The 2021 Cat Lovers Show returns this November! Join us at the greatest feline-focused-festival in Australia to celebrate everything that’s cool about Cats!

On Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd May 2021, the Cat Lovers Show will return to the magnificent Royal Exhibition Building!

The 2021 Show will continue to grow showcasing many more Cats prowling through the doors across the Trouble & Trix Breed Showcase, an Educational Stage, Black Hawk Stage, the Cat Adoption Zone & Stage and a Pat-A-Cat Zones with over 30 rare, pedigree and companion breeds and more than 15 feline-inspired visitor attractions.

A fundamental mission for us is to raise awareness for Cat rescue and adoption and to find as many loving and well-suited homes for felines in need. Visitors will be inspired in the Cat Adoption Zone and Stage and continue to learn so much about what is really involved with Cat adoption with talks from a wide range of leading shelters and rescue organisations.
