Is there a Crufts equivalent for cats?The Supreme Cat Show is organised every year, but the show is much less understated than its canine equivalent.Unlike Crufts, which is organised by The Kennel Club, The Supreme Cat Show is organised by the world’s oldest cat registry, the Governing Council of the Cat Fancy.
The show is not televised, and is not subjected to the same public fanfare, but is equally as prestigious for cat breeders as Crufts is for dog breeders.
