Visitors came to the Seaside Civic and Convention Center this weekend for the Cat Fanciers’ Association “Allbreed Cat Show and Household Pet Competition,” featuring championship, premiership, kittens, veterans and household pets.

The event, showcased breeds “from the common to the uncommon,” said show manager Wendy Heidt, from Maine coons, American short hairs and Persians to Burmilla kittens and American curls — known for the distinctive manner of their ears curled backward rather than standing up straight and coming to a point.

The Cat Fanciers’ Association is an international organization, Heidt said, with from four to eight cat shows taking place every weekend throughout the world. 

The show continues through Sunday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
