GALLERY: It’s the cat’s whiskers: Cat show attracts more than 30 entrants
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.
The best in show award for a non-pedigree cat was won by Tiger, a tabby owned by Sally Favell of Ely. The pedigree winner was Minty, a tabby spotted belonging to Sue Willows of Newmarket.
Held at Little Downham village hall on Saturday, this was the 18th annual pet cat show to be organised by the charity.
Show manager and branch co-ordinator Linda Hutchinson said: “This year has been particularly difficult, as there are more and more cats needing homes, but fewer people coming forward to offer homes. This puts pressure on our funds, all proceeds from this year’s show will go to help local cats and their owners.
“Last year, Ely and District Cats Protection found new homes for more than 230 cats and kittens, we have also been running an extensive local neutering campaign to help reduce the number of unwanted kittens being born.
“We would like to thank everyone who has helped with the show, judges, stewards, and all helpers, and everyone who sponsored a class or donated prizes.”
