The Cat Fanciers Association’s Cat Show made its return to Vermont this weekend, and The Doubletree Burlington had its fair share of fur-midible competitors.

Furry friends came from across the country, including Florida, Colorado and California, as well as from France and Switzerland. The competition featured a variety of breeds, from British Short Hairs to Abyssinians and Persians.

“We have the kitten category for kittens from four to eight months,” says Nancy Watt, the show’s manager. “Then we have the championship categories for adult cats eight months and older. We also have the premiership category which is for off-spade and neutered cats and then we have the domestic short hair.” 

Cats who scored in this competition go on to compete for the national championships.
