ospic_1A truly unique experience in the cat fancy every year is the annual salute to the Bengal breed, called On Safari. Every Bengal breeder considers this show a “must attend” event. There are educational activities, special awards for the feline participants, an evening banquet, and so many spots before your eyes it will make you dizzy!

The most valuable part of this show is the interaction between the breeders as they honestly evaluate the current year’s competitors. Breeders vote on which cats exhibit the best examples of prized traits such as pattern and head type. Every breeder goes home with renewed excitement for the future of their breeding program, new or reinforced friendships, and as a more knowledgeable Bengal breeder.

Shouldn’t EVERY breed have an annual specialty show like this one?

If you are in the Portland Oregon area on October 31st or November 1st, don’t miss this very special event. This exhibition is open to the public, so if you’ve ever wanted to learn more about the beautiful Bengal cat breed, come to the show and learn from the top breeders in the country. This show is an allbreed show, with over 250 cats of more than 30 different breeds, so even if Bengals aren’t your favorite breed, you will have plenty of fabulous felines to admire. Household Pets are also welcome in competition. For more information on entering or visiting the show, follow this link: http://www.tncc.org/
