372 cats from 17 European countries are participating in the WCF World Cat Show, organized by the Felis Croatia Cat Lovers Club in collaboration with the Karlovac Tourist Board, the City of Karlovac, and Zorin’s House. The event will take place on September 23rd and 24th from 10 am to 6 pm at the Economic-Tourist School, Kurelčeva 2 in Karlovac.
This is the first WCF World competition organized by the Felis Croatia team, who have previously hosted seven international exhibitions. Visitors will have the opportunity to see 17 world champion cats and 4 world premieres, as well as rare breeds like the Kurilian Bobtail, Transylvanian Cat, Bombay Cat, Munchkin, Cornish Rex, and many others. The best cats will be selected by ten international judges, and there will be an exciting program and attractions for visitors.
On Friday, September 22, 2023, at 8:00 pm, there will be a seminar on “Extremes in Breeding” by Leslie A. Lyons, a leading geneticist in the world of cats. The seminar is priced at 35 EUR and is open to all judges, breeders, and interested individuals.
In addition to the exhibition, visitors can also visit the Kitten Safe House booth, which supports the care and well-being of abandoned cats. The booth will showcase once-abandoned but now well-cared-for kittens, some of whom will participate in competitions. Visitors can also learn from breeders and cat experts about behavior, care, and habits, and get advice on adopting a kitten from the Cat Protection Association.
The highlight of the exhibition is the Best in Show, where the most beautiful cats are chosen from the participants. The event takes place on both days starting at 4:30 pm. Visitors can also benefit from veterinary advisory services, purchase cat toys and equipment, and have their photos taken with their cats by multi-award-winning photographer Gordana Popović from Pet Almighty Photography.
Admission to the exhibition is 2 EUR for children and 4 EUR for adults, and tickets can be purchased at the entrance to the hall.
