In just over a week, we’ll be attending our first ever Felis Britanica Cat Show. This organisation represents a federation of cat clubs in the UK, Channel Isles and Isle of Man. This event is their first international one of the year and is billed to be a great day out this spring with both judges and entrants traveling from all over Europe.
Here’s some more details of the event from Felis Brittanica’s own Press Release;
International Cat Show In Ampthill, Bedfordshire.
Do you love Cats? Then this event is for you.
Felis Britannica is holding an All Breed International Cat show

With over 150 cats present, including many different breeds on exhibition; Siberians, Maine Coons, Norwegian Forest Cats, Exotics, Sacred Birmans, British Shorthairs, Cornish Rex, Peterbalds, Burmese and Siamese, as well as many others, this will be a great day out for anyone who has a love of our feline friends. Exhibitors travel from all over the UK and from as far afield as Sweden, Belgium & Germany to compete for the coveted award of Best in Show. Judges have been invited from Belgium, Denmark and UK.
Winning cats are able to qualify for the Annual Felis Britannica Winners Show and also the Annual FIFe “World Show” which this year will be held in Tampere in Finland on the last weekendof October. Many exhibitors from the UK made the trip over to The Hague, in the Netherlands last year. Team GB came away with two world winners; WW’17 Cullykhan Nemesis (Persian) and WW’17 PR Amisti Pumbaa (the first Kurilean BobTail world winner).

Felis Britannica’s clubs organise between 10 and 12 shows per year around the UK including Scotland. FIFe is a federation of National Members from over 40 countries around the world and can perhaps be considered the United Nations of the Cat World.
Showing cats with Felis Britannica is Fun and Friendly and if you love Cats, you will love our shows.
