Day one of the CFA-Iams Cat Championship feature breed competitions, cats running through the feline agility course, and overall animal adorableness. As promised, this year's cat show had a bit of election year spirit thrown in, as spectators could vote for either a Republicat or a Democat.

The cat show runs through 5 p.m. today at Madison Square Garden. There are also many wonderful cats to be adopted at the adoption event there at MSG's terrace. If you can't make it, there are many adoption events in and around the city--and here are some organizations, via the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals, that have adoption hours at their facilities.
