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)

May 29, 2020

MOSCOW — President Vladimir Putin engineered a surprise shakeup of Russia's leadership Wednesday, proposing changes to the constitution that could keep him in power well past the end of his term in 2024. Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev resigned his post after Putin announced the proposed constitutional amendments.

Putin’s proposed constitutional reforms, announced...

Sultan Qaboos bin Said, who modernized Oman, dies at 79

May 29, 2020

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Oman’s Sultan Qaboos bin Said, the Mideast's longest-ruling monarch who seized power in a 1970 palace coup and pulled his Arabian sultanate into modernity while carefully balancing diplomatic ties between adversaries Iran and the U.S., has died. He was 79. The British-educated, reclusive sultan reformed a nation that was home to only three schools and harsh laws banning electricity, radios, eyeglasses and even umbrellas when he took the throne. Under his reign, Oman became known as a welcoming tourist destination and a key Mideast interlocutor, helping the U.S. free captives in Iran and Yemen and...

On streets of Tehran, relief for now at no wider conflict

May 29, 2020

TEHRAN, Iran — Iranian newspapers proclaimed the country's attack on U.S. forces in Iraq to be "a dark night for Americans," and Washington's "first admission of failure in history." On the bustling streets of Tehran, however, there was relief Thursday that neither side appeared primed for war. “War is not something like the ‘Call of Duty’ game," said Dara Shojaei, a 23-year-old architecture student. “It's not a game you can play to win. There's no winner.” But with the relief came some mixed feelings about how far Iran should go to avenge the killing of Revolutionary Guard Gen. Qassem Soleiman,...

NEW YORK — U.S stocks climbed in morning trading on Thursday as investors cheered confirmation from China that its top trade official will head to Washington next week to sign a preliminary trade deal. The “Phase 1” accord is the opening step on a possible path toward a broader agreement between the nations. President Donald Trump has said he will travel to Beijing after the initial signing to start the second stage of talks. Every major index is on track for a record as Wall Street distances itself from a bout of anxiety over the last week because of tensions...

Soleimani, a general who became Iran icon by targeting US

May 29, 2020

TEHRAN, Iran — For Iranians whose icons since the Islamic Revolution have been stern-faced clergy, Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani widely represented a figure of national resilience in the face of four decades of U.S. pressure. For the U.S. and Israel, he was a shadowy figure in command of Iran's proxy forces, responsible for fighters in Syria backing President Bashar Assad and for the deaths of American troops in Iraq. Solemani survived the horror of Iran’s long war in the 1980s with Iraq to take control of the Revolutionary Guard’s elite Quds Force, responsible for the Islamic Republic’s foreign campaigns. Relatively...
