As Time magazine said in recent story, "It seems that it's no longer just a dog's world at the Westminster Dog Show."

For the first time in the history of the 141-year Westminster Dog Show, cats shared space with dogs on New York City’s Piers 92 & 94 as they took part in this year’s AKC Meet the Breeds, an informational companion event to Westminster showcasing various dog and cat breeds. Participation in this year’s Meet the Breeds marked the return of TICA cats after a three-year hiatus from the event.

“We have heard people’s demands for the cats. And they returned,” said Brandi Hunter, a spokeswoman for the American Kennel Club.

During Meet The Breeds more, than 15,000 spectators pet and played with 39 different TICA cat breeds and household pets while mingling with enthusiasts to learn more about the history and distinct characteristics of each breed.
