Teesside Cat Club
|Listed since:||16th Aug 09|
Teesside Cat Club was formed in 1975 in the living room of one of three friends.
These ladies were Gwynneth Mason, Angela Slaid, and Pat Edgecombe.
They had a common interest in cats and their welfare, both pedigree and non-pedigree.
They decided to contact other cat loving acquaintances and from there the cat club grew.
After running the compulsory Sanction Shows, Teesside Cat Club ran its first All Breeds Championship Show at Thornaby Sports Pavilion on Saturday 23rd August 1980.
There were 278 pedigree cats entered and 20 household pets.
Some of the Judges present on that day are still judging for Teesside Cat Club today,
some of the original exhibitors are still supporting Teesside by entering their treasured cats
and kittens into our annual Show, 2008 being our 28th All Breeds Championship Show.
