CAT lovers from across the country flocked with their pets to the Fens on Saturday for the Exotic Shorthair Cat Society's fifth annual cat show.There were 94 entries for the show, held at the Queen Mary Centre, Wisbech, ranging from very unusual exotic pedigree cats to regular household pets.As well as the show, there were also stalls from organisations including Pet Provisions UK, from Swaffham and cat charities, the Last Post Sanctuary near Wisbech and Isle of Ely Cat Protection. And its organisers say they are already planning next year's show.Barbara McEwan, society secretary, said: "Out of 94 entries, only 11 were absent. Some travel from as far away as Wales and Cheshire for the event, and taking the bad weather into consideration, we thought it was very good turnout."We had some beautiful cats enter, and the judges were very impressed with the standard of entries."For more information on the Exotic Shorthair Cat Society, contact Mrs McEwan, or her husband Stuart, at The Cottage Cattery, in West Walton, on 01945 780027
