Cats strut their stuff at annual show
By PRESS DEMOCRAT STAFF
Cat lovers delighted at the diverse range of pedigrees that filled the Sonoma County Fairgrounds in Santa Rosa Sunday with purrs and mews.
A cast of 143 felines competed for Best Cat or Best Kitten in show at the Call of the Wild Cat Fanciers 25th annual show, as well as a range of other awards
including the audience’s choice.

“From a hairless sphinx to a Persian with five-inch long fur, they’re so different you can’t believe they’re the same species,” said Kristy Dal Poggetto, treasurer of the Santa Rosa-based Wild Cat Fanciers that puts on the yearly show.
Cats arrived from across northern California and far-flung states such as Texas to perform at the two-day event that ended Sunday. A judge made the trek from Germany, Dal Poggetto said.
