Fanciers and the National Birman Fanciers’ cat shows. The location Purina Farms, and its Events Center, where the cat shows were held, was quite impressive. Both shows were excellently managed, and we greatly appreciated the invitation and hard work by everyone involved. There were many beautiful cats, including those shown in the household cats competition, where shelter and rescue cats can also be entered. I definitely got my Birman fix with all the adorable kittens and lovely adults. Thanks to Charli, the NBF show manager, I also g...
