The first SOPA Show of the season was held on 24 March 2018 in Lynnwood, Pretoria under the auspices of the KZN Cat Club and sponsored by Hill’s Pet Nutrition, South Africa. Our venue was a creative new concept! SOPA partnered with Bidvest McCarthy Toyota Lynnwood in the launch of the new Toyota Yaris and held the show in their show room. The public was in great attendance and fun was had by all.

Congratulations to our beautiful winners and our stunning cat of the day, a four month old Persian kitten owned and bred by Charmaine Danziger of Tres Jolie Persian & Exotics, Tres Jolie Joie de Vivre! A gallery of our winners and happy snaps can be found on our SOPA Facebook page.

This year, SOPA once again supported Sandpaper Kisses Feline Rescue who does amazing work with the ferals in Pretoria. Please visit their FACEBOOK page to support their cause and give them a like and a follow.

Thank you so much to Hill’s and their amazing rep, Rina Geldenhuys. We were so proud to, once again, be supported by this fantastic brand and participate in the launch of their new food range. The NEW Hill’s Science Plan product, “Youthful Vitality” has been developed to specifically address our oldies’ nutritional needs. It is available for purchase and Hill’s will be sending out product information soon so make sure you are in the loop by joining the Hill’s Breeders Association.

To our Committee, Officials, Judges, Stewards, and our enthusiastic exhibitors, thank you so much for your support and participation in making this show a success! The next SOPA Show will be held in Pretoria on 30 June 2018 but we will be in attendance promoting the breed at the KZNCC Triple Show Weekend in Hillcrest, Durban from 12 – 13 May 2018. We hope to see you there.
