Phimai Fair 2012

Every year around the start of November, Phimai Town has its annual fair, of which the highlights include long boat races, a sound and light show staged at the famous Khmer temple, and a cat show. The cat show occurred on November 10, 2012, and was attended by Bobbie Weirauch and Robin Bryan from the USA, as well as Eva and Kate from Australia. It was sweltering hot and rather crowded, and the cats were visibly thirsty! Prizes were given, including rosettes from USA, Europe and Australia, for Korats, Wichienmas, Khaomanee and house cats. Khun Istzy was there and swept the board with his Korats. We also dropped by Chuchai’s house and cattery.
