N.E.M.O.s Annual Cat-and-Owner Costume Contest
Part of the fun of a cat show is seeing the cats all spiffed up to strut their stuff in the judging rings. At our eighth annual show on August 22-23 in Sturbridge, MA, the owners get to join in the fun – in a way that never fails to garner lots of applause and a-mews-ment! It all happens Sunday, August 23, at approximately 12:30 and will only last about half an hour, so make sure you arrive on time so as not to miss a thing!
Every year, a number of exhibitors come up with creative, original, and FUNNY costumes that incorporate a cat as an integral part of the costume. Past contestants have included such gems as Harry Potter (with the cat standing in for a winged owl), Drogon the dragon from “Game of Thrones” (with the cat dressed up as Daenerys), Little Red Riding Hood (with the cat as the Wolf), Fred Astaire (whose dancing partner was a feline Ginger Rogers), Joan of Arc (with a haloed kitty as one of her “heavenly voices”) and many many more. Here are a few from past years.
Two judges will review the contestants’ presentations and select the winners.
