Cat Show Capers

Reader, just a few pictures from the annual Supreme Cat show here in Birmingham, England. The one-day Supreme Cat Show (aka The Governing Council of the Cat Fancy’s ‘Supreme Championship Cat Show’ … phew) is one of the largest cat fancy competitions in Europe with over a thousand cats being exhibited. Best in breed awards up for grabs include: Persian, Semi-Longhair, British, Foreign, Burmese, Oriental and Siamese. All these posh moggies have to endure hours in cages for their art and beauty. But they do have all mod cons in there, including plumped cushions, fireplaces and (in one case) tins of cider…. Norman tells me that’s all very well but how the heck do they cope with the boredom of being stuck in a cage for most of the day!
