The All About Cats Expo will be all 3 days March 10th -12th 2023.
The ALL ABOUT CATS EXPO has expanded for 2023 and will be held in the OHIO BUILDING on the OHIO EXPO CENTER grounds.

Your admission ticket to the COLUMBUS PET EXPO will get you into both the BRICKER MULTI-PURPOSE BUILDING and the OHIO BUILDING where the ALL ABOUT CATS EXPO show will take place. The ALL ABOUT CATS EXPO is an officially judged TICA event with 7 judging rings with seating for the public in front of each ring. Over 200 cats will be competing for ribbons. Up to 60 breeds will be represented including housecats! Dr. ELSEY is the main sponsor for the ALL ABOUT CATS EXPO and will be represented in the OHIO BUILDING. In the BRICKER MULTI-PURPOSE BUILDING, you will find the CAT RESCUE GROUPS with adoptable cats and vendors with numerous products for cats.
Cats are fast. They are natural sprinters, so it is exciting to watch cats do agility. House cats can run at top speeds of around 30 miles (48 km) per hour. This is a comparable maximum running speed to those of white tail deer, warthogs
and grizzly bears. It is also the top speed achieved by track star Usain Bolt.
Cats are excellent jumpers. The average housecat can jump 6-times its height. Dogs 1-times. Humans only 1-times.
Cats learn quickly. They have a very long short-term memory (16 hours for cats, 10 minutes for dogs).
Once they have learned the course, they sometimes will do a clean run by themselves.
Cats have excellent short-distance visual focus and accuracy (so do foxes),
because they are low to the ground and pounce on prey.
Dogs are pack animals who take orders and do the obstacles only as ordered by the handler.
Cats do agility because it is their decision.
