REPORTS FROM EARLY CAT SHOWS IN THE CALIFORNIA, USA

LOS ANGELES

SPORTING NEWS - THE BENCH SHOW WILL OPEN WEDNESDAY – The Los Angeles Times, 18th April, 1892
On Wednesday next the fourth annual bench show of the Southern California Kennel-Club will open at Hazard’s Pavilion [. . .] The entries, which closed on Saturday, comprise over 200 dogs, among their number being some of the most famous animals in the State. Owing to a woeful lack of interest on the part of owners of felines the cat show has been declared off, the entries being too few to warrant the club in trying the experiment.

PRIZE WINNERS - The Los Angeles Times, 17th January, 1901
A discouraged little dog sat on a Broadway curbing last evening. He had been summarily ejected from the poultry and pet stock exhibit, after making a dash at the prize Belgian hare. The quarters were well filled all day with people interested in cats, hens and rabbits, and the judges labored industriously in making awards. The Angora cats attracted special attention. Those entered in the exhibit are from imported stock, and while the fancy feline craze has not yet struck the city full blast, a large number of these aristocrats are being brought here. H. Langley, who judged the rabbits and cats [. . .] was awarded a vote of thanks for his impartial judging. The awards up to date are:

Cat exhibit, Angora Variety:
Royal Kennels, first in black male, female, black and white; buff male; also first prise for best stud In competition.
Exhibit by Mrs. B. J. Bogalsky — White male, first; white female, second; buff female, first; buff and white male kitten, first; white female, first; buff male, second; first prize for best exhibit, quantity and quality.
S. Gerson exhibit — First in blue and white kitten; buff and white male, gray and white female, blue male, blue and white male, black female; first prise for best variety display. Mr, Gerson is the gentleman who introduced in the city these imported cats.

CAT NOBILITY TO BE SHOWN – Los Angeles Times, 28th November, 1905
Members of the Southern California Cat Club have decided to hold a show for high-bred cats this winter. The aristocratic felines will be exhibited at the Chutes on January 18, 19 and 20.

Mrs. J.C. Girton, the energetic president, is making plans and already has the promise of more than fifty blue-blooded cats to compete for the prizes. This is the first cat show ever held here, and members of the club and many others are interested in the movement. There will be a number of beautiful cups and ribbons to be awarded; among others is the elegant silver challenge cup which the National Association, of Chicago, is sending.

The coops in which the cats are to be exhibited are on their way from the East and arrangements are being made to have this display as much like the kennel show in Chicago as possible. Mrs. Girton has the largest number of finely bred cats in this city, all of which she will exhibit. Mrs. Leland Norton, who started the Chicago Cat Club and was leader in the kennel show movement, also has a number of fine cats which she will place on exhibition.

Not only are aristocratic cats to receive prizes, but there are also to be some for the pretty common pussies. In fact, the long, silky-haired pets of my lady*» boudoir will in all probability rub noses with some of the common short-haired kitties of the back yard, and never know the difference.

One evening last week the Southern California Cat Club was entertained at the beautiful new home of Dr. and Mrs. Kriechbaum, No. 2809 West Twenty-fourth street, and it was at this meeting that arrangements were made for the coming kennel show. Dr. Barton of Pasadena, who has a number of fine felines, was elected honorary member of the club. Those elected to membership were: Mrs. Dora G. Clark and W. L. Wolfe of this city, and Miss Mary M. Bakewell of Ulverside.

After the business session, a social evening was enjoyed, those present being: Mr. and Mrs. J. C. Girton. Mrs. O. H. Burbridge, Miss Jay, Mr. and Mrs. H. Girton, Mrs. E. C. Ferleyhough, Mr. and Mrs. W. L. Wolfe, Mrs. Blakeslee, Mrs. G. C. Johnson, Mrs. Dora J. Clarke and Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Searle.

[1906] NEWS OF SOCIETY—GOSSIP OF MEN AND WOMEN. EVENTS OF THE WEEK – Los Angeles Times, 14th January, 1906

Pedigreed cats are the latest fad of the smart set, and the bushy-tailed long-coated pussies bid fair to usurp the long-established place of the petted lap dog. Society women of the city are planning to make the cat show, which is to take place on Saturday 18, 19 and 20 at Chutes Park, a fine affair. The beautiful, long-haired pets, which so many of the society women have purchase are treated to milk-and-egg diets and their silken coats are brushed and combed regularly that they may appear to the best at this, the first show of its kind ever given in this part of the country.

Through the kindness of handsome Mrs. Fred Maier, women of the Southern California Cat Club were enabled to have the Chutes Theater for exhibition purposes. Mrs. Maier is a member of the club, and one of the cat enthusiasts, and the beautiful long- haired pet which she owns is said to be the most gorgeous ever brought here. He is named Blue Bonnie, and is a blue angora, with green eyes and a tail that measures about ten inches across. Mr. and Mrs. Maier purchased this beauty while on their honeymoon trip a year ago from Mrs. Colburn, a noted cat fancier of the East, and he has a pedigree that dates back a hundred years, his grandfather having had the distinction of riding over the great Sahara Desert on a camel's back, he being safely inclosed in a basket. Blue Bonnie has captured all the prizes at the big eastern shows, and his proud mistress is planning to have his stall “a thing of beauty and a joy forever." It is to be all lined with pale blue silk to set off his royal highness's beauty, and he will be ensconced in a fancy basket, softly padded with eiderdown and lined with gorgeous satin.

The show has been divided into three distinct days — the first designated as "Judging day," the second as "society day," and the third "children’s day." That the show will prove a drawing card is a surety, since so many society women are interesting themselves in the cause. Los Angeles is a "city of cats," and if the owners of these pets can be interested in the project, at least 300 will be on exhibition.

Two cats which will prove of special interest are the Siamese pair, belonging to Mrs. M. M. Seward of Poughkeepsie, N.Y., who is passing the winter here. They are full-blooded Siamese, a rarity in this country, and were brought to Mrs. Seward by her son-in-law, Hon. Hamilton King, Minister to Slam. They are gentle, sleek little things, and answer to the names of King Chua and Queen Sowadha.

Mrs. J. C Girton, the president of the Cat Club, has one of the finest and probably the largest collection of rare cats in the city, and her kennels are well known for the exquisite specimens of cat flesh. She will exhibit a number of white Angoras, Persians and Siamese cats; also some beautiful blue angoras. Among others who will display specimens from their collection are Mrs. Meharry, Altadena; Mrs. Girling, Hollywood; Mrs. Wooster, Hollywood; Mrs. J. W. Searles, Mrs. Fred Maier, Mrs. Arland, Mrs. Fulks, Mrs. George Johnson and Mrs. W. B. Williams.

One of the most interesting to be exhibited will be the tame wild cat owned by Mrs. Stevens of Pasadena. Mrs. Stevens also has a number of beautiful Angoras, which she will contribute to the show. Mrs. Mercer of Pasadena will also display from her cattery, and a number of Manx cats will be shown, beside some short-haired ones. San Francisco and San José also are expected to contribute handsome felines to the cause.

Many of these cats have pedigrees which date back hundreds of years. In fact, the family tree of most aristocratic human beings is a mere shrub compared to the genealogy of some exquisite cats, whose ancestry dates back to the first Persian rulers. Los Angeles boasts of some of the finest, and competent Judges of Southern California say that they compare favorably with any cats in the world.

