More than 30 fabulous felines strutted their stuff when they took part in this year’s charity pet cat show, organised by Ely and District Cats Protection.

Handsome males and pretty females fought it out to be declared top cat; and there were also fun classes to find cats with the best whiskers, the most beautiful eyes, and the cat that the judge would like to take home.

Mishka, a blue Rex, from Willingham, was declared best pedigree cat on the day along while Lexi, from Little Downham, a blue and white, was best non-pedigree.

Best kitten was Fem, also from Little Downham.

The show was held at Little Downham village hall on Saturday and was the 20th annual pet cat show to be organised by the charity. More than £1,200 was raised and eight cats were re-homed.

If you would like to re-home a cat, call show manager Linda Hutchinson on 01353 699430 or e-mail elycats@waitrose.com
