"Ladies and gentlemen, start your cats!" said entry clerk Carol Barton at the start of the 2019 East of Eden Cat Fanciers show at the Monterey County Fairgrounds on Saturday morning.
Between judging sections, cat owners posed for portraits with their felines. Some cats were naturals in front of the camera, while others couldn't wait to get away.
The Cat Fanciers show happens again on Sunday., Feb. 24 from 10am in the Salinas Room at the Monterey County Fairgrounds.
