About Wild Rose Cat Club

Wild Rose Cat Club was started by a group of cat enthusiasts in the Midwest Region in 1998. The club’s name was inspired by Iowa’s state flower, the Wild Rose, but members were also affectionately known as the “cookie club”— because they financed their first show by selling baked goodies at shows throughout the region. Wild Rose hosted the Midwest Region qualifiers in Waterloo and put on seven shows, the last being in July of 2007. With the help of your entries, club members hope to once again produce a live in-person show.

Siberian Specialty Ring

All Siberian kittens, championship and premiership cats entered in the show will automatically be entered in this ring at no extra charge. Judge Kathy Black will select her top five Siberians in each class and then choose her top five overall. Each Best of Class winner plus the five Overall winners will receive a beautiful keepsake rosette sponsored by the Siberian Breed Council.
