Cat lovers’ delight as moggies return


Around 200 cats from all over Scotland will descend on Dundee for a fur-tastic day of socialisin­g and showing off their looks.

The annual Dundee Championsh­ip Cat Show will be held today at the Caird Hall, hosted jointly by the Nor’ East of Scotland Cat Club and the Siamese Cat Society of Scotland.

Pedigree cats, as well as ordinary domestic moggies will be judged on their health, grooming and behaviour at the animal paw-nanza.

Bruce Bennett, one of the show’s organisers, said: “All cats need to be in immaculate condition, which is more difficult for the long-haired variety.

“They also have to be good tempered – we don’t like it if they bite the judges.

“We’ve been holding this event at the Caird Hall for over 20 years and the Dundee public are just wonderful.”

The show will be open to the public from 11.30 until about 4pm.
