Wellington, 27 May – Wellington is preparing itself for a feline invasion this coming Queen’s Birthday weekend as cats and their owners from all over New Zealand unite for the 2003 WHISKAS National Cat Show.

The event continues to be the number one feline show of its kind in the country, bringing with it strong local and national media interest. The field of judges has been picked from across the globe including the United States, Israel, South Africa and France.
