The CFA International Cat Show is the largest international pedigreed cat show in the Western Hemisphere, showcasing the world's finest pedigreed felines.TM   Held annually in November the weekend before Thanksgiving , the show frequently moves to different locations around the United States. This year it is in Atlanta, Georgia, hence the name Catlanta.  Competition is keen as it brings together 900 of the finest pedigreed cats from the United States, Canada, Asia, Europe, and South America to compete for prestigious titles and Feline Agility.  

The Georgia International Convention Center is a fantastic venue.  It is less than 3 years old.  We will be the first animal exhibition in the building.  It is all on one level.  Easy to access.  Great parking.  It is in just about the easiest location to find. It is 5 minutes from the airport, 5 minutes from I-85, 5 minutes from a brand new shopping mall. 

The show is a three-day event with twelve specialty judging rings. The judges are selected by ballots from all CFA clubs worldwide.  Each of the judges handles either all of the Championship entries, or all of the Kitten and Premiership entries over the three days of the show. The highlight of the weekend is on Sunday afternoon -- a special presentation of the Best of each breed or division in all three categories.

Over 55 vendors will be enough to tempt your wallet with their displays of cat paraphernalia, from toys to magazines to art to jewelry to scratching posts. Remember, the Holidays are right around the corner.  There is no better place to find gifts for your pets and pet people.

Don't miss the Feline Agility competitions.  These events accent the grace, athleticism, and curiosity that make cats so fascinating!  Imagine cats and kittens running through tunnels, leaping hurdles, dancing around weave poles, and scampering over ramps - all with the proud encouragement of their exhibitors. Toys can be used as chase targets to help the cats stay on course; treats help hold attention and reward a course well-run. The obstacles are adjusted for size and height of competitors.

Proceeds from the CFA International Cat Show have benefited The Winn Feline Foundation, a non-profit organization which is dedicated to providing funding for cat health studies. Since it's founding in 1968, the foundation has raised more than $2 million, with the TOTAL amount going to feline health studies.
