The British Are Coming! …
The British are coming! … and the Americans, the Russians, the Siberians, and the French, also known as the Chartreux. Time to gather up the family and head to the Everett Arena in Concord for the first cat show of the new season. This is our annual fun, affordable, family affair. We hope to have something for everyone!
For those who like fast action, the agility ring is the place to be. Come and watch cats who, with the encouragement of their owners, willingly navigate various obstacles, such as jumps and tunnels, and weave through poles. It sounds implausible, but with the right training, cats can do this! You may want to borrow one of the agility cats and give it a try! We will have a certified CFA Ringmaster, who is also a club member, coming from New Jersey to assist at the show.
The club is continuing with the favorite “Pet Me Cats” area. There are NO “Do Not Touch:” signs on these cages. People are encouraged to come and pet, hold and enjoy these well-socialized cats. Some are household pets who have retired from the show circuit; others are retired pedigreed cats who also enjoy being back in the show hall. Please come and enjoy them!
In addition to the actual judging, there will be vendors, a Kids’ Table, free Face Painting, a raffle, and a chance to vote for your favorite exhibit to win the Spectators’ Choice special rosette. On Saturday at 1:30 p.m., there will be an Ice Cream Social for all – until the ice cream runs out!
A Breed Presentation, scheduled for Sunday at 12:00 noon, will be an open forum where spectators are encouraged to ask questions and learn about the personalities of the breeds presented. Unlike the judging rings where spectators watch, the breed presentation encourages people to ask the judge whatever questions might be on their minds: about the breeds and their personalities; about the show itself; about anything cat-related.
Before the Breed Presentation, youngsters may choose to participate in the Stuffed Animal Contest. This will be held at 11:30 a.m. on Sunday in one of the judging rings. Though kids are encouraged to bring their own stuffed animals, there will be various stuffed animals for kids to chose from “to show.” The judge will evaluate the toy animal and engage the child in asking why this one is his/her favorite. Prizes will be given to those who participate. If coming with a child who would like to participate, let the person at the entrance know this when you check in.
There will be a concession stand for snacks and lunch as well as the Paws Awhile Café where your lunch or snack can be eaten before returning to the show.
As Seacoast has done in the past, we are offering $1.00 off admission if you bring either cat food or a food donation for the NH Food Bank. You can also find a $1.00-off coupon on our website. There is just one discount per person.
