One cat was not happy to be locked up!

A purr-fect event for the whole family, there was plenty of opportunities to pet and cuddle the cats. Visitors were also able to learn more about felines and what makes cats fantastic companions by observing one of the six judging rings.

Also at the show were more exotic breeds such as the Lykoi (better known as the Werewolf cat) and Marguerites (an African Sand Cat cross).

A spokesman for the event said: “The show has brought together not just the UK cat community, but cats from around the world. As well as welcoming TICAjudges from around Europe and across the pond.”
