This past weekend, Cultist stopped by the World Cat Congress at the Miami Airport Convention Center -- because duh. We weren't about to miss the largest gathering of cat and cat-people, especially when we heard it would never return to Miami again.
Cats and cat enthusiasts from all over the world stopped by the event to have their pure breeds and domestics judged by a panel of their feline-loving peers. There was a fashion show, an agility ring, and more happy introverts than a '90s Yahoo! chatroom. Big ups to all the fashionistas who came dressed in the same print as their pets.
Of course, we know what you want, and here they are: the most adorable cats at World Cat Congress 2014.
All this excitement has this pretty kitty tuckered out. Zenith is a Siberian, and she just cannot be bothered right now.
This is no cat, this is a monster! Look at the size of that thing! But it looks to be a kind and thoughtful master. See? He'll let you pet him.
Something tells us this cat always gets its way. How could you say no to those eyes?
"The same thing we do every night, Pinky. Try to take over the world."
Smile for the camera! Or, don't...
Alright, exotic shorthairs might be the cutest cats in the entire world. We just love a smushed-up face.
Ugh, they just keep getting cuter. This one is a Himalayan.
This kitty looks quite inquisitive. Let's hope he's not too curious...
This tired Persian was our favorite kitty. Look at that smushy face!
Finally, these kitties are having a shotgun wedding. The bride is "cougar," she's much older than her Abyssinian groom. They look like they may have cold feet, but their handlers could not be more excited. It must be an arranged marriage. We can't wait to see the babies.