Officers of the Cat dub are: Mrs. J.C. Girton, president; Mrs. N. Rogers Stone, vice-president; J.C. Girton, secretary; J.W. Searle, treasurer; miss Ruby Searle, corresponding secretary. The show committee is made up of Mrs. N. Rogers Stone, Mrs. Fred Maier, Mrs. Blakeslee, Miss Lotta Jay, Mrs. J. W. Searle, Mrs. G.H. Kriechbaum. Acting as Reception Committee are Mrs. O.H. Burbridge, Mrs/ W.L. Wolfe, Mrs. George Johnson and Mrs. Fred Maier. The personnel of the Decorating Committee includes: Mrs. Fred Maier, Mrs. J.C. Girton, Mrs. O.H. Burbridge, Mrs. W.L. Wolfe and Miss Jay. The directors are J.C. Girton, Dr. G.H. Kriechbaum, Dr. Chester Magee and J.W. Searle.

Many prizes have been donated for the show. Those offered include: Silver cup from Mrs. Fred Maier for best cat in show; silver cup from Mrs. J.C. Girton for best blue-eyed male (long-hair), silver cup from Pacific Fancier for largest long-haired exhibit; hand-painted plate from Mrs. George Utley for best orange-eyed female white (long-haired;) water-color painting from Dr. J. Barton for best odd-eyed female white (long-haired;) Woman’s Home Companion from Cromwell Publishing Company for best long-haired cat exhibited by a young lady; silver bouillon spoon from Miss E. Horne for best tortoise-shell female (long;) box crystallized fruit from J.R. Newberry for best orange neuter (long-haired;) silver teaspoon from Mrs. J.C.

PUSSY PUFFS UP PROUDLY – Los Angeles Times, 18th January, 1906
The day before the cat show, the feline aristocracy of Los Angeles was assembling in the bowling alley of the Chutes. Great, fluffy Angoras with long hair that would shame the very snow itself for whiteness, black beauties with orange eyes and proud mien, coy misses which looked out from their cages with engaging shyness, petted darlings that eat only of cream and beefsteak, and every variety of pussy, even to the terror of the woods, the wildcat, Bengal, with the lithe grace and tread of the tiger.

Indeed, the cats were going some yesterday, and very few complained of their strange quarters and many spectators, though they were exceedingly nervous, as high-bred people frequently are, when preparing for display.

The cat show, which will open today, is the first in Southern California, and the majority of the cats entered are in the novice class, though that did not depress their spirits in the least, for they are pedigreed, every one, and some of the grandfathers have taken as many as six or seven silver cups apiece. A few of the cats, especially some from the kennel of the president of the Cat Club, Mrs. Girton have won honors in the shows in Chicago.

Among the early arrivals was one of the haughtiest of aristocrats, King Cole, belonging to Mrs. M. E. Goodrich of Westlake avenue. Black as the night, with magnificent length of body and feline development, despising all food save cream and beefsteak this royal personage is truly impressive when he turns the light of his orange eyes upon you. They just match the orange bow his mistress has adorned him with, and he is to have an orange pillow to lie on. He is a perfect demon in disposition to everybody but to me, said Mrs. Goodrich, with a proud look of possession.

Prince Charming is a different sort. Even the camera could not ruffle his placid spirits. Possibly he is so beautiful that it makes him content. A glorious angora white he is, and his eyes are as blue as the California sky. Oh, he is very much worthwhile. He is only a year old, and may grow larger; he cannot grow more beautiful. Mrs. E. A. Wright owns him. Prince Charming” is accomplished, too. He plays polo with walnuts. He is a grandson of the celebrated Paris whence came his beauty.

Among the kittens (but you would have never known these high-bred pussies for kittens, they are so large and handsome) is a chinchilla, who came from the kennels of Mrs. Girton.

Mrs. George C. Johnson of Pasadena avenue brought several of her treasures among the first. Rowdy and Prince II, are brothers, white Angoras, one with blue eyes and the other with amber, and oh, such pretty creatures! Another cat beauty belonging to Mrs Johnson is Silvertips, seven months old, his fur having a silver tinge. Silvertips is one cat well supplied with grandfathers. He is Scotch in the main, for his immediate grandfather was Angus, winner of seven sliver cups, and the property of F. B. Story of Chicago. His great-grandfather was the great champion, Hamish, who won eight sliver cups in London and Chicago.

The blue angora, Major, is of the same ancestry and his mother was from the kennels of the woman In San Francisco who left a fortune for the support of fine felines.

Did you know that Manx cats have no tails? They look as though they have an interesting history, but would not deign to tell anyone about the way the whole race of Manx cats lost their tails. Tom and Jerry are Manx cats who came early yesterday so as not to miss anything. They are trick cats and can do a number of clever stunts. Their father was Black Prince and their mother is still living. Her name is Tootsie. These black boys belong to Miss Adeline Chandler. Jerry can do the highest jump of any cat In Los Angeles.

The magnificent wild cat, Bengal, is in a class all by himself. He scorns to compete for paltry prizes and is there for people to have the privilege of looking at him. In seeing him one is tempted to transpose an old Baying to "A king may look upon a cat,” Instead of "'A cat may look upon a king.”

Mrs. H. A. Stearns owns this bob cat. He was reared in captivity and is quite a pet In the household. Live guinea pigs and an occasional chicken furnish him with dainties, while plain meat is his steady diet. He was accompanied by a guinea pig when he arrived at the Chutes, his way of carrying supplies. His mistress walks about with him, keeping tab on his movements with a slender chain. One can take up the velvet paws of this beast and grow quite familiar with him, wondering all the while to see him so tame.

Miss Stearns’s tabby angora, Adonis, came to the show yesterday as well as another beautiful tabby angora belonging to Mrs. W.L. Wolfe, whose name is King, and who is the son of the famous Mascot.

The dainty little Duchess was quite the high-born lady when it came to having her picture taken. She is a white angora with seal-brown markings, and she looks as though she wore overalls. She is the property of Mrs. C. S. Track.

A lovely silver-gray angora is Wynwyn, belonging to Mrs. Henry Stanley Bent, and among the other beauties already installed is a tortoise-shell kitten, and several exquisite maltese specimens. Mrs. G. H. Krichbaum had a splendid half-breed maltese which arrived contented and happy. Dr. Krlchbaum, by the way, has added two fine silver cups to the number to be awarded.

Many other arrivals are expected this morning, and the outlook for a great cat show is very gratifying-.

CATS CONGRESS IS IN SESSION; DARLINGS ADMIRED BY CROWDS – Los Angeles Herald, 19th January, 1906
Me-ow! Me-ow!! Me-ow!!! Purr-r-r-r- Purr-r-r-r- Out upon the air floated the strains of the cut chorus, faint, and then with a volume of sound as Tabbie echoed the call of Tom. It was the opening of the cat convention — the first annual meeting in Lob Angeles and the aristocrats of the hearth rug were exchanging greetings.

From out the Chutes bowling alley, which the cats have turned into a convention hull, the echo penetrated, drowning even the noise of the pattering rain. Through puddles of muddy water the mere humans whose duty it is to serve the inhabitants of catdom paddled. Once inside they were oblivious to muddy skirts, oblivious to wet shoes and oblivious to all save cats.

"Isn't that the most beautiful thing you ever saw,” came from one corner of the room.

"I would just like to take you up in my arms and squeeze you, cunnin’ little ball of fur,” was a remark addressed to a large white Angora with blue eyes and — so the owner said — perfect hearing.

“Now what do you think of that, perfect hearing — just as If anyone ever heard of a cat with anything but perfect hearing,” said the uninitiated one, but that is Just the case. “If an Angora has two blue eyes it very seldom has perfect hearing,” the cat fancier will tell you.

