"Centennial Cats" is the theme for the 22nd annual Promontory Point Cat Club show, scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, March 2-3, in the Utah State Fairpark Grand building.
Hours for the show are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days. Admission is $2 for adults, $1 for children or $5 for a family pass.Cat fanciers from throughout the country will be exhibiting their felines and competing in the show. As many as 30 different breeds of CFA-registered cats will be represented, according to Daniel L. Newland, president of the club.
In addition, there is a category for the exhibition and competition of household pets.
Eight international judges will supervise the two-day competition. Visitors are welcome to watch the judging and hear the judges comment on the care and conditioning of the participating animals. Judges frequently take the time to explain what they are looking for in a particular breed.
Each judge will select the best cats in kitten, premiership (cats that are spayed or neutered), championship and household pet divisions.
Contenders with CFA-registered cats will be competing for national and regional points.
In addition to the cats, several vendors of related supplies, including pet food, toys and other items of interest to cat lovers, will also have booths on the premises.
All children under 12 attending the show must be accompanied by an adult.
