Tortoiseshell Persian named Adora Belle (aka Dora) 
The Cat Fanciers’ Association (CFA) will hold an all breed, specialty and household pet cat show April 9 & 10, 2011 at the Allen Park Community Center 15800 White Street  Allen Park, MI 48101 from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.


The show will feature two days of judged competition, as well as exhibitors and breeders providing information and offering close-up views of their cats.  Breeds represented will cover a wide variety, including Persians, Maine Coons, Orientals, Birmans, Tonkinese, Ragdolls, Siamese, Bombays and more.

The show is sponsored by the Just Cat-In-Around Cat Fanciers, a local non-profit cat club.   Internationally qualified CFA judges will evaluate the cats.

The show offers a variety of interests for all people, from cat enthusiasts to families with small children.  Judging will take place throughout the day, so you can be in a ring watching the judging, or walking the exhibit hall looking at the beautiful cats.  You can ask questions of breeders and exhibiters.  It really is great fun for everyone.

Founded in 1906, The Cat Fanciers’ Association has been devoted to the promotion and protection of all cats.  CFA as a whole, as well as individual member clubs and individuals associated with CFA, have together made outstanding contributions in feline health, feline health research, animal welfare and disaster relief over the years.

  3. Dat reminds mom to check and see when they will do a show in our area. She loves going to those and usually picks up some new toy to bring home for me as they have very unusual things there.

  25. Cool photos.
    BTW, our cat just discovered supermarket plastic bags. Nothing so funny as seeing a cat in a sack! But we have to keep them locked up as he will steal them off the table.

  27. What an interesting show. But we thinks Arty would steal the show if we sent her there.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Sounds like a good time, but I'd be afraid Mom would bring home a "Friend" for me!

    ReplyDelete
  29. @Nick, you made me laugh about the plastic. I may have to recycle a blog I did about that....I blogged about it last year. I think I may put that one on my schedule and re-run it! Be sure to catch it when I do!

    @Fin lol!! Watch out! She just might!

    @Amin, yes they are!

    @Artemisia I think Arty would steal the show too!

    @Slash & Bronzy, "dopey faces"...I love it!
