The first laureate
Winding our clocks back to 1895 New York, let’s visit the first American cat show. Guess who was the winner there? The cat named Cosey stole the show and it was a “brown tabby” cat. Yes, that’s right! Maybe it sounds strange to you, but earlier cats were named and described only by their coat and not by their breed name. In that time, there also weren’t many cat breeds, so the winning cat was also described as a “native American” cat.
