Cat Lovers Show

The Cat Lovers Show 2019 is here! (yes, here at Pooches at Play, we love cats too!)

The 2019 Cat Lovers Show is SO much BIGGER and SO much better! This event is a tribute to the unconditional love that we share with our cats and this year Pooches at Play will join in all the fun to celebrate and help us learn more about our Best Friends. Co-Host Lara Shannon will be MC’ing the PETstock Assist Adoption Stage activities for all two days in Melbourne, so make sure you pop upstairs to say ‘hi’!

This year’s excitement includes:

• Discover everything you need to know about providing a loving home for a Cat in need in the PETstock Assist Adoption Zone, this year with even more rescue groups taking part, experts on hand and the dedicated PETstock Assist Adoption Stage where Lara Shannon from Pooches at Play on Channel Ten will talk with leading Cat shelters.

• The Trouble & Trix Breed Showcase returns and will be tripled in size compared to last year with over 30 breeds represented and a great opportunity to meet and learn about a wide array of wonderful Cats from respected breeders and owners to help understand lifestyle requirements, temperament and characteristics.

• Have any breed specific questions? The all-new Trouble & Trix Ask-A-Breeder Stage has talks scheduled across both days giving insights on over 20 breeds represented at the show.

• Free Feline Face Painting, a Funny Photo Wall and Cat-art & Craft activities in the GET CATTY! Kitty-Kids Zone!

• Kids and grown-ups will love the opportunity to get up-close-and-paw-sonal with felines of all shapes, sizes and breeds in the Pat-A-Cat zone.

• Add a little feline-flair to your outfit on the day to make it the biggest Cat-dress up party in Australia! The Kitty-Cosplay CATwalk Fashion Purrade will be returning with a daily cash prize for the best outfit!

• Free vet, behaviour, grooming and training advice is available all day and every day in the Ask-An-Expert zone – without the bill!

• No festival is complete without an offering of yummy food trucks and mouth watering culinary delights. The new Feline-Food Truck Park will present some of Melbourne most popular food trucks for you to take a break and enjoy throughout your day plus we have also substantially increased the number of cafe outlets within the show.

• Entertaining and educational demonstrations in the Black Hawk Colosseum showcasing some amazing Cat-talents that you have to see to believe including Catmantoo featuring Didga and Bindi, plus trainer-extraordinaire Kelly Gill and her TV star kitty ‘Tigger’!

• Enter the Major Door Prize at the show via iPads at the entry points and go into the draw to WIN a cat-pack full of fantastic goodies for your Puss worth over $1,000.

We can’t wait to get amongst all the action this year – make sure you buy tickets!
