Associative Cat Movements

The First national Exhibition of cat in the United States was celebrated in the Madison Square Garden, New York, in 1895, and was organized by an English man named James T. Hyde.

As in Great Britain, it was preceded by the creation of a feline in a short time; cat’s exhibitions were generalized throughout the Anglo-Saxon world and Europe.

The development and mechanic of cat exhibitions are different from country t country, and parts of these differences are because of geographical reasons.

For example, in Great Britain the exhibitions generally last a day, in the continental Europe and in North America the exhibitions usually last longer (two days) and have a bigger number of participants.

In countries that have more than one association, the functioning may also differ, according to the rules of each one.

In the European continent, many participants travel to the main events in other countries that are under the supervision of the international feline federation.

Cat Exhibitions around the World
The main difference between the exhibitions on the different countries is the valuing of the procedures. In general terms, most of the European countries, North America and Japan, the judges make their valuation in a zone far away from the cat cages, and the presence of the animal’s owners and public is permitted.

In Great Britain and most of the commonwealth countries, judges visit the cages and don’t permit the presence of owners or public until the end of the valuation.

None of these systems have any special advantage, although maybe the first procedure generates more emotion in the public; in fact, these types of exhibitions are ore noisy than the British, of a style more sober.
