We will be hosting a “SPOOKTACULAR” HALLOWEEN COSTUME CONTEST for the CATS! Dress your little one in his/her favorite costume and enjoy the fun! Great prizes will be awarded by our contest judging team, “Count and Countess Dinesen”, for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places!

We are also planning to host Dr. Leslie Lyons and her team of students from the University of Missouri College of Veterinary Medicine! Her research focuses on genetic aspects of domestic cats, including inherited diseases, traits, and population dynamics, which are applied to genetic disease studies, translational medicine, genetic testing, and forensic applications.

We will be hosting the first annual Gail Rothman Food Drive. Our beloved Gail was the definition of a cat fancier and she bred Himalayans. She worked tirelessly behind the scenes to bring shows to fruition and she was the former president of Tiger’s Lair. She was a loving and devoted friend, and she made a mean veggie pizza! Please remember to bring your feline food items, which will be donated to the Mid-Missouri Humane Society and other shelters in Sedalia.

Additional activities include exciting door prizes (1 each hour between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.), a fabulous raffle with items you will not to leave without, and LOTS of vendors, so don’t forget your wallets! We are hoping a SPECIAL GUEST will arrive, so don’t forget to bring your camera! He may not want to leave his lasagna (Hint! Hint!), but we sure hope this mystery guest makes it to the show!
