Cat shows are - um - interesting. It's an entirely different environment than dog shows, that's for sure! But it's still fun to see so many lovely animals all in one place at the same time. And, of course, the vendors and the shopping are half the reason to go!

I think a lot of people think there's only Westminster (and now the newer televised "National Dog Show" that they came up with for the Thanksgiving weekend). But as the below search tool will show, there is a LOT more!
