The WCF (World Cat Federation) Coral Jubilee Cat Show in Ho Chi Minh City attracts a high number of cats.

An international cat breed competition commenced in Ho Chi Minh City on Saturday with the participation of 60 domestic cats and 12 felines from other countries.

The competition, named the WCF (World Cat Federation) Coral Jubilee Cat Show, was held by the Vietnamese Cat Association to honor local and international cat owners and professional cat breeders, following Asia’s first cat festival held in Hanoi in June.

The event helped boost the professional cat breeding and spread the love of animals, according to Nguyen Thi Hong Tham, a representative of the organizer.

Duy expected his cat to win a prize at the competition, adding that his pet had her hair groomed professionally before the contest.