The kitten did not look at all afraid its admirer would carry out the threat of squeezing it, as a wire door fastened with a forbidding looking padlock was between them. The Angora gave one disdainful look and settled down into the soft folds of a beautiful blue pillow.

And the style of the cats! They were more conceited than any humans that ever lived. Each had a nice, neat little house in which it was ruler of all it surveyed. Each had a beautiful pillow of the color most becoming to its style of beauty.
For the white cats with blue eyes there were blue pillows and bows of beautiful blue satin ribbon. For white ones with dark eyes there were pink silk pillows. One handsome blue Persian just arrived from Chicago to be an inmate of the "Blue Eyed Kennels" rested on a yellow silk pillow. Now what cat fanciers call blue would be to ordinary mortals who like cats, but know little of their fine points, a mouse colored cat, so it is easy to see why yellow was so becoming.

There were cats to the right of one and cats to the left of one. There were cats in front of one and cats in back of one, and each was a cat worth more than a passing glance. Interested visitors strolled from one cage to another, taking in the outward beauties.

A group of busy judges paused long before each cage, taking in the fine points of each animal. They were looked at from a distance and they were looked at near at hand, then they were taken from the coops and examined in the difficult task of deciding just whose pet is the best pet. Their tails were measured and at times the cats really looked as if they were there to show off and the way they strutted around the cages would have done credit to a flock of peacocks.

In one cage there was the pet of Mrs. Fred Meyer. "Blue Bonnie” is its name and it is a blue Angara with a very long pedigree. "Blue Bonnie” is indeed a pampered pet and its cage is padded throughout with soft blue silk. The box is divided by a screen into two separate apartments, and the big cat spends most of its time on a soft, blue pillow.

"Wee McGregor” Is a tiny Persian Angora kitten with very long hair of a beautiful blue color, which never moved from its easy place in a small Indian basket all day. The basket was no larger than a hat, but the kitten seemed to think it the most comfortable place in the cage. The kitten utterly disdained the pillow and even cream and beefsteak could not induce it from the basket.

At one end of the room was a large cage with a big gray and black house cat in it. Mike is its name and its mistress said he is nothing but a house cat, but he is very nice. Mike is a cat without a country. The animal was born on board a German liner when the boat, was within one day's Journey of New York. Mike’s mother was a Bavarian cat and belonged to a little German girl. When the child's family sailed for America she cried for her cat and that is the way “Mike” became a cat without a country. Mike's life has been rather a remarkable one and only one of the achievements to the animal’s credit is the bringing up of a flock of nine turkeys deserted by the hen which hatched them. Mike stayed in the basket with them day and night until the little things were big enough to no longer need a "mother.”

Mrs. Girton, president of the Los Angeles Cat club and one of the Chief workers In the cat show, shows many beautiful cats from the “Blue Eyed Kennels.” Her cats are nearly all the long-haired white Angoras with blue eyes and perfect hearing. One of them has a tail with a spread of sixteen inches across.

Blue Eyed Prince, a male who received first prize at the San Diego cat show, is one which she has entered, and Lady Blue Eyes is the charming companion. True Blue, another of Mrs. Girton's cats, has an especial fondness for pink and is the only one from the kennel which has a pink pillow. Mr. and Mrs. F. D. Hogoboom have a beautiful white Angora pet from the Chicago feline aristocracy. Chicago has furnished many cats to Southern California and visitors to the cat show yesterday declared the show to be the best ever given west of that city.

Bengal, a magnificent wildcat [bobcat], who is in a class all its own, is attracting much attention. Bengal is the only one not caged. The animal sits upon a pedestal, receiving with condescending grace all who come to pay court. Bengal is the property of Mrs. H. A. Stearns and is as much of a house pet as any cat whose ancestors have all been domesticated.

The Duchess, a white Angora with brown markings, is another little lady of high degree.

Mrs. E. A. Wright’s "Prince Charming” is a cat worth knowing. It is an especially beautiful Angora. Two Manx cats, Tom and Jerry, the Pets of Miss Adeline Chandler, attracted much attention. These animals have no tails and it appears that until yesterday there were a great many people in Los Angeles who knew nothing of cats without tails. They have pedigrees, though, and do not seem to be the least disturbed over the lack of the other article.

King Cole, belonging to Mrs. H. E. Goodrich of Westlake avenue, is a splendid specimen of feline beauty and the prince never hesitates to reject all food save beefsteak and cream.

There are more than a hundred cats in all and the managers of the show had a busy time yesterday finding cages for all of them. Today will be society day and this afternoon women interested in cats will serve tea when the kittens can spare them for a few moments. Tomorrow afternoon the children will be given first attention and some of the trick cats will perform for their benefit.

The work of the judges was begun yesterday, but will probably not be completed until this evening. In addition to the ribbons which the cat club awards, there are many handsome cups and other prizes offered.

BULL DOGS FOILED IN ATTEMPT TO FEAST ON PRIZE CAT MEAT. INVASION OF CANINES NEARLY CAUSES PANIC – Los Angeles Herald, 20th January, 1906
Few of the owners of pedigreed cats who are reveling in the joys of their first show at Chutes park know how near their pets came to annihilation yesterday afternoon. Had it not been for the foresight of leading officials who were standing near the entrance to the bowling alley where the exhibit is being held, a panic could not have been averted. As a red rag is to a bull, as a Russian is to a Jap, as the board of public works is to the council, so is a cat to a bulldog. It makes no difference to a bulldog whether the cast comes from the “Blue- eyed kennels” and has a fancy price of $1000 attached to him or is a common barnyard cat that can’t be given away. It makes no difference if it be an Angora with two blue eyes and perfect hearing or a blue Persian with orange eyes — a cat is a cat as far as a bulldog can see or smell.

Adolph Jahnke, proprietor of the Chutes cafe, next to the bowling alley, has two splendid dogs — Prince, a blue ribbon bulldog with several first prizes to his credit, and Teddy, an equally high bred Boston terrier. The dogs have been chained in the rear of the cafe and ever since the first cat made its appearance have been tugging at the chains and trying in every way to break them. Every effort to reconcile the two animals to so much cat has failed and yesterday when their keeper loosed their chains for a moment the dogs made a dash for the bowling alley.

Straight for the door they ran, almost knocking down a little girl who was also bound for the cat show. Past the Igorrote village with its “twenty- five wild dog eaters,” all hungry for dog, the canines went with never a pause. At the entrance to the show they encountered the doorkeeper, whose business it is to secure tickets from all who enter. Prince and Teddy, autocrats that they are, waived the formality of showing tickets and bolted past with no thought in their mind but cat, cat, cat.

in hot pursuit followed their keeper and behind him came Mrs. Jahnke, the dogs’ mistress. Just behind the door, as the bulldog and his equally anxious companion were within a few feet of their prey, the keeper made a wild dash for the chain which tied them together, and with a mighty effort succeeded in holding them back.

“Oh, the cat!” “Our pets!” “Those awful dogs! Take them away; take them away!” came from the women who were near the entrance.

The building was crowded with men, women and children who had come to admire the cats. In the farthest end of the hall J. C. Girton, general manager of the show, was exhibiting cats and giving a lecture on the various fine points. At a glance he saw what had caused the commotion and he also saw that the dogs had been caught. With much presence of mind he went on with his lecture and succeeded in keeping the attention of the crowd so that only those near the door knew of the disturbance.

