Cat lovers of Melbourne and surrounds got a big treat last weekend from the organisers of the Cat Lovers Show Melbourne 2019.

Historic and amazingly beautiful Royal Exhibition Building in Carlton hosted hundreds of cats, their owners, traders, rescuers, vets, builders of cats' palaces and sanctuaries and even cat hoteliers.

There were crowds of children and adults at every stall. The Royal Canin Stage presented educational talks from some of Australia's more renowned animal experts, vets and behaviourists, including Dr Chris Brown, Dr Katrina Warren, Australia's newest Bondi Vet Dr Danni Dusek and animal advocate Rose Horton. And they were the biggest crowds winners.

Kids and grown-ups had plenty of opportunities to get up-close-and-paw-sonal with felines of all shapes, sizes and breeds in the Pat-A-Cat zone.

Pet rescue centres were a big presence as well. Besides being able to pat a kitten or even adopt one, visitors could donate money or purchase a nice souvenir or a useful item to support amazing and selfless work these men and women are doing to help abandoned furry babies.



To keep visitors active and fueled, there were a number of food stalls and pop up cafes, ice creamery and many photo opportunities. One could pretend to be a cat of different personalities or even pat a real cat.

The upper floor of the building was given solely to the cats and their owners. Visitors could see many breeds and to hear from their carers what it is like to serve a feline with pedigree.

No one left empty handed. There were show bags, pet food and fashion to purchase, prizes to be won and fluffy beds to be ordered.

Make sure you do not miss the show next year.

The only drawback for cat lovers was not being able to come with their own cats.
