Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show Allows Cats

For fans of the Westminster Kennel Club dog show, the headlines might have been alarming. “The Westminster dog show is adding cats this year,” Newsweek informed the world last week. “Cats crash Westminster dog show,” readers of the Denver Post learned.

What is true: Cats will, for the first time in several years, be on display at a joint Westminster-American Kennel Club event on Feb. 11, two days before the actual canine competition begins. It’s called “Meet the breeds,”  an occasion where members of the public can ogle and learn about many dozens of dog breeds, each with its own booth.

This year, out of the kindness of their canine-loving hearts, and because of a bit of public pressure, the American Kennel Club (AKC) decided to bring back cats, giving forty breeds of felines their own booths.
