The Sydney Royal Cat Show is one of the most popular animal competitions at the Easter Show with cats a precious part of the lives of so many Australians.

The Cat competition is part of our Domestic Animals section which aims to highlight the place domestic animals occupy within our community.

Cats first appeared during the Sydney Royal Easter Show in the late 19th Century, and today the competition is one of the most prestigious feline events of its kind.

Four Championship Cat Shows are held during the Sydney Royal Easter Show along with a Breed Display Day. For Exhibitors it's a chance to showcase their dedication and hard work while Show-goers have the opportunity to see and interact with Cats of all breeds, personalities and colours.
