"Dogs have masters and cats have staff, the servants, and that's us. It takes some intelligence to know how to twist that dynamic around and that's what cats do."

This past weekend, cats and their owners converged on the Garden State Exhibit & Convention Center in Somerset, New Jersey for the 78th Garden State Cat Show. The agility contest promised scenes of cats racing through stairs and tunnels, leaping through hoops and over obstacles.

The show is the largest cat show on the East Coast. Other than the agility contest, the two-day event also included breed showcase, cat products sale and cap adoption.
