Cat show pounces into St. Paul

JAY BOLLER | Updated 1/24/2013

The 37th annual Saintly City Cat Club Championship Cat Show paws its way to the RiverCentre Saturday and Sunday.

Cats? Everyone loves 'em. Shows? Why, they're nearly as adored. That's what makes the formula for the Saintly City Cat Club Championship Cat Show such a winning one. 

Returning for a 37th year of feline pageantry, the show aims to please cat fanciers of all stripes with wall-to-wall kitty antics. Who will win the Winter Carnival Household Pet King & Queen? Impossible to say, but we know this much: the winning cats will get decked out in royal regalia! There's also ribbons for Best-Decorated Cage, Spectator's Choice and more.

Based on the earth-shattering attendance at last year's inaugural Cat Video Film Fest at the Walker, it appears Twin Citians have a tabby-to-tuna-level appetite for all things frisky and whiskered.

Here's an idea of what to (hopefully) expect at this weekend's show:

Saintly City Cat Club Annual Championship Cat Show

When: 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Sat.; 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Sun.

Where: Saint Paul RiverCentre, 175 Kellogg Blvd W. #501, St. Paul.
