Organised by the Cat Fanciers Club of Thailand, the event promotes “greater development” for cats and owners and offers an opportunity to be part of an international competition.
This is the first time Thailand is presenting its standard cat breeds thanks to the collaboration of Thai cat farms and the Thailand Cat Club. The event will also support Thai tourism, with free entry for spectators.
Highlights are the contests for Thai breeds, for all international cat breeds with pedigree certificates, and for castrated cats and mixed breeds.
A certified jury from the international Cat Fanciers’ Association will do the judging in the standard CFA eight rings.
Chunky Barrol, a celebrity cat, will purr with fans at the booth of Thonglor Pet Hospital, where veterinarians will offer free consultations, checkups, antiflea drops and rabies vaccinations.
Barrol, star of the “JowBarrol” Facebook page, will be comparing coats with fellow famous felines Johnny the Copper Cat, Hachi Hane from the Hashiharit Facebook page, Meeboon and superstar cats from the MEO Me & You Series.
All sorts of pet food and interesting items will be on sale and cat lovers can learn to make their own cat toys at a free DIY corner.
