Exhibitors with a single entry using any size security cage are required to purchase an extra 1/2 cage. Litter will be available; bring your own litter pans, cat food, and dishes.
Although no sales cages are allowed at this show people in Pittsburgh love their kitties and will probably be looking for another addition to their family. If you have kittens available remember to bring your business cards and display them prominently to attract potential buyers.
