83rd Annual Garden State Cat Expo and Show

New York & New Jersey's Biggest Cat Expo is the purr-fect outing for cat lovers.

EDISON, N.J. - July 11, 2019 - PRLog -- The 83rd Annual Garden State Cat Club Expo promises to be the BEST Expo to date.

Located at the NJ Convention and Expedition Center, 97 Sunfield Ave, Edison, on July 20-21, this year's show offers fun for all ages.

This year's breed cat show is themed "Cats in Wonderland" which adds a playful and whimsical element to the 300-400 breed cats who strut their stuff in front of nine internationally renowned judges.

Considered one of the primo cat shows in the Cat Fancy Association, the Garden State Cat Show has attracted entries from around the country and as far away as Japan.

Not only will the competitors try to win "Best Cat" with their felines, they hope to win "Best themed hat" or "Best Cage decoration". Kathy Pritchard of Spotsylvania, Va. will be tough competition with her Cornish Rex cats dressed in one of 200 outrageous designer gowns and accessories.

Ms. Pritchard is returning as one of the main attractions at this year's Cats in Wonderland theme – come see the Famous Fashionistacats posing for photos on their cat sized grand piano. (see attached images)

Looking for a new feline family member? Come visit our many cages housing many cats and kittens who will be available for qualified adoptions. Last year's Expo proudly reports that 44 felines went successfully to forever homes. The GSCC hopes to top this number this year.

The Meow Mall offers great shopping from the many vendors selling unique cat themed items, as well as jewelry, food goods and many services for home and office. If shopping doesn't interest someone, there's plenty of booths that offer educational opportunities.

Steve Ross, Somerset, is an expert on CPR for pets and people. Renowned judge, Iris Zinck will have actual breed cats to teach the audience fun facts about Siamese, Maine Coons, Persians and many, many more.

If speed is of interest, there's the excitement of "Cat Agility" – the audience can watch as cats run through a timed obstacle course – some cross the finish line in 7 seconds – others might take 3 minutes – it's truly a fun activity to watch for everyone. (image attached)

Once again, world famous caricaturist Steve Nyman, Denville, will be at the show drawing keepsakes from photos, cell phones or people sitting in front of him. For a nominal donation to rescue cats, he will create a large portrait for years to enjoy. (Image attached)

Off the hook: California king salmon rebounds after drought

Aug 22, 2019

SAN FRANCISCO — California fishermen are reporting one of the best salmon fishing seasons in years, thanks to heavy rain and snow that ended the state's historic drought. It's a sharp reversal for chinook salmon, also known as king salmon. The iconic fish helps sustain many Pacific Coast fishing communities. A marine scientist with California's fish and wildlife agency says commercial catches have so far surpassed official preseason forecasts by roughly 50%. The salmon rebound comes after three years of extremely low catches resulting from poor ocean conditions and California's five-year drought. This year's adult salmon are the first class...

Aug 22, 2019

MEXICO CITY — Mexico's president is warning against a growing trend in which thieves drill illegal taps into pipelines carrying natural gas. At least two large-scale leaks have occurred in recent weeks at illegally tapped pipelines in central Mexico. President Andres Manuel López Obrador said Wednesday that "lately we have been seeing gas thefts, which is something very dangerous."
