THE annual CoonTICA Cat Show returns to Stantonbury Campus this weekend, with more than 150 purrfect specimens of pedigree and household varieties showing out, writes Sammy Jones.

The fancy felines will doing their utmost to impress the judges, who are flying in from the USA, Australia and Europe to check the whiskered wonders.

Maine Coones, Bengals, British Shorthairs and Selkirk Rexes will get their claws out alongside rarer breeds including Singapura, Toyger and those most wonderful hairless Sphynx’s.

Household moggies will compete among themselves just like those aforementioned pedigree puddy-tats.

CoonTICA has operated these annual events here in the new city for the past seven years, and they are an essential visit for every cat lover.

Aside from the competition, you can pick up a gift or two for your own cuddly cat, with lots of mog-related items.

Craft stalls dealing in feline fancies will also compete for attentions.

The MK & District branch of Cats Protection will have a stand at the event, and CoonTICA will donate £1 of your entrance fee to the charity for every person who brings a copy of this article along to the event.

The show will run from 9.30am to 4pm on Saturday and Sunday.

Admission is £3 for adults, £2 for seniors and £1 for children, payable on the doors.
