Ocicats International and Maine Street Cat Club donate lifesaving
Oxygen Rescue Mask to Simpsonville SC Fire Department

CFA Southern Region Director Mark Hannon presented a Pet Oxygen Rescue Mask to the Simpsonville Fire Department at noon on September 3, 2011 on behalf of Ocicats International and Maine Street Cat Club in conjunction with our show.

SurgiVet animal oxygen masks are used by fire departments to assist pets affected by fires or other disasters.
The SurgiVet animal oxygen masks come in sets of three, with each set containing three different sizes of mask. The masks are designed to fit over the muzzles of a variety of animals, featuring rubber rings that help the mask fit snugly. The masks attach to oxygen bottles and can also be attached to flexible air bags.

A “BEARY” good time is had by all at the
Ocicats International – Maine Street Cat Club Show

After a long Labor day weekend, Maine Street Cat Club and Ocicats International would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for coming to our show and help making it such a fun weekend!!! Like any proper “Teddy Bear Picnic” it felt like a true family reunion with exhibitors from almost every region in CFA including our newest region Europe!!!
With 35 Maine Coons and 9 Ocicats, there were great representatives of both breeds covering a myriad of color classes! Special Maine Street Rosettes, laser etched vases and amazing bags that made me envious were provided for best ocicats in each class, best Maine coons in each class and our best in show cats by Grace Cox, David Bennett and Rose Spillman.

David Bennett did a great job cutting and burning the bear key chains which were out top 10 ring awards
 Set up and Tear down was a HUGE effort and we had so MANY people helping!

Stevie Stacy, Daedra Marshall, Jacqui , Robert and David Bennett, Scott and Alisa Hammonds, Russ Haller, Sammy and Ginger McFaddin, Andrea Haddix, Beth Polstra, Cathy White, Gerry Walsh, Ira and Karen Multer, Sasha Wagner, Donna Hinton, Venus Devoe, and  Andrea Cobb (and huge apologies if I missed anyone, it was quite a crowd!)

We made a really great presentation with our teddy bear theme and decorations.
