The Catfederacy Cat Club will once again bring its annual cat show to Gettysburg this weekend.

The event, sanctioned by the American Cat Fanciers Association, will take place at Lincoln Elementary from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. March 22-23.

About 100 cats from all over the country will take place in the show, Catfederacy President Dorie Eckhart said. Cats will represent a variety of breeds and include both registered purebreds and unregistered household pets.

Numerous vendors, featuring items like cat furniture, toys, ceramics and jewelry, will be available throughout the day for feline enthusiasts.

The Catfederacy has sponsored numerous Gettysburg shows since its inception in 1982. Although the club stopped hosting shows for several years when costs became too high, this year's event will mark the club's fifth consecutive show.

Past shows have drawn crowds of up to 600 people, Eckhart said.

As in past years, the Catfederacy will donate proceeds from the event to a local society for the prevention of cruelty to animals.
