Cats and kittens of all breeds, well-known and less-known will strut their stuff at this annual beauty contest, one of the top shows in the USA. Expect to see the elegant Persians, the exotic Bengals, the sophisticated Siamese, and many, many others as well as charming domestic household pets. The competition is intense but entertaining and fun. When not dashing off to a judging ring, owners will be pleased to answer questions about their cats, and McPride Lucille Ball of Jaspurrcats will be on hand to greet visitors. Lucille, a Maine Coon cat, is the current number 9 cat in the country. Local rescue groups will be at the show with cats and kittens ready for their new homes. Vendors bringing cat-related merchandise of all kinds, from cat trees and other furniture, giftware, fine jewelry, and of course, cat toys not available in retail stores, will be ready for visitors who want to shop. A giant 2-day raffle will give visitors and exhibitors opportunity to win gift cards and baskets. A special presentation of show cats 10 years and older will honor these "Golden Oldies." If you've never attended a cat show, Cotton States is the one to see!
