You guys may not know that we took a hiatus from the dog game during the 1990s to try our hand with cats. While we admittedly prefer dogs, we did love the time we spent with our Persian cats.

If you are in the New York metro area this weekend stop by the Javits Center (on 11th Avenue between 34th and 39th Streets) and see beautiful examples of 160 dog breeds and 41 cat breeds. The American Kennel Club and the Cat Fanciers Association are proving that dog people and cat people can get along. While we doubt that any dog people or cat people will be converted to the other side, dog people will be amazed at the variety and different personalities of cats and cat people will be overwhelmed at the range of dog breeds available.

If you go, talk to cat people about color/pattern breeding, their scoring system, and the advantages of benched shows. You can read more about the event at the AKC web site.


  1. Well I flat out missed it.
    So could anyone here be kind enough to tell me if it would had been worth the 12 dollar admission fee?