A white Persian Angora was the first cat to catch sight of the dogs. Every hair in her body went up until she looked like a snow mountain. Her tail assumed enormous proportions and from a peaceful little ball of white she was changed to a veritable demon, snarling and spitting. She passed the word along the line to the cast nearest her and a general chorus of “Me-ow, me-ow” went up. With each sound made by the cats the dogs, grew more unmanageable, while the keeper was trying to pull them toward the door. Mrs. Jahnke arrived then and she succeeded in quieting the dogs.

"P-r-r-ince! P-r-r-ince!” she called. “Lie down; lie down, you c-r-r-r-azy dog!” And Prince obeyed. The keeper finally got them outside the door and then Mrs. Jahnke explained.

“P-r-r-ince is just c-r-r-azy for cats. He would just tear all these cages to pieces if he could get at them,” she said.
And no one who heard doubted her word. Every woman was quite convinced of the feeling, way down in the heart of each dog, for cat.

There was a sigh of relief when word was brought back that the dogs were securely chained again. Cream and beefsteak tenderly administered restored each little pussy to its normal condition and the show went on in quiet once more.

The cats’ convention hall presented a gala appearance yesterday afternoon. It was “society day” and cat fanciers and some who were not cat fanciers crowded the hall all day. The exhibitors decorated the temporary homes of their pets with ferns and the choicest of cut flowers. Violets enough to delight the hearts of a dozen society girls adorned the apartments occupied by “Blue Bonnie” and many of the others fared almost as well.

The cat show is a success even beyond the hope of promoters and all are jubilant over it. Even the rain has failed to dampen the enthusiasts. In all the crowd yesterday there was probably only one man who did not have a proper appreciation of cats, and he was a living example of the martyrdom of man to the whims of a maid. His companion, a handsomely gowned young woman, was enjoying the cats to her heart’s content while the man sat in a corner with a disgusted look and a copy of a Chicago paper. Is it possible that he could have come from Chicago, where cats are almost worshiped?

The judges had a busy day trying to decide which felines have the greatest number of good points, but by night their work was completed. Following is a list of awards:

Prince Blue Eyes — Blue Eyed kennels, Mrs. J. C. Girton, first prize, open class, highest score male in show.

CHILDREN ENJOY CAT SHOW – Los Angeles Herald, 21st January, 1906
Yesterday was children’s day at the cat show and all day long the bowling alley at Chutes park was crowded with interested spectators young and old. The judges completed their work of awarding special prizes and ribbons and the show is voted by all to be a splendid success. The exhibit will be continued through today on account of the rain which fell on the first day, delaying the opening of the show.

BOB-TAILED TOMS COUNTED OUT BECAUSE THIS CAT SHOW IS TO BE HIGH-TONED – The Los Angeles Times, 22nd November, 1906
The Southern California Cat Club prepared plans, last evening, for the great cat exposition to take place in Los Angeles in January. One hundred and thirty five high-priced felines have been registered by the various interested exhibitors, with Pasadena Tropico and Glendale not yet heard from. One of the acts of this august assembly was to donate a silver cup to the San Diego Dog and Cat Show, to be held also in January; another was to invite a distinguished cat judge of Chicago to come here and judge the California cats, another matter under discussion was the enforcement of laws regulating the thieving of cats, and compelling those who had abstracted or enticed desirable kitties into their possession to advertise them for a solid month in the local press, or be subject to the pains and penalties thereafter to be prescribed.

Greeting was sent by the assembled cat-lovers to the president of the club, now in Buffalo, passing on the merits of a series of short-haired cats. A hundred new coops for the cats were ordered, and a committee of ladies appointed to wait on merchants to invite them to offer prizes for the best cats, omitting all scrub mongrels, east-side parvenus, and bob-tailed alley Toms. Several new members were admitted to the privilege of the association.

After business has been performed, the assembly were entertained with refreshments by the official printer of the Cat Association, who with his wife responded nobly to the important responsibility laid upon him. All this serves to accelerate what in destining is unavoidable, to wit, that Los Angeles is to be the cat center of the United States, having more cats and more expensive cats to the square mile than any other city in the country. In the opinion of the members of the Cat Association this is desirable.

[1907] CAT SHOW WORSE THAN “JIM JAMS” - Los Angeles Herald, Friday Morning, January 18, 1907.
Society evidently refuses to wet its dainty feet even for fair charity, plus a cat show. The management of the Chutes park exhibition of choice felines found this out yesterday to their regret, but a good cause dies hard, and if the weather man tries to balk them they will continue their show till he has to bring out the sun. Present plans are to continue the show Sunday night, and possibly till Monday.

Visitors who failed to take in the show yesterday may miss some of the interesting features. A pair of rabbit cats bred by Frank T. Cantara are another freak exhibit of the show. These strange creatures have the haunches of a rabbit and the short stubby tail of that animal, but their bodies and heads are those of a cat. At places on their bodies the cat hair gives place to rabbit fur. These strange quadrupeds hop about like a rabbit and eat grass. Mr. Cantara produced them by crossing a male rabbit and a female cat. The original litter contained seven little ones, but Jack and Tootsie are the only ones left.

In the line of real cats, Mrs. Cora Weston, who has exhibits Nos. 1 and 2, has two of the prettiest cats in the show. Her Babe Alice, a blue cat with orange eyes, is a daughter of the famous Black Mawcot. The other is Buster White, a hearty, fat, well grown kitten 9 months old and weighing ten pounds. His mistress’ eyes sparkled as she showed off his good points and explained what a great eater he is. Buster is a very fine pussy and expects to leave the show with a blue ribbon around his snowy white neck.

Mrs. E. Goodrich has as her entry Buster Brown, an orange tabby who is the son of the old prize winner, Robin Adair. Hans, a 2-year-old silver cat, and the white angora, Princess, which is 6 years old, are the entries of Mrs. J. J. Walter. Jim, a 7-months-old kitten belonging to H. A. Carriel, is making his initial bow in the show line. This pussy has pure amber eyes, which place him almost in a class by himself. Jim’s master is confident that James will bring home the bacon this week.

Mrs. J. C. Girton’s showing of fine pussies is one of the best as well as the largest in the show. It embraces King Cupid, a blue-eyed white angora cat with perfect hearing. This feline won the cup for being the best cat at the San Diego show. Lady Jewel won first in her class at the same exhibition. Then there are Princess, the mother of California True Blue; Li Hu Chung, a female Siamese champion from ’way back, champion Prince Blue Eyes and Trouble, a pussy with one yellow eye and one blue one. This cat made the highest scoring in last year’s show, scoring 99 and three-quarter points out of a possible 100, and taking the silver cup.

Another famous cat is Lady Blue Eyes, known as the club cat. The picture of this pretty pussy appears on all the club literature, and her owners have renounced all claims to the advertising of her over to the club.

[1907] NEW CAT CLUB WILL HOLD ITS INITIAL SHOW – Los Angeles Herald, Sunday Morning, February 17, 1907. By Howard H. Krueger.
Once again society will kowtow to the swelldom of pussy land With the cat show opening Thursday aristocratic cats all over the city are being washed, combed and groomed for the coming contest when they will prove their superiority by capturing the blue ribbons and specials offered by the Los Angeles National Cat Club at this, its first annual show.

Chutes park auditorium, the local “Crystal Palace," which is becoming well known as the meeting place for bird and beast, will have the honor of housing the coming display of choice felines, the choicest ever gathered together in this city, the promotors say.

