Meow Fest 1, December 2014
A unique festival dedicated to cats!
Belgrade, December 14, 2014: a unique festival dedicated to cats took place in Belgrade - Meow Fest. Organizers from Club Le PETit WCF invited visitors and exhibitors with following words: dear cat-lovers, please welcome to meow, purr, cuddle, to roar if needed, to learn and most of all - to have fun!
Licenced International WCF Cat Show
The main program of the Festival was the first International Le PETit WCF Cat Show. More than 90 cats competed for prestigious titles. All famous cat breeds were present: Siamese, Oriental, Thai, Persian, Exotic Shorthair, Russian Blue, Sacred Birman, Maine Coon, Siberian, Neva Masquerade, Norwegian Forest, Scottish Fold and Straight cats, British shorthair and longhair, Turkish Angora and others. There were also some unique breeds, for example lavish and rare Nebelung, Cornish Rex and Sphynx cats. Belgrade had the honor to host a Aphrodite Giant cat, for the first time in this part of Europe. Cats and their owners came from all nearby countries - Slovenia, Croatia, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Greece. Adopted domestic cats competed too - one came all the way from Bulgaria.
Prizes were awarded in all show categories (long-hair, semi-longhair and short-hair) and classes (kittens, juniors, neuters, adults). The Supreme prize was won by one fantastic British shorthair cat - Iskra!
Cats were judged by a team of three WCF judges, headed by Andreas Mobius, Secretary General of WCF - World Cat Federation. Mobius is one of the most famous felinologists of today and also a great showman, so the audience in show hall had a great time!
Meow Fest creative programs
Besides the presentation of various cat breeds, kittens for adoption, useful tips and lectures, artwork bazaar, Meow Fest provided many creative and fun programs for visitors on the upper floor of Mikser House. During the festival, there were many entertaining workshops for adults and children (aged 6 years and above).
Great interest for our first Meow Fest
Organizers promoted Festival and love for cats on all prime TV and printed media. The Festival had 1600 adult visitors and many children. The event will be regular, and Club Le PETit WCF has begun preparations for the next Meow Fest - two days long, even bigger and more colorful :)
