I went to visit my daughter in Baton Rouge, LA for Easter weekend. The one thing she wanted to do was to go to a cat show on Saturday morning. Her friend was going as well. I think a dog show would be interesting but cats? Now don’t get me wrong we have two cats and they are like our kids to my wife and I. I have to say going was going to be interesting.
Being a photographer it was natural I wanted to take pictures. As seen in the image above I had the opportunity to get some shots. Many of the cats were kept in carriers and the owners had no real interest in talking to anyone. You can see that there some who were willing to let his or her cat out. Plus, you can see the love. I found out how difficult it was to photograph cat in a venue like this one. They do not stand still always moving. I did get lucky with this guy chilling.
The one thing that really touched my heart was seeing to cat organizations at the events showing the cats they had for adoption. They had some older cats and a few kittens. However, there was this one cat that caught my eye. I wanted to take him home. But for various reason I could not. He is pictured below.
It was still early in the day and more people were coming in. I would like to think he found a forever home. The cat show was interesting got to see a lot of different breeds. Now it was time to go to the zoo.