When the doors open for the opening night Thursday, visitors will be introduced to a fairyland glittering with bright lights and resplendent In the club colors, orange and light blue. From the stage a guitar, mandolin and harp will discourse sweet music while the cats do likewise. The inner man — and woman — will be taken care of by menus of light refreshments which will be served by the club.

The cats will, however, be the “piece do resistance." One hundred and fifty of them, cats large, cats small; cats long and cats short; cats wild, others tame; cats with green eyes, blue eyes, orange eyes and variegated eyes will gaze with unblinking serenity at the hundred of gay society leaders who will turn out on the three days of the show to do them homage. But above all else, the cats exhibited will be society cats. True, kennel cats will be made cordially welcome, but the aim of the Los Angeles Cat club Is first and foremost to introduce the blue blooded pussies into competition for the sake of sport and not to advertise private kennels. Every one interested in the genus felis from a sportsmanlike view will be welcome to enter his kitty, but the high bred society cat that sleeps on velvet cushions and would not know what to do with a mouse if she caught one — such is the cat desired particularly.

That the management has attained to this end is shown by the list of entries. First in prominence, as in worth, will be Mrs. Leland Norton's "Royal Norton," a cat so well bred he will not even enter into competition with the other pussies. Then, too, Mrs. A. C. Harper will enter her smoked geldings; Mrs. George A. Mahary of Altadena will show “Blue Fritz,” the finest blue gelding in the country; Mrs. H.A. Lovell, whose kennels at Pasadena are among the best equipped in the country, will have a choice showing of creams; Miss Dalrymple's silver tabby, “Bonnie Blue," will repose in state on a pink satin. This pussy is the largest of his kind in the city. Although but 18 months old he weighs twenty pounds.

Mrs. J. W. Suris will enter her collection of brown tabbies which rank high in the social scale of the feline world. The beautiful Persian cats will be well represented, their number including several choice specimens belonging to Mrs. N.J. Fulks and others of Mrs. Jessie Reynolds Girling.

In freak eats the coming show will be not a whit behind any others. A pair of African boo-bo cats with seven toes on each foot will add to the bewilderment created by blue cats with orange eyes. These foreign visitors' are the property of Mrs. W. Stoddard.

Mrs. A.H. Sterns will have on exhibition at least two of her three tamed wild cats. These cats, although the blood of wild ancestors flows in their veins, are as docile as the ordinary tomcat of the back yard. Indeed, so tame have they become the baby of the family plays with one of them, carrying it “by the stem” or in any other convenient fashion. Three Bengalore cats from India will add an oriental atmosphere to their corner of the show. These creatures differ from the ordinary house cat and resemble the pig in that their tails, instead of hanging like a true cat's, curl like a pig’s tail.

With such a conglomeration of feline flesh to choose from the road of the judge will necessarily be a stony one, and an official of keen discernment will be required. Cat show officials feel they have secured such a man in the person of T. Farrar Rackham of Boston. Mr. Rackham is connected with the Spratt company, and what he does not know about cats, dogs and animals generally it is said could be put into a vest pocket hand book, with room enough left for a table of weights and measures.

The prizes to be distributed will tax the hudges’ powers to the utmost. After awarding the ribbons to the best pussies he will have only begun his work. A long list of special prizes will then have to be distributed among the felines, from the homeliest to the finest.

Among the thirteen cups to be awarded, the most coveted will be the Los Angeles National Cat club silver challenge cup. This magnificent trophy will become the temporary property of the best cat in the show, but must be won three times by the same cat before it becomes the indisputable possession of the fortunate pussy. [next section is too damaged to read]

[. . .] best orange eyed blue female will make of the order for a pair of shows which she will win. The orange and blue combination sounds more like the after effects of a stein party, and the weary wayfarer may think that the stein offered by the Owl Drug company should go to the “jams” combination; but, instead, the homeliest cat in the show will get the beer mug. H.M. Sale offers a silver spoon for the youngest litter of kittens shown. The kittens will have to take turns using the spoon. The best black male will become the owner of a handsome silver berry bowl, and other prizes by the dozen will make other cats’ mistresses happy.

The coming show is the first one to be held by the Los Angeles National Cat club since the organisation came into being last June. The exhibition will be annual and open to all cat owners who wish to participate in a sportsmanly show. The seventy members number many prominent society folk, and their aim will be to make the cat show a social function on a par with the horse show.

Associated with their elders in the coming show is the Children’s Cat club, an auxiliary organization of the younger generation, who are being brought up in the way they should go when approaching a cat. While the primary aim of the younger body is to come to a realization of the excellencies of the cat und to a fuller appreciation of its feelings on the subject of cat baiting, the children will also enter several cats of their own. A section of the show room will be devoted to their pussies, and the felines will be given ribbons and special prizes to gladden the hearts of their young masters and mistresses.

According to present plans, the cats will be on show Thursday, Friday and Saturday, though if the attendance demands the exhibition may be continued for another day or two.

WAS NOT ALWAYS A SOCIETY CAT - ONE PET AT FELINE SHOW HAS A PAST. Los Angeles Herald, 23rd February, 1907
In a lonely corner of the Los Angeles National Cat club's show in Chutes Park sits Enid Anstruhler. Enid is only a short haired black cat of no particular merit except her good blood which will not be downed; but this pussy’s blinking eyes have gazed upon a hard and rocky road. In the short years of her life Enid bas learned the ropes pretty thoroughly, and many a time and oft has she known what it is to strike the free lunch or garbage can, for Enid has not always been a society cat. A kind fate gave her for sire and dam two cats of blue blood, but whether she was born to the purple or amid the tin cans of some garbage dump no one can tell. The early years of her life are shrouded in mystery.

Enid's history begins a trifle less than a year back. When San Francisco was devastated, from the northern city came a family who brought with them their little daughter, Miss Anstruhler. One day after the family had become settled in their southern home, the little maid spied a dirty nondescript cat wandering hungrily around the back alley. She brought the half-starved brute into the house, gave it a bath and n saucer of warm milk, and christened it Enid Anstruhler. This was the beginning of life for Enid. Since then the world had been one long drawn out dream of milk and pettings.

When the first cat show of the year opened at Chutes last month, Miss Anstruhler, without bothering the rest of the family about the affair, took her pet under her arm and entered it at the show. Without any special grooming Enid proved her gratefulness for past favors by taking the second prize in her class. In the present show the little owner expects her pet to take at least first prize.

Last night Enid was striving heroically to plume herself for the fray by licking herself clean. A large blue bow of ribbon Impeded her somewhat, but she persevered, and after cleaning her fur, began to lick the bow clean.

The prise for the youngest kittens in the show will go to a litter from the Rural kennels. The dam, Dottie, reposed in a large lace lined blanket surrounded by a litter of kittens which are only ten days old.

The work of judging the 150 or more cats has proven great, and Mrs. Leland Norton, who has undertaken the task, will not be able to complete it before tonight. The ribbons on white long haired cats and several of the smaller entries have been awarded, but many more remain.

* * *

THE CAT SHOW ALSO OPENED TODAY. The Los Angeles Herald, September 2nd, 1908.
Many fine animals are entered, an interesting one being an Australian cat which was washed overboard in the Golden Gate, San Francisco, and was rescued by Mrs. J. J. Osmar of Long Beach, after the cat swam a mile, Mrs. Leland Norton of Los Angeles is to judge all the cats.

CAT AND POULTRY SHOWS – Los Angeles Herald, September 4th, 1908.

