Feline fanciers head to championship cat show in Joplin

Updated:
The ozark mountain cat club is hosting a national championship cat show. It includes about a dozen vendors, as well as the southeast kansas humane society and local veterinarian ben Levins, offering free feline health advice.  

The highlight of the show, of course, is the judging. Owners bring their cats to be judged on various traits including personality, coat and body structure.   

This is the first year for the club to host the show in Joplin.

"We're really happy that we're able to bring an event like this to Joplin, because frequently there aren't a lot of family friendly events that you can come to and this is sort of thing that you can come to at a really reasonable cost," said event organizer and cat breeder Dan Goepfert.

The show also runs Sunday from 9 am to 4 pm. Reduced admission is offered to those who bring a can or bag of cat food or kitty litter.
