It’s time to gather up the family and head out to the Everett Arena in Concord for the first cat show of the new CFA (Cat Fanciers’ Association) show season. Though this may be your first, it is our 40th, and it’s our fun and affordable event for you and your family. There is something for everyone!
One of our spectators’ favorite events is the “Pet Me Cats” area. These cats are available to be petted and enjoyed by spectators. They are there with their owners who are ready to field all your questions about kittens, cats, and shows. For those who like fast action, the agility ring is where cats willingly navigate various obstacles, such as jumps and tunnels, and weave through poles. You may want to borrow one of the agility cats and give it a try! We will have a certified CFA Ringmaster, who is also a club member, coming from New Jersey to assist at the show.
In addition to the actual judging, ongoing both days, there will be vendors with their wares for both the cats and their owners, free face painting, a big raffle, and food vendors. There will be stuff going on 10am-6pm and actual Cat Show times are Saturday 10:00 a.m. – 5:00- p.m.; Sunday: 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
A Breed Presentation, scheduled for Sunday at 1:00 p.m., will be an open forum where spectators will be encouraged to ask questions and learn about the personalities of the breeds presented. Unlike the judging rings where spectators watch, the breed presentation encourages people to ask the presenting judge whatever questions might be on their minds: about the breeds and their personalities; about the show itself; about anything cat-related.
On Saturday at 1:00 p.m., youngsters may choose to participate in the “Kitty/Kiddie Parade.” This will be like Halloween in May. Kids dress to look like their favorite cat and join us in a walk around the hall. Then, it will be on to a show ring where the kids will be able to tell the judge which cat he or she is. Remembrances for all.
Cost to get in is just $7 for adults and $5 for seniors/kids. You can also find a $1.00-off coupon per person on our website or FaceBook page.