ARISTOCRATIC CATS WORTH THOUSANDS – Oakland Tribune, October 17, 1908
PACIFIC GROVE — Ten thousand dollars worth of cats are contending for honors and cups at the first annual show of the Del Monte Cat Club, of which Miss Gertrude Blaine is superintendent. Mrs. Leland Norton will judge the cats, which are of every breed, color, age, size and price, some Persians or Angoras, running up to the value of $500, and one enormous white gelding weighing 26 pounds. Another animal of proud pedigree is Princess Victoria, with a litter of five kittens, sired by Otto Bey, winner of twenty-one prize medals in England. The principal exhibitors are women from San Francisco. Los Angeles, San Jose and Watsonville, and today the animals will be put through their various tricks and paces.

[1909] PSYCHE GETS CHALLENGE CUP PRIZE. CAT BELONGING TO DR AVERY IS CHAMPION OF LOS ANGELES SHOW. – Oxnard Courier, December 10, 1909.
Wins Many Ribbons and Championship Ribbon, Having More Than Necessary Ten Points.
When the cat show of the Los Angeles Cat Club came to an end Saturday, it was discovered that "Psyche,” the handsome tortoiseshell cat belonging to Dr. Avery, had carried off the championship ribbon of the show, being winner of the handsome challenge cup and of half a dozen ribbons for various special qualifications. The news came as a surprise to Dr. Avery, who hardly expected that the cat would get more than the three prizes originally bestowed upon it, but at the final inspection the committee in charge donated all sorts of prizes to it and before the show was over the cat had the ten points and more than are necessary in order to become, a prize winning cat.

Already the fame of the cat has spread about and yesterday the doctor was in receipt of a telegram asking him to enter the cat in the big show that comes off in San Francisco in the near future. Dr. Avery will not go to the trouble of taking the animal north, however, having won many more prizes than he expected at this show. He will take “Psyche” down to Los Angeles and enter him against the record breaking cat, “King Cupid,” at a show that will be held in Los Angeles in the near future, and according to some reports his cat has a good chance to wrest the championship from the present prize winner. "King Cupid” has won more championships in this state than any other cat ever did, but the doctor believes that his cat will make the other one look sick — maybe. “Psyche” is an extraordinary handsome feline of many colored fur and big lustrous, opalescent eyes, and a peculiar pug nose like that of a pug dog. It also possesses quite short legs and a short but very furry tail. These two latter qualities and his unusual pug nose won for him special ribbons.

OAKLAND, CALIFORNIA

WILL EXHIBIT PETS AT OAKLAND’S SHOW – San Francisco Chronicle, November 26, 1900
OAKLAND, November 25. — From present indications, this year’s exhibition of the Oakland Poultry Association promises to excel any similar show ever held in the West. The entries in the several departments closed last night and are larger than last year, when the extent of the show caused wonderment. [. . .] The exhibition will also include a cat show, under the auspices of the California Cat Club, with C. C. Taylor as manager. An Interesting feature will be the competition among tradesmen, prizes having been offered for the best cats exhibited by business houses.

THE CAT SHOW - Oakland Tribune, November 28, 1900
The cat show will be the first to be held on the Coast, and it will be a very interesting feature in itself. In addition to a great number of fine Angora and other long-haired specimens there will be a lively competition among the tradesmen’s cats. Many valuable pets will be shown in this department, several having been but recently imported expressly for this show.

PEDIGREED PUSSIES WILL BE PLACED ON DISPLAY – Oakland Tribune, 20th November, 1910
Proud and pedigreed pussies of every variety will be seen in feline glory at the first annual cat show of the California Cat Club, which will be held on the mezzanine floor of the Braley-Grote buildingiIn this city November 29 and 30. Pussies with long and silky hair, blue, black, orange and white; likewise tortoise shell and brown tabby, smoke and silver, will be there, and short-haired cats of many nations, Siamese, Manx, Russian and Abyssinian — more kinds and colors of cats than you ever imagined existed, unless you're an exhibitor of cats yourself.

Little round fuzzy balls of kittens, and grown-up dignified long haired cats, and veterans of many shows — they all will be present in well-groomed perfection. And trophies! Over fifty cups and awards for the prize-winners in the different classes. Lebnhardt’s window will be full of them Wednesday morning, when they will be put on exhibition. At least a hundred and fifty entries are expected to be made before the list of entries closes next Saturday night. New cages have been built at heavy expense to house the feline beauties, for nothing is too good for the aristocrats of catdom, according to the members of the club.

Mrs. Irene De Witt Martin, a Chicago society woman, who is here for a short time, will judge the prize-winning pussies. Mrs. Martin was the Judge of the Pacific Cat Club’s show in San Francisco in 1903.

Many fine cats are owned by the club members, and several good-sized kennels are located in this city, Mrs. E. S. Warren, the president of the club, is the owner of the Nob Hill kennels at Hayward, the home of Bob C, à prize-winner of last year at the Pacific Cat Club show, and Mrs. A. E. Montgomery of Claremont has at her Oakridge kennels champion Johnny Fawe II., the finest black cat in America. A. J. Oliver, owner of the Golden Gate kennels, is the proud possessor of several trophy-winners. C. H. Congdon, Jr., Mrs. Lina Mooney, Mrs. Edith M. Davis, and Mrs. J. L. Renner are also the owners of some very fine specimens. Mrs. Frank Baker, the secretary of the club, has at her City Hall kennels Trophy and Ophelia, an unusual pair of reds of remarkably beautiful color, besides a number of other winners.

The membership roll of the club is now about eighty. It was organized a year ago next January. Its most active members are Mrs. Frank Baker and Mrs. E. S. Warren, and to them must the credit of the coming show be given, as they have been responsible for all the arrangements, with the valued assistance of A. J. Oliver.

The use of the Braley-Grote building has been donated to the club by the Braley-Grote company, with the sanction of Mayor Frank Mott, for the two days of the exhibition. The club is very grateful for this kindness, as the expenses of the show will amount to $700 at least without the additional item of rent. One of the stars of the show will be the trick cat, “Mike.” owned by Mrs. Fred L. Slemmons of 672 Twenty-first street. "Mike” is a short-haired Maltese, with an extensive repertoire of twelve tricks, which places him high in the list of accomplished felines.

SAN FRANCISCO

THE PACIFIC BENCH SHOW. San Francisco. In one cage a lady has placed her pet kioodle and in the same apartment is a Tabitha cat. The lady tearfully told [the reporter] that they were on such terms of friendship at home that she could not bear to have them separated, and hence she brought them both. The managers protested that this was not a cat show and tried to send away the feline, but the lady wouldn't have it that way, and so it remains, one solitary cat among seven hundred dogs, all but one thirsting for blood ; but Tabitha views her surroundings with the utmost nonchalance and takes her meals regularly. – Oakland Tribune, October 31, 1877

WILL BE A CAT AND DOG SHOW – The San Francisco Call, April 23, 1897.
Felines Will Have a Place at the Coming Exhibition. Many Fanciers Who Have Thoroughbreds Have Already Entered. Special Prizes and Gold Medals Will Be Given and a Splendid Exhibition Is Assured.
Oakland Office San Francisco Call, 908 Broadway, April 22nd: Always striving for something original, Oakland has now decided that she will have a cat show with her dog show. At the last meeting of the club it was definitely decided that pussy should have a chance to exhibit her wool and purring abilities, as well as the bowwows. No entry fee will be charged exhibitors of cats, and the only expense to which the owners will be put is that of benching and feeding.

In this State, more so than in many other, there are people who have made a specialty of breeding cats, and they own many valuable Angoras and Maltese. It has been decided to give them an opportunity to show their pets, and prizes will be awarded to the lucky ones. Dr. Fred Pierce, the city veterinary surgeon, will be judge of the cats, and in this line he is well known all over the country at a very efficient arbiter.

