Join the Houston Cat Club on January 13-14 for their 71st Charity Cat Show at the Hilton Houston North. Over 200 purebred cats and kittens from around the country, plus beautiful household pets, will compete for awards given by ten expert judges from the Cat Fanciers’ Association, the world’s largest registry.  

Some of the felines at the Houston show are there just to be adored…and petted.  These special Pet-Me cats are always a hit with visitors.  Household pets are also popular and are judged on health and beauty.  The fabulous purebred cats are judged on a written standard of confirmation for their breed.  Up to forty-two breeds may be represented at the show.

In addition to the judging there will be cat costume contests on both days, Meet the Breeds on both days, and a Meow Mall full of the best variety of toys, treats, and gifts for cats and those who love them available anywhere.   Dr . Kira Bourne, DVM, will discuss cancer in felines – symptoms, treatments, and contributing foods.

The Houston Cat Club Charity Cat Show is a 501(c)3 all-volunteer organization that supports animal welfare groups in Houston and surrounding areas.  In addition, animal shelters receive free space at the show to present their beautiful cats and kittens for adoption.

The Houston Cat Club has donated almost a million dollars over its 70 shows.  All the donations come from visitor admission fees.  If you can’t attend the show, please consider making a tax-deductible donation to support the Houston Cat Club’s charitable work at
