The Yorkshire and Cumberland Cat Show: Hundreds of felines in South Yorkshire for one of UK's largest cat shows
The showing and competition of pedigree breeds was jointly hosted by Governing Council of the Cat Fancy (GCCF) members Yorkshire Cat Club and Cumberland Cat Club, attracting hundreds of cats to the Doncaster Dome.
Both show cats and household pets, pedigree and non-, competed in different categories as the successful felines and their owners were hopeful of winning the grand prize as ‘Best in Show’. Last year the trophy was taken home by York breeder Rebecca Eagland and her Abyssinian - Abychat Eye-of-the-tiger.
GCCF rules state that winning cats must “have a good temperament, be presented well, be shown in very good condition and have a good personality too”.
There were opportunities for members of the public to not only sample wares from the numerous stalls at the event, but also to talk to breeders and learn about pedigree breeds and their characteristics.

Health experts have long sung the praises of the humble banana, and it’s no surprise. They’re readily available, count as one of your five a day, and at just around 90 calories per fruit, are packed with the essential mineral potassium, which scientists believe could be crucial in the battle against high blood pressure (a third of adults in England are thought to suffer from the condition.)