The bench show will open the second week of next month at the Exposition building. It is attracting as much attention all over the State among owners of thoroughbred dogs as the show of the San Francisco Bench Club. In this city there are many prominent dog-fanciers and they will put all their pets on exhibition. [. . .] Among the cats will be some fine animals imported from Europe, and one exhibitor has entered twelve Angoras of remarkable beauty. No ordinary house cats will be accepted, as all animals must be thoroughbred to secure recognition.

[1902]The Pacific Cat Club will also hold its annual cat show in conjunction with the carnival. Nearly 100 cats have been entered.- Oakland Tribune, February 4th, 1902

SUCCESS CROWNS EFFORTS OF KENNEL CLUB – San Francisco Chronicle, 24th April, 1903
Outside of the continued interest in the dogs, to-day will be a red-letter occasion, because the first real cat show in this city will open in the upper gallery. The Maltese, Angora, Tiger, and the all sorts of feline beauties, will have to be benched by 10 o’clock, and the judging will commence in the afternoon. There are sixty-six entries. A feature will be the serving of a luncheon by the ladies in charge, the proceeds of which will go into the treasury of the Cut Club. A number of the bull terrier dogs have heard about the cats, and last evening they were having a long consultation as to ways and means by which they could reach them.

KENNEL CLUB CLOSES SUCCESSFUL EXHIBITION

[DOG AND CAT SHOW]– The Oakland Tribune, 9th April, 1903
The cat show which will take place during the last two days of the dog show in San Francisco this month is attracting considerable interest and there are a large number of entries. The only Siamese made on the coast will be among those benched. It is an exceptionally fine specimen of that very rare breed.

BIG CROWDS ATTEND DOG [AND CAT] SHOW – The Oakland Tribune, 24th April, 1903
The Mechanics’ Pavilion in San Francisco was crowded with spectators all day yesterday at the dog show, and for the first time in the history of the Kennel Club the members will not have to dig to make up a deficit. The attendance at the first day was large, but yesterday the attendance eclipsed all expectations [. . .] By 10 o’clock this morning some sixty handsome cats were benched and the judging is taking place this afternoon. There are felines of every description, both great and small. Prominent among the kinds on exhibition are Maltese, Angora and Tigers. This is the first cat show ever held in San Francisco and it has aroused considerable interest.

HIGH-BRED CATS NOW CENTER OF ATTRACTION – San Francisco Chronicle, 25th April, 1903
Attention at the Kennel Club Show Has Shifted to the Upper Gallery.
Blue-blooded beauties at the dog and cat show brought out thousands of people yesterday, the Pavilion being crowded from early until late. Interest was divided between dogs of degree on the main floor with the cats of pedigree safely and lovingly caged in the old art gallery. The venture of the Pacific Cat Club to hold an exhibition in conjunction with the San Francisco Kennel Club has been rewarded with generous patronage. Interest in the pussies was quite as keen as that in the dogs.

[. . .]Although the cat show is such a signal success, it opened with a tragic death – that of a royal Siamese young cat owned by Mr. and Mrs. A.H. Hoag. It was frightened to death. Mrs. Hoag, who has an enviable collection of these shaded brown, velvet-eared cats, was on time with her baskets. One by one she transferred the rare cats from their travelling baskets to the wire cages, and all went well until she came to the doomed cat. She took the terrified little creature out tenderly, but it gave one look at the strange surroundings, and, gasping, died almost instantly. Everything was done to resuscitate the valuable feline, but nothing availed. The little cat had never been out, and was frightened, after the manner of cats, for all time; but it is a mystery to those who owned the pet how she disposed of her other eight lives. One strange death after another has taken the progenitors of the victim of fright. The mother and father were brought out of Siam surreptitiously, as they must be, as there is an edict in the kingdom regarding them. Yesterday’s tragedy takes off the last limb of the family cat tree in this country.

Mrs. Hoag shows three other Siamese beauties, and there are two others, one the property of Mrs. Mary Freeman and the other of Mrs. L.S. Lynch. There was a crowd around the Siamese cats all the time, because comparatively few people have seen them. They are wonderfully marked from a cream to a dark brown, with the greatest delicacy of shading, the tails and ears being as rich in tone as a seal skin. It is somewhat difficult to realize that they are really, truly cats.

On the whole, the cats behaved remarkably well. A few of them sang shed tunes, but most of them curled up on the cushions and every once and a while took the proverbial forty winks. They were all benched before noon and four hours after that Mrs. C.S. Dewitt “judged” the cats and kittens according to the now well-established rules which are almost as complete and exacting as those for dogs. Her work was not concluded last evening and will be given out tomorrow. Mrs. Christian Reis judges the Siamese.

There are white and black and red and tortoise and orange and Maltese cats; there are some with blue, others with big amber eyes, there are genuine “tabbies,” litters of Angoras and other rare breeds and finally there are some ordinary back-fence cats, entered by the president, Mrs. William A. Deane. She owns some aristocrats, but she benched three strays, one of which was thrown over her fence when it was a kitten. Each of these plebeians is the proud possessor of one kitten. Mrs. Deane contended that no show would be complete with the rovers.

The officers of the Pacific Cat Club and the conductors of the show are: President, Mrs. William A. Deane; vice-president, Mrs. George E. Bates; treasurer, Mrs. Caroline E. Hilderbrand; corresponding secretary, Mrs. Allan H. Abbott; recording secretary, Mrs. A.H. Brod; bench show committee, A.H. Abbott, A.J. Oliver, Mrs. William A. Deane, Mrs. A.H. Brod; show superintendent and secretary, Mrs. A.H. Brod; committee on general arrangements, Mrs. C.C. Reidy, Mrs. A.H. Abbott, Mrs. D.M. Heermans, Dr. Hattie Welch, Mrs. A.J. Oliver, Mrs. Kate Walters, Mrs. Caroline E Hildebrand, Mrs. George E. Bates, Mrs. H.A.L. Ryfkogel.

The ladies of the cat club are serving tea, and that, with the proceeds of a souvenir programme, will defray the expenses incurred by the show. The cats will be shown again today.

MANY ENTRIES TO COMBINATION SHOW – San Francisco Chronicle, 26th November, 1903
Aristocrats of the dog world and the worlds of feathers and fur will compete with each other for coveted blue ribbons at the “San Francisco Show,” to be held at Mechanics’ Pavilion from December 1st until 10 o'clock on the night of December 5th. The exhibition will be a combination event under the auspices of the Pacific Collie and Old English Sheep Dog Club, Oakland Poultry Association and the Cat Club, and in many respects it will overshadow any former shows held on this Coast. The cat show will be smaller [then the dog or poultry shows], but a prize will go to every exhibitor. Among others Mrs. Robert Watson will exhibit a Manx cat, the only one of its species ever brought to California.

COMBINED EXHIBIT OF DOGS, CATS AND POULTRY – San Francisco Chronicle, 4th December, 1903
With a small but goodly array of pampered tabbies stored carefully away in the far art gallery, where canine yelps are but a faint echo, the San Francisco combined dog, poultry and cat show went merrily on yesterday at Mechanics’ Pavilion. [. . .] This morning begins the Judging of cats by Mrs. N. S. Rogers-Stone of Cupertino. The task will occupy a part of the day, as the exhibit is not large in numbers. There are, however, say the cat fanciers, representatives of the Angora and the Maltese which are deserving of competition with the best specimens in the country. The tabbies make an interesting exhibit, each seated on a soft sofa cushion in a daintily decorated cage, serenely unconscious of the spectators. A large part of those who had come to see the dogs and chickens also took in the cat show up stairs, and found it worth their while.

