All Breed and Household Pet Cat Show August 16- 17
The Mid-Pacific region All Breed and Household Pet Cat Show is August 16-17 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the air-conditioned McClellan Conference Center at 5411 Luce Avenue in McClellan Business Park.
Visitors can watch more than 30 breeds of cats and kittens being judged and talk to their owners in the aisles where the cats are benched. Owners are very proud of their cats, which are groomed to perfection, and happy to talk about what makes their breed special. The longhair breeds present will include Balinese, Birmans, Himalayans, Maine Coons, Ragdolls and Siberians. Shorthair cats include Abyssinian, American Shorthair, Bengal, Cornish Rex, Devon Rex, Exotic Shorthair, Sphynx and Tonkinese.
The Wine Country Cat Club is hosting the show. Members will wear "Ask Me" badges and answer any questions about the show and the cats. At a special Education ring, judging will be explained and breeds presented.
A Kitten Litter Match Competition mid-day Sunday will be a special treat. Litters of kittens, three to seven months old, will be evaluated for consistency in meeting the standard of their breed and then Best and Second Best Litter will be awarded.
Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for seniors and children and $15 for families. Proceeds from the raffle will go to Front Street Animal Shelter and Animal Outreach of the Mother Lode. Both shelters will have cats and kittens available for adoption.
Much like dog shows, the cats are judged on overall balance and proportion, with each compared to the standard for its breed. The standard specifies how the ideal cat of a breed would look and act. The more a competing cat meets the standard, the better it will score. Judges announce Best of Breed and then call back their Top Ten Cats in Show. With Household Pets, judges look for a pleasant personality and a beautiful, or especially cute, cat.
An adopted kitten from the Front Street Animal Shelter is currently the number one kitten in TICA's Mid-Pacific region and is in 6th place internationally. She was adopted at a cat show to which Animal Outreach of the Mother Lode and the City of Sacramento's Front Street Shelter had brought adoptable felines.
