Cats from all over the country travelled to the Fens for the sixth championship held by the Exotic Shorthair Cat Society.
Organisers were delighted at the standard of the 100 entries which came from as far afield as Wales, York, Kent, Essex and Shropshire.
There was a steady stream of visitors to the event, at the Queen Mary Centre, Wisbech, which had a section for household pets which proved popular as well as those for pedigrees.
An added attraction were the exhibition cats in decorated pens.
