, or the Pharaoh’s Egyptian Mau to enter this show! In the Household Pet Class, any non-pedigreed cat that has been spayed or neutered is eligible.

Cat Judging

Ten (10) of CFA’s top National and International judges will be flown in from around the country to judge this event, and exhibitors from coast to coast are expected to attend and compete with their finest. Judging in ten different rings will assure no lulls for guests and entries.

Swap Meet-Like Atmosphere

The show hall will also provide a swap meet atmosphere for purchasing cat related items offered by specialty merchandisers situated throughout the show hall. There will be hundreds of items for cat lovers, ranging from gift novelties such as cat decorated t-shirts, personalized food and water bowls and exquisite hand-crafted cat theme jewelry.

Cat Adoption

This year’s feline show will include a special promotion to find homes for San Diego’s shelter cats. The Humane Society, Friends of Cats, the Helen Woodward Center and the Feral Cat Coalition to name but a few, have participated in our previous shows, many with adoptable shelter cats.
