Expect wet weather in Southern California all weekend. And keep warm (and fuzzy) in the company of cats and kittens at the Arcadia Cat Show.

This is your chance to see some rare cat breeds in person, many of which look more like exotic jungle cats than domestic ones. These cats aren’t as massive like the wild beasts from the animal kingdom; so, expect the stripes of a tiger, or the spots of a leopard on domestic-sized cats. Some of the uncommon breeds present at this show include: Bengals, Toygers, Lykois, Chausies, and Savannahs.

If you already have a cat of your own this is the perfect place to shop for your furry friend.  Plenty of vendors will be supplying the best treats and cat nip. 

Don’t have a kitty at the moment, but always wanted one? Well, if you end up falling in love with the kitten, you’re covered: Hope to Home Rescue will be present at this Cat Show with cats available for adoption. The event is a 15-minute walk from the Arcadia Station on the Metro Gold Line. And there is free event parking available.

The Arcadia Cat Show runs Jan. 21 and 22, from 10 am – 4 pm each day at the Masonic Lodge in Arcadia. Admission is $4 for adults, and $3 for students with valid ID. For more information, visit the events website.
