Want to see some purrty cats (get it?) and help raise money for animal humane organizations at the same time? Then you're in luck: The Houston Cat Club will hold its 60th annual show January 5 and 6 at the George R. Brown Convention Center.
The show has raised more than $800,000 for cat charities in its 60 years, according to a group spokesperson. At least 300 entries are expected from across the country -- both pedigreed and non-pedigreed.
"In addition to the judging, spectators can also watch cats running an agility course, or visit one of the 50 vendor booths with pet-related items," according to a press release. "One of the most well-attended events is the costumed-cat contest at noon on Saturday."
The show will also feature Walker, a 25-pound Maine coon cat; two local veterinarians will also be on hand to answer questions. There's also an education area for kids.
