Purrfect Pals News

Thank You for Joining Purrfect Pals at the 2017 Average Joe Cat Show!

On May 6th, dozens of cats gathered at Shoreline’s Spartan Recreation Center to compete in silly cat show categories such as “Most Impressive Ear Hair” and “Loudest Purr.” The 14th Annual Average Joe Cat Show was a fantastic day celebrating cats and their quirks!

Our cat photography show was our biggest yet and showcased a room full of images of kitty models who competed for titles like “Best Cat in a Box” and “Grumpiest Looking Cat.”

The event also featured 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 organized the 4th 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, England, the Netherlands, Australia and more!

We also had some very special celebrity guests at the 2017 Average Joe Cat Show! Oskar the Blind Cat and his buddy, Klaus, were back at the show with some of their awesome cat toys and other goodies.

Over in the Seattle Persian and Himalayan Rescue Kissing Booth, internet celebrity kitties Brimley (America’s Next Cat Star) and Percy the Persian, were hard at work raising money for their homeless persian friends.
