We report our fair share of doggo and pupper news here, but too often we find ourselves running very low on cat news. Well, that has changed.

For the first time next year, Melbourne will play host to the Cat Lovers Show following on from the great success of the award-winning Dog Lovers Show of 2017.

The show will take place on September 8 and 9 at the Royal Exhibition Building, and will feature a wide array of exhibits that cat fanciers from all around Melbourne—and wherever else they’ve travelled from—will enjoy.

Cat-tastic attractions you can expect to see:

  • Royal Canin Stage | Featuring celebrity vets, behaviour experts, trainers, and wild cat conservationists including Dr Katrina Warren, Dr Harry Cooper, and more.
  • Horton & Nat Geo Wild’s Ben Britton | Ben will present eduCATional talks ranging from health, lifestyle, training, and how to solve common cat conundrums.
  • Insta-Kitty | You’ll get the chance to snap a selfie with some of Instagram’s most famous felines here. The social media stars will slink down the red carpet, take part in media interviews, and be there to interact with their fans.
  • Cat Adoption Zone | More than 25% of cats in Australia have been rescued or are from adopted shelters. This zone will provide you with info and contacts so that you can make a top notch decision on the how and why to bring a rescue cat into your home.
  • Breed Showcase | There will be a wide array of cats and kittens from respected breeders on show. Learn about the temperament, and characteristics of each breed.
  • Purrfect Match Zone | An interactive questionnaire that will help you gather the info needed to make an informed decision on which breed you should choose for yourself.
  • Pat-A-Cat-Zone | Get up close and personal with kitties of all shapes and sizes and given them a good old love up.
  • Cat Colosseum | The Colosseum will showcase everything from skateboarding felines to talented jumping cats.

There will be more than 120 exhibitors at the show as well as a tonne of new product launches, and exclusive show specials.

This is really shaping up as the pawfect event.
