Join Us for a Fun Celebration of Cats and their People!
The Average Joe Cat Show is a fun, family-friendly event hosted by Purrfect Pals. On May 6th, 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.” It will be a fantastic day celebrating cats and their quirks!
Our cat 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 several Puget Sound shelters and rescue groups, gourmet hot dogs and ice cream, 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 4th Annual “Kitten Cam Con,” a four day event in Seattle centered around the Average Joe Cat Show. At last year’s show, local fans of the kitten cam were joined by dozens who traveled from New England, Florida, Arizona, England, the Netherlands, Australia and more!
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 were hard at work raising money for their homeless persian friends.
Our 2017 Average Joe Cat Show is sure to be our biggest yet with more crazy cat people, more cats and more nonprofit rescue partners. Please Join Us!