PROSPECTS GOOD FOR DOG [AND CAT] SHOW – San Francisco Chronicle, 27th March 1904.
The officers of the San Francisco Kennel Club are delighted
with the prospects for a good show in April [. . .] The cat show, which will be large, will be held in connection with the dog show on April 15th and 16th. The cats will have their special departments in the gallery of the Pavilion. The officers of the Cat Club are Mrs. W. A. Deane, president; Mrs. George E. Bates, vice-president; Mrs. Caroline Hildebrand, treasurer; Mrs. Allen Abbott, corresponding secretary, and Mrs. A. H. Broad, superintendent and recording secretary.

DOGS AND CATS OF HIGH DEGREE TO COMPETE – San Francisco Chronicle, April 3rd, 1904
ENTRIES closed last night at midnight for the coming show of the San Francisco Kennel Club. [. . .] The Pacific Cat Club, composed of several hundred members, will hold its second exhibition of prize cats in connection with the San Francisco Kennel Club show on April, 15th and 16th. Quite a variety of handsome tabbies will be shown, and the contests for prizes are expected to be close. The several handsome specials that will be offered have added much to the interest in the exhibition. Among the large numbers of cats that will be exhibited, the white Angora or Persians are undoubtedly the most admired, but apart from those there will be many handsome cats shown. The brown, gray and orange tabbies are much fancied by lovers of the house pets. Teddie S,, owned by H. Stockton of San Jose, is said to be a beauty. Among the white beauties is the famous prize-winner Cherub, owned by Mrs. A. St. J. Oliver. He is the son of Royal Norton of the Drexel Kennels, Chicago, Among the orange and reds the most prominent is Mrs. A. H. Brod’s Jack o’ Dandy, which won first in his class at the last exhibition. Hooligan is a beautiful cream-colored animal owned by Mr. McCracken. Mrs. Hoag’s exceedingly pretty Siamese cats are much admired. They are known as the royal cat of Siam and exceedingly difficult to raise. With few exceptions all of the Siamese cats imported into this country have been smuggled. Mrs. Hoag takes pardonable pride in showing Sikh, the only Siamese male cat on this Coast.

Much is expected from Buster, an imported white Persian beauty. Of course, the largest showing will be made by the short-haired or domestic cats. Mrs. Davis of Oakland owns several handsome long-tails, which she will exhibit, prominent among which being Fritz, a winner of three specials in the last show. William Messenberg will also add to the interest of the cat show by entering some of his prise favorites. Mrs. James C. Robbins is in hopes of seeing her prize beauty, Thomas, wearing winning colors on the evening of April 16th. Among some of the cats that will be on exhibition, and which will assuredly attract more than ordinary attention, are Mrs. Deane’s and Miss Herrione’s tortoise-shell cats.

Mrs. Dewitt will again officiate as judge. Silver medals will be given to first prize winners, and bronze medals to second prize winners in all classes. The officers of the club are: Mrs. William A. Deane, president; Mrs. George E. Bates, vice-president; Mrs. Caroline E. Hilderbrand. treasurer; Mrs. Allen Abbott, corresponding secretary; Mrs. A. H. Brod, recording secretary.

Bench show committee - Mesdames Abbott, Oliver and Brod. Show superintendent and secretary - Mrs. A. H. Brod.

HIGH-CLASS DOGS IN PARADE – San Francisco Chronicle, April 17th, 1904
The eighth annual dog show of the San Francisco Kennel ended last night [. . .] The cats had their day yesterday in the upper gallery of the Mechanics’ Pavilion. Beautifully gowned women discussed all day long the merits of the different long-haired and short-haired tabbies of aristocratic lineage. One of the officers of the Pacific Cat Club said that the long-tails were not bred with the object of rat or mouse killing, and that points did not count in that direction. A cat to win prizes in a show must be broad in head, show intelligent and handsome eyes, carry a well-conditioned coat, must not be too long in leg, must have a well-feathered tall (bushy) and be of perfect shape. According to cat show rules the points of judging are as follows:

Head 10 points, eyes 15, ruff 10, coat 15, tail 15, condition 10, color 10, shape 15. Mrs. Irene Dewitt of Corning, Cal., formerly of Chicago, passed judgment on the different breeds and was particular in handing out the winning colors. Her awards gave general satisfaction. The contest between four long-haired neuters was so close that the judge reserved her decision until to-day.

The special prizes were won by the following exhibitors:

CAT ARISTOCRATS DRAW BIG CROWD. (San Francisco Chronicle, 5th December 1914)
Mother of Six and Thomases Worth $1000 Features of Sixth Annual Show. One Descendant From Tabby Raised by the Slingsby Family of England.
The Pacific Cat Club's sixth annual show opened yesterday on the fourth floor of the Emporium building. It will continue until 10 o'clock this evening. The proceeds will be given to the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. There are 171 entries. They represent cats of high and low degree, but not felines of the variety that silhouette themselves against a full moon, perched on a back fence and dodge bootjacks and slippers while they sing to their mate sulking somewhere in the immediate vicinity. These cats on exhibition are pet cats; well-behaved in company; well fed; fat and most demure, and not at all boisterous.

In that respect this cat show is different from a kennel show. At the latter the dogs do all the talking, the crowds looking on in fear and trembling. But on the fourth floor of the Emporium building a person would not know there was a cat within a mile of the place, except for placards on the wall announcing the fact, for these cats keep their thoughts to themselves. There isn't a "me-ow” from any of them. Society women and curious spectators are the talkers and the admirers.

And there are lots of cats on exhibition worth admiring, too. “Billy Bounce," a sable Persian tabby, owned by Mrs. W. H. O’Donnell, 2884 Union street, is the largest cat in the show. He weighs 23 pounds and is valued at $1000. Across the room there is another $1000 beauty, “Nella Billi III,” owned by Mrs. Jack Gordon, Thalheim. He is a long-haired blue, third removed from an original imported Persian tabby, whose ancestors were raised by the Slingsby family, London, prominent at this time because they figure in the alleged baby substitution case involving the famous Yorkshire estate.

The proudest cat on exhibition is "Babiens," a long-haired Persian who is there with her six little ones. They are owned by Mrs. K. M. Van Horne, 1249 Franklin street. Another prize winner Is “Captain Henry Roeder,” a long-haired neuter, owned by Mrs. M. L. Goodsell, 1158 Haight street. “Argent Buster,” a shaded silver male, of the long-haired variety, Persian ancestry, owned by Mrs. W. C. Lynch, 1881 O'Farroll street, was awarded a first prize by Miss Dorothy B. Champion, the New York cat expert, who is officiating as Judge. “O Rex San,” owned by Mrs. D. S. O'Brien, was also there. He won a blue ribbon and cup donated by the Western Cat Fancier at the recent Oakland show for the best black male cat.

Not the least part of the show will be Miss Joyce Olson, with her orange cat, “Joy's Shelia.” Cat owners were grooming their pets this week for the show, which Mrs Audrey Rhodehamel, manager, predicted would be one of the largest in history.

Other trophies are to be offered by Mrs. Dan Keig for the best novice opposite sex; Mrs. B, W, Wilson, best kitten opposite sex; Pacific Cat Review, best blue-eyed white male kitten; Mrs. Anna Baker, best blue novice female, and .
