This Saturday and Sunday, Madison Square Garden welcomes the Annual CFA-Iams Cat Championship Cat Show. The show has many guest speakers and events, like the Feline Agility Competition, which is open to the public's cats, too. And, of course, there is the Best of Breed and Best in Show judging.

We'll have more about the cat show tomorrow, but we wanted to draw your attention to one of the areas. The Mayor's Alliance for NYC Animals has a free "Adopt-A-Cat" event at the Garden. Over 500 cats from different shelters and rescue groups around the city will be available for adoption. We met two of the cats available for adoption. A mother and her kittens were found outside the Apollo Theater; sadly, three of the kittens died, but mommy Jazz and baby Bebop are fighters - and super sweet and absurdly cute!
