Cats will be preened to perfection for judging of the Royal Melbourne Show Cat Championship on Monday 26 and Tuesday 27 September in the ADVANCE Dog Pavilion. An event that no cat-lover should miss, the cats will be judged down to the last whisker, with owners vying for a coveted blue ribbon.

This annual competition features a wide range of cats and kittens including the spectacular Bengal, huge Maine Coon and the fluffy Persians.

Over 3700 entries across more than 200 breeds compete in the southern hemisphere’s leading dog show, the Royal Melbourne Show All Breeds Championship Show.

The talented pooches will be on show from Saturday 17 September – Sunday 25 September, with judges assessing them based on a number of attributes including conformation, appearance, obedience and agility.

With thousands of perfectly groomed pooches on display, you’ll see a huge variety of breeds including this year’s feature breed, the whippet. The whippet is an agile and obedient dog that has the ability to reach speeds of up to 56km/h. That’s as fast as a car!
