One of the largest annual U.S. cat shows, The Houston Charity Cat Show draws pedigreed cats from around the world to compete in eight judging rings. The show is sanctioned by the Cat Fanciers’ Association, with 41 breeds eligible to be shown at CFA shows. More than 200 cats are expected to be entered in this year’s show. You’ll also see cats running agility courses, a Meow Mall full of vendors, a special children’s area, Pet-Me-Cats and a meet-the-breed ring where you can hear owners talk about their breeds. This charity event supports the Houston SPCA, the Houston Humane Society, Citizens for Animal Protection and Hopeless and Orphaned Pet Endeavor (HOPE). Animal rescue shelters from Harris, Fort Bend and Galveston counties will have free space at the show to offer pets for adoption. The show goes from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday at the George R. Brown Convention Center, Hall E. Ticket prices are: $9.99 for adults, $8 for seniors and military and $4 for children ages 5 to 12. For more information, visit houstoncatclub.org.
The Cats on Glass Gallery, curated by Fresh Step Clean Paws (and known as a pop-up with a purpose) comes to Los Angeles today. It debuted in New York last year and what was intended as a limited-time exhibit exceeded all expectations with more than 7,000 visitors, dozens of cat adoptions and applications filled out during the five-day event. During the LA run, there will be the same larger-than-life cat display, pom-pom room, me-owm meditation center, adoption lounge and feature exhibit: a live Cats on Glass Playhouse. There will also be a few Hollywood additions, including adoptable cats from spcaLA and cat-lebrity Walk of Fame featuring Kitten Lady, Nala Cat, Lil Bub, White Coffe Cat and more.

Get in on the action at one of the largest cat events in the region. Hundreds of cats will strut their stuff in front of judges from all over the world, all vying for top awards. Help raise funds by bringing a two-can donation for the Oregon Food Bank, and you’ll save $2 on entry. This year the TICA-affiliated show not only moves to a new location – the Portland Expo Center – but it will also be televised via syndicated network television.
