Yes, you read that right, there is a cat show. There is even a separate contest for cage decorating. Everyone we talked to was super friendly and very knowledgeable about the process and about their cats. These were seriously well behaved felines.
We also checked out the World's Largest Hog...because it's just not a fair without seeing the world's largest something and well, why not a hog. However, I did find it somewhat awkward when I noticed how many people were looking at the pigs whilst eating hotdogs...but I digress.
One other thing I learned is that people are pretty hard core when it comes to showing goats. Granted I know nothing about them I just think the little ones are cute, but I almost felt like I walked into the goat version of Best in Show. Seriously folks, the goats were getting their hair done. They even had personal fans and jaunty red jackets...and they didn't smell! Needless to say, I was impressed. I thought about including the picture of the giant hog, but lets face it, it was really ugly and I try to avoid putting ugly pictures on here...So in conclusion, we saw lots of cute animals, one giant hog and I learned that people take goats way more seriously than I had anticipated. Stay tuned tomorrow for more info on the fair( what to eat, what to see, what to skip) and less info on 4 legged critters. Ok, there will probably still be a few.
