The Cat Fancier’s Association is hosting an all-cat breed show on Feb. 1.

Yes, a cat show.

Attendees can watch more than 150 pedigreed breeds and household cats be judged, including Maine Coons, Ocicates, Siamese and Persians, and even see a couple of kittens and cats available for adoption from the Cat Corner, a Hampton nonprofit and the Heritage Humane Society, according to the Facebook event page.

Tickets are $6 for adults, $4 for seniors and children 6 to 12 years old. Children 5 and younger are free. Adults get $1 off admission by bringing cat food or litter.

Both nonprofits will be collecting cat food, bleach, laundry detergent and monetary donations.

In addition, the event will have free adult and kids coloring books and vendors for cat beds, toys, collars, carrier, grooming, accessories and more. See the full vendor list here.

“You can sit and watch cats on the judging table, or walk around and visit with the cats between judging,” according to the event page. “No matter what time you arrive you’re bound to see your favorite breed being judged.”

The CFA Cat Show is at the Knights of Columbus Hall, 12742 Nettles Drive, on Feb. 1 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Payment must be by cash or check — no credit or debit cards will be accepted. For more information or to enter your cat in the Household Pet Competition, contact Pete or Beth at dealnva@yahoo.com or 757-660-4256.
