The Malta Feline Guardians Club (MFGC) is holding its 78th and 79th International Cat Shows on Saturday, September 22 and Sunday, September 23 with both events starting at 10am at Montekristo Estates, Hal Farrug.
During these two shows, different range of breeds will be showcased, which includes: Balinese, Bengals, British Shorthairs, Burmese, Deveon Rex, Exotics, Himalayabs, Main Coons, Persians, Ragdolls, Scottish Folds, Siberian Sphynx and also household cats.
For the first time in Malta, a new breed coming from Russia, the Abyssinian, will be on display.
For this event, the MFGC invited two World Cat Federation (WCF) all-breed judges. Olga Dentico from Italy together with Edward Borras from Spain will be judging these cat shows where four categories – baby kittens, kittens, adults and domestic cats – will be competing for the Best in Show, followed by the General Best and Super General Best.
Also, there will be WCF Rings Awards – Adult Ring, Neuter Ring, Kitten Ring and Fun Ring. The Speciality Ring will focus on the best features or abilities of the cat/kitten.
For the first time in Malta, this year the MFGC will be holding a mono-breed show for the Siberian breed, which is new on our island.
Do not miss this opportunity as these events serve as an educational outing for all the family where children appreciate more these creatures, while also learn more about the care and handling of these beautiful felines. Entrance for visitors is free of charge.
So come and join the fun on both days to witness these loveable cats who fill our lives with love.
