Attention cat aficionados and kitty lovers! The Houston Cat Club Charity Cat Show returns January 8-9 to a new venue – the Hilton Houston North. 225 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 the visitors. The household pets are also popular and are judged on health and beauty. The purebred cats are judged on a written standard of conformation 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 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.
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 for adoption.
The Houston Cat Club has donated almost a million dollars over its 68 shows. All the donations come from visitor admission fees. Show hours at the Hilton Houston North (12400 Greenspoint Drive) are 10-5 Saturday, and 9-4 Sunday. Adult tickets are $10, military and seniors 65 and older are $8, and children ages 5-10 are $5. The show is free for children 4 and under.
