Show Cats

BURLINGTON, VT – Thousands of cat aficionados, and a few dabblers, flocked to the remote socialist nation of Vermont last weekend for the annual Cat Fanciers’ Association Cat Show. The good doctors Perofovich and Swinnard descended upon the event as VIP guests, and their retinue of cat paparazzi captured just a few stolen moments with the competitors.

The clips below were filmed during the "Parade of Breeds" event, hosted by the cat maven in hunter green, who occupies the central space of most of the frames. NB, Please increase your volume liberally in order to hear the sound fully.
