Hop on over to the Richland County Fairgrounds in Mansfield, April 5-6, to the Mid Ohio Cat Fanciers CFA All Breed Cat Show.

The show will be held from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. each day in Fairhaven Hall. Visitors coming to the show will have the opportunity to help Stop The Over Population of Pets (STOP) from Mansfield, Ohio who suffered a devastating fire at their location in January. STOP will have members in attendance at the show.

Over 200 cats and kittens from around the United States, Canada, and Europe are expected to be entered in the show including many of the top Cats in the World. While you may not see a cat from all 44 of the accepted breeds in the Cat Fanciers Association, you will see many including Persians, Maine Coons, Siamese and more.

Cats are judged on their breed specification in the Cat Fanciers Association Handbook that describes the animal from the tip of the nose to the tip of the tail including the type of body, the size of boning, ear placement and more.

Cats are judged against each other and are evaluated to see which best meets the specifications.

This year anyone with a pet cat or kitten is encouraged to enter their pet into the show! Household cats or kittens must be immunized, healthy, and not declawed.

For entry information please contact Bethany Clark at 614-557-9471.

Visitors coming to the show will have a chance to meet and greet Po, a Maine Coon kitten from Po’s Story on Facebook.

Visitors may want to take a chance on one of the many great raffle prizes being given away including a 24” LED HD television. Cat toys, supplies, and various other items for pets and humans will be available for sale. People looking for a new family pet may find the perfect cat or kitten for sale at the show.

Admission is $6.00 for adults and $4.00 for children. This year Mid Ohio Cat Fanciers is offering $1.00 off (1) one adult admission with the donation of an item urgently needed by STOP. These include scoopable cat litter, preferred bags of cat food such as Science Diet, Iams, Royal Canin, etc. for those kitties that cannot tolerate other brands, and large canned cat food of any brand.

Fairhaven Hall cafeteria, which is staffed by Volunteers, will be open to serve delicious, reasonably priced food.
