Organizers have also planned educational talks for attendees. Subjects include what breed work best for which families, feline history, grooming needs, cat health and showing cats. Shopping is available at the “Meow Mall,” which offers cat trees, cat beds, cat jewelry, artwork, cat food and more.
The cat agility trials will show competing cats with the best speed and cats who best complete hurdles courses, hoop runs and tunnel runs.
