The Annual Mid Ohio Cat Fancier's Cat Show premiered again this weekend and brought in a bit more money for Mansfield's local economy.

"Most of our exhibitors don't live in this area, so they visit our hotels, our local restaurants, they do shopping locally," notes Nanette Schindler, the show's co-manager. "That brings money into this economy that [Mansfield businesses] might not otherwise get."

The show featured competitions between cats, and drew in competitors from as far away as Florida and farther. Schindler says her mission this year was to attract as many competitors as possible, a goal that proved successful in just about every regard.

"The crowd's starting to come in, they're enjoying themselves, and that's what really matters."
