NEW YORK – A Japanese bobtail took home the blue ribbon this weekend at the 5th annual Cat Fanciers' Association-Iams Cat Championship, held in New York City.

Winning the pedigree competition was NJ born Tess – a one-and-a-half year-old bobtail raised by Jill Archibald and Karen Bishop.

325 cats and their owners came to Madison Square Garden for what is considered one of the most prestigious cat competitions.

Accompanying the main pedigree challenge were an agility competition, a breed showcase, adoptions, product vendors and Iams trained cats.

These competitions aren't like the dog shows we're familiar with - the cat show is a bit subdued. Owners say that while the canine version has more action, the cat show is a beauty contest.

From nose to tail, these felines are pampered in every way possible. Some owners claim to have bathed their cats for hours before the event. With special brushes for face and body, no hair goes untouched.
