Welome to our Show!

The Chickadee Cat Club is proud to present the 2nd ACFA Championship & Household Pet Cat Show. Open to both purebred cats and household pets, including alters, this six ring event is the only one of its kind in New Brunswick. This year we welcome six judges, hailing from Kentucky, Iowa, Florida, Missouri, British Columbia, and Nova Scotia. In keeping with its theme of “Cats Helping Cats”, this year's Benefit Organization is the Kindness Club, which will receive a portion of the gate proceeds.

Last year’s event drew approximately 2500 spectators and nearly 100 cats from New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, P.E.I., and as far away as Ontario and Maine. Over 30 booths showcased local cat/animal welfare organizations (e.g. S.P.C.A.’s, Kindness Club, Ca-R-Ma) as well as many cat-themed vendors. A very successful raffle and silent auction, family entertainment, such as The Cat in the Hat, face painting, and a display of artwork by local children were also highlights. We are anticipating an even bigger and better show this year.

Besides being an opportunity for cat-lovers to gather together and show off their pets, this event is a chance to learn about cats and responsible pet ownership. In particular, breeders in the region are working hard to raise public awareness of acceptable breeding practices, in hopes of reducing both “kitten mills” and the number of unwanted pets. Come meet with registered, responsible breeders, who can help you choose your perfect pet, or adopt one of the wonderful pets available from local animal shelters. Many of the cats exhibited in the household pet division (including last year's winner) were originally rescued from shelters. With love and care they have become prized - and prize-winning - family members.
