The Tiger's Lair Feline Fanciers "Catch the Spirit" CFA Cat Show on Saturday at Columbia's Plaza Event Center brought in cats and owners from all over the Midwest.

COLUMBIA — As a black and white Persian cat's tail flipped over Gary Powell's Santa Claus tie, the Cat Fanciers' Association judge remarked, "You sure are pretty, aren't you?"

Powell worked alongside five others who judged about 120 cats Saturday at the Tiger's Lair Feline Fanciers "Catch the Spirit" CFA Cat Show at the Plaza Event Center.

Judges commented on the body type, eyes and playfulness of Persians, Havana Browns, Ragdolls, Russian Blues and other breeds of cats.

The show brought in cats and owners from all over the Midwest, including Illinois, Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska.

"I just like showing my cat," said Ann Fuller, secretary of the Tiger's Lair Feline Fanciers. "Win or lose, it's always fun."
