Bertie, the red cameo cat

Over a thousand cats competed to be named the best of their breed — and ultimately the coveted "Supreme Exhibit" — at The Supreme Show of the Governing Council of the Cat Fancy (GCCF) on Nov. 23 in Birmingham, England. The show's categories include Persian (like the cameo cat pictured above), Semi-Longhair, British, Foreign, Burmese, Oriental and Siamese.

After a day full of lounging, playing and snuggles — and of course working magic on the judges — we'd say all of the cats made out like bandits.
