The Wonderful World of Cat Shows!
You've probably heard of the "Westminster Dog Show". But, have you ever heard of the "Supreme Cat Show"?
You should have - because it's considered to be the largest and most prestigious cat show in the world. It's held yearly in Birmingham, England.
Harrison Weir is credited as the creator of the first cat show. It was held in 1871 at the Crystal Palace in London. These two black/ white photos are from cat shows in 1903 - the larger one was taken at the Crystal Palace.
What is a cat show? It's an event where cats are judged against a standard for that particular breed. Cat shows vary greatly, in terms of judging and the actual show orchestration, depending on the country in which they're held. England, the U.S., Europe and Australia each have their own way of doing things.
Here's a little more info to whet your appetite for cat shows.
This is a neat video about a CFA cat show in San Diego (this one has passed but the next one is sure to be as much fun!). It's a great introduction to the world of cat shows.
