KUCHING: Kuching Cat Fiesta is here. This fun cat show, organised by a group of cat enthusiasts from Coon Elixir Cattery, Manekineko Cattery and Purrpets Sdn Bhd, is on today at Level 2 of Kuching Sentral Mall.

Cat lovers and owners will find the fest both useful and interesting because it will be their chance to show off their pets and win prizes and learn more about responsible pet ownership, proper grooming as well as pet products that are available in the market.

Premium brands such as Nature’s Protection (M), Mushroom Cat and Cat Cature are sponsoring the event where a wide range of pet-related
products will be on sale.

More than 20 participants have entered 65 cats to compete in the show.

The cats are divided into six broad categories: Pedigree Adult Longhair, Pedigree Adult Shorthair, Pedigree Kitten Longhair, Pedigree Kitten Shorthair, Household Pet Adult and Household Pet Kitten.

There will be cat breeds of all shapes and sizes including British Shorthairs, Maine Coons, Persians, Bengals and many more.

To include and encourage the participation of local cats, the show organisers have also introduced two grand prizes that are specific for local mixed breeds — ‘Best Household Cat’ and ‘Best Cat Fashionista’.

The judges are Diana Ting (Kuching) and Eric Ou (Seremban). 

The event is open to members of the public from 11am to 6pm.

Show manager Cheryl Cheah, however would like to remind the public that they will not be allowed to enter the benching area of the show cats.

“In the past, visitors complained that they were not allowed to enter or touch the cats at the exhibitors’ area.

“While we understand that the visitors are curious and wish to interact with these beautiful felines, it is important to note that these cats may be distressed from all the noises and unfamiliar people looking or
touching them, which is why we will only allow viewing the cats from safe and comfortable distance,” Cheah said.
