Wichita Cat Fancy Show Aims to Address Feral Feline Population

By Trish Svoboda

The Wichita Cat Fancy Show, taking place this weekend, has a deeper purpose other than displaying cute cats. The event also includes a Friends of Felines’ booth every year, which aids in addressing the region’s population of feral and abandoned cats. They are there to help answer the public’s questions and assist in finding solutions to help control the number of feral felines.

As stated on its Facebook page, the “goal is to educate the general public on the beauty and nature of cats and their proper care.”

The show features four rings for simultaneous judging, each with its own flown-in judge. In addition, there’s also a cat costume exhibition, vendors, and adoption organizations present. The event includes over 100 cats of various breeds, such as Persian and Siamese, and even has a category for household cats.

The Wichita Cat Fancy Show takes place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Feb. 3-4 at The Cotillion, 11120 W. Kellogg Dr. Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for kids and $10 for a family pass
