About 100 different breeds, some brought from abroad, took part in the competition organized by the New Israeli Cat Alliance.

The organiser of the show said the judges examined each breed according to its external traits. Cats of all shapes and sizes were paraded on stage, competing for prizes in different categories.

Among the competitions held in the event was the choosing the King and Queen of the cats, who will represent Israel in international competitions.
