Queensland’s top cat event to showcase ‘purriceless’ felines

If you love cats or simply enjoy watching cat videos online (admit it, you do), then the Australian National Cats Inc Queensland Regional Multi Ring Show is the place to be on November 29th! The 5th annual ‘Christmas in Queensland’ cat show attracts breeders and die-hard cat enthusiasts from across the State, all vying for the Supreme Cat in Show title. Some of the cats will then be in the running to win Australian Cat of the Year’ in January. This event showcases some of the country’s finest – or most adored - felines, from the popular Rag Doll and Burmese to rare breeds, such as the Sphynx, Cinnamon Burmese and Abyssinian, according to ANCATS President Brian Edwards. “We invite people of all ages to attend the show not just to watch the judging, but also to mingle with breeders and learn about responsible cat ownership,” he says. “ANCATS members are devoted to the welfare and responsible ownership of cats, and encourage the public to microchip, register and desex their cats.” If you’re thinking of acquiring a cat, the Queensland Regional show is the PURRfect place to learn about cat breeds with their various hair lengths and different characters, and make an informed decision, he adds. For the first time this year, the public will also have the opportunity to vote for the ‘People’s Cat’ and be in the drawn to win one of three $50 Cat Lovers’ hampers! “With ANCAT, every cat is a winner. Let’s see who wins (Supreme) this year by a whisker!” says Mr Edwards. To discover more, visit or phone 1300 738 228.... read more
