The Garden State Cat Club will celebrate its 80th anniversary with the
2016 CAT EXPO. Our proposed activities will draw the general public to
the CAT EXPO and also inform and educate them about the world of cats.
It is a great opportunity to bring your products to the attention of the
cat loving people.
Cats In Cars will be back at this year's Expo! They're too adorable to
miss. See therapy cats Waffle and Tirzah riding around in their personalized
car in the show hall. Stop and have a chat with them.
The Expo is designed to educate the cat owning public about cats, cat
care, new products and training, while assisting area shelters with its
Adopt-A-Cat. The event will be complimented by the club's annual cat show.
One of the top five cat shows held in the United States, it is the largest
in New Jersey. It is also our club's major fund-raiser so we can continue
to support cats in many ways. Who do we help? Please Read more!
Enter YOUR cat in the show!

We LOVE our vendors, and you will too so please visit them for your favorite
items and some new ones too!
The Adopt-A-CAT and show have a history of drawing many visitors from
the New York-New Jersey Metro area and all of the Mid-Atlantic States.
Exhibitors come from across the United States with most from the East
Coast. In recent years, several thousand people have attended the 2-day
The EXPO will present activities and seminars that will educate the pet

keys to successful feral cat colonies. The list to the right is a brief
