Viva Las Vegas II – The International Cat Association’s 40th Show

Viva Las Vegas II presented by JazzyCats is bringing a huge event to Nevada celebrating all things CATS and all things VEGAS! The International Cat Association (TICA)’s 40th show and ceremony will take place in Rio All-Suites Hotel and Casino this Labor Day weekend.

A Show for Lovers of Purebred Cats

Around 500 cats across 70 breeds will be competing for TICA titles such as Best Cat, Best Kitten, Best Neuter, and Best Household in Show. Featuring 14 interactive judging rings where international judges will stage, present and reward your favorite breeds as well as more exotic ones from around the world, such as the Bengal, British Short Hair, Maine Coon, and Sphynx all under one roof.
There will be cats of all breeds at this spectacular event attending from all over the world, including many rare breeds you may not have seen before, like the Lykoi – also know as “The Werewolf cat!” Never touched a Sphynx before? There will be several attending for you to admire and learn about. If you prefer your cats fully clothed, fear not! Some of the most stunning long-haired cats of many breeds will be attending in style. Unusual distinguished beauties with curly coats, sleek elegant sophisticated siamese, oriental shorthair or peterbalds will gladly bask in your admiration. There is something for everyone, including fans of wonderful domestic shorthair and longhair cats and kittens.

Treats & Gifts for you own Cat Too

You might be surprised to learn that TICA celebrates all cats in their association, and not just pedigreed cats. This is an amazing day for all of the family to come and spend the weekend in the company of some of the most beautiful cats in the world. There will also be plenty of paw-some opportunities to spoil your own feline companions with treats and gifts from a multitude of sponsors such as Dr. Elsey’s, Royal Canin, Sturdi Products, Scarla’s Cats, Viagen Pets, PawTree and many more!
The show is open to the public August 31 – September 01 from 9am-5pm.
See you there!
