Vendors! Vendors! Vendors!
Yep, we have vendors galore … dozens and dozens of vendors selling whatever pet-related items you need from toys, supplies & food to clothes & jewelry. More than you ever imagined. Come prepared to shop. You can find a list of vendors, a map of the vendor area and their booth assignments on our Vendor page. Check it often as we will be adding vendors over the coming weeks.
The show will have 41 Breed Booths with information on the many, varied breeds of cats available today.
These include well-known breeds such as the Maine Coon Cat and the Siamese, as well as the lesser-known treasures such as the curly-coated Selkirk Rex and the curly-eared and darling Scottish Fold.
In addition to the top competitors from all over the world, there will be Pet Me cats representing each breed brought to the show hall just for you to touch and handle. Pet Me cats will not be competing, they will be in the hall just for you.
Many of CFA’s Ambassador Cats will be present throughout the hall as well.
Some breeders will have kittens or retired show cats available for purchase. In addition, there will be a rescue group with cats for adoption.
