The annual Westminster Dog Show is a beloved event—it’s well-attended, and hundreds of thousands watch it on TV. But it’s nothing compared to the millions who watch, re-watch, comment on and make cat videos. The Idaho Cat Fanciers organization knows as well as anyone how popular cats are, and they’re proud to present Idacats 2014, a show featuring “championship, premiership, kittens, household pets and veterans.”
Unlike Westminster, your Fluffy, Whiskers, or Jasper T. Buckleman doesn’t need a lengthy, documented bloodline to be eligible for competition. Just make sure your kitty is at least four months old, is spayed or neutered, and has all of their proper vaccinations. And don’t stray from the Idaho Cat Fanciers’ guidelines (available at fliers.cfanorthwest.org/IdahoCats), or your cat may not qualify for a win.
You don’t have to enter a cat in the competitions or even adopt one to enjoy this event—all you need is a case of cat-scratch fever.
9 a.m. $6. Expo Idaho, 5610 Glenwood, 208-888-9934, fliers.cfanorthwest.org/IdahoCats.
