People have loved cats long before the invention of the Internet. Before the Internet, people had to enjoy cats in person, which is why cat shows are still popular today. On April 2, Cat Fanciers held their 41st annual cat show.

More than 200 cats representing 47 breeds were presented. Vendors offered crafts, gifts and toys for cats and their owners. Proceeds benefited Northern California animal rescue groups, disaster relief, and feline health research through grants from the Winn Foundation and UC Davis.

So the next time a cat show arrives in your area, be sure to drop by and see other people’s cats. At least that way you can enjoy a cat without having to clean up after it.
