Twenty local felines will strut their stuff Sunday in the Miss Kitty Cat Strut cat show.

Many of the entries are felines adopted from the Miss Kitty Feline Sanctuary. The event is open to all cats.

“We would love to have some more cats from the public,” said Carol Jones, a Miss Kitty officer.

There is no charge to enter a cat.

Show setup is from 2 to 3 p.m. The show begins at 3 p.m. at Belvedere Commons, 423 Covington Ave.

A committee of Belvedere Commons residents will judge cage decorations and costumes of entries who chose to decorate.

“They will be awarding some surprise categories,” Jones said.

Willie Jackson, a Miss Kitty Feline Sanctuary alumnus, will be in costume as a “feline felon,” Jones said.

“There will be a couple of angels, as well, and at least one patriotic cat, Striper Dupree,” she said.

The cat show is part of a weekendlong observance of Miss Kitty’s first anniversary.

To enter a cat in the show, call Miss Kitty at 236-0167, go to the Miss Kitty website at, or e-mail at
