The Average Joe Cat Show is a fun, family-friendly event hosted by Purrfect Pals. On May 9th, dozens of cats will gather at Shoreline’s Spartan Recreation Center to compete in silly cat show categories such as “Most Impressive Ear Hair” and “Loudest Purr.”

Our photography show will showcase a room full of images of kitty models who are competing for titles like “Best Cat in a Box” and “Grumpiest Looking Cat.”

The event will also feature volunteers, staff and adoptable kitties from ten Puget Sound shelters and rescue groups, hot dogs and gourmet ice cream, a vendor fair designed with cat lovers in mind and a silent auction to support Purrfect Pals.

Cat Lovers From All Over the World Attended our 2014 Show!

Thanks to increased media attention, the 2014 Average Joe Cat Show attracted its biggest crowd yet!  We were on the cover of the Seattle Times and in a KOMO 4 News broadcast. The show was even featured in Lonely Planet’s “Best of Travel 2014″ as one of the Top 10 destinations in the world for cat lovers!

We even had some special celebrity guests at the show this year! Oskar the Blind Cat and his buddy, Klaus, were at the show with some of their awesome cat toys and other goodies!

Fans of Foster Dad John’s Critter Room Kitten Cam organized the first annual “Kitten Cam Con,” a four day event in Seattle centered around the Average Joe Cat Show.  Local fans of the kitten cam were joined by dozens who traveled from New England, Florida, Arizona and Australia!  Plans are already being made for the second annual convention.
