Round of A-paws


By Allie Daugherty

The San Diego Cat Fanciers (SDCF) club will host its annual cat show January 28 and 29 at the Del Mar Fair Grounds. For cat lovers, it’s the pawsitively purrfect way to spend a weekend.

“About three to four thousand people a day come to see the cats,” says Sandee Gilbert, media representative for SDCF. “It’s a big event.”

Nearly 500 cats will compete in agility courses - obstacles include tunnels, hurdles and hoops - and a variety of other cat-egories.

“There are eight courses the cats have to go through,” Gilbert says. “We consider it eight separate shows they are judged in.”

Eight courses, nine lives, one great reason to attend: pussy jokes.
