Celebrate Cats and Cat Lovers at the 2016 Average Joe Cat Show!
The Average Joe Cat Show is a fun, family-friendly event hosted by Purrfect Pals. On May 7th, 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.” Think of this event as a huge party to celebrate cats and their quirks!
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, gourmet hot dogs from Dante’s Inferno, greek food from Athena’s food truck, a vendor fair designed with cat lovers in mind and a silent auction to support Purrfect Pals.
Fans of Foster Dad John’s Critter Room Kitten Cam are organizing the 3rd Annual “Kitten Cam Con,” a four day event in Seattle centered around the Average Joe Cat Show. Last year, local fans of the kitten cam were joined by dozens who traveled from New England, Florida, Arizona, England, the Netherlands, Australia and more! Registration is now open. Sign up online today!
Over in the Seattle Persian and Himalayan Rescue Kissing Booth, internet celebrity kitties Brimley (America’s Next Cat Star), Fancy of Fancy & Friends, Percy the Persian, and Merlin the Meowciful will be raising money for their homeless persian friends.
