Transcript HOUSTON VOICE • NOVEMBER 16, 2001 m (-tin meow by ELLA TYLER Local gay man among those to show felines at this weekend's International Cat Show in "I became addicted the first time my child won," laughs Wil Johnson, as he confesses how, 15 years ago, he joined the world of cat shows. The openly gay Johrison is a bartender at EJ's and a sometime cat breeder. Two of his cats, Elusions Black Pearl and Elusions Enchantress, will be shown at this weekend's Cat Fanciers' Association, Inc. International Cat Show at the Brown Convention Center. The highlight of the show will be Ihe naming of the "World's Most Beautiful Cat" on Sunday afternoon. "This show," Johnson says, "has only pedigreed cats, unlike many shows that have a household pets category." There will be more than 1,000 cats, representing 40 different breeds, being shown, he says. Each cat entered in this show qualified at one of 11 regional shows held last month. "When cats get to this show, they compete as equals," Johnson notes. "They don't have any points and previous wins don't matter." Black Pearl is a part of the Championship Class for adult un-neutered cats. Enchantress is a kitten and competes in the Kitten Class, of course. Cats that have been neutered compete in a separate class, called Premiership. Johnson is excited about the event. "This is the best part of the year because people come from all over the world to this show. You don't get to see them any other place," he says. Black Pearl and Enchantress are Cornish Rex, a breed that attracted Johnson because their unusual coat did not set off his allergies. "Most cats have three kinds of hairs, but these don't have the coarse guard hairs. They only have the short, fine undercoat," he offers. The cat's unusual coat attracts attention, and makes getting them ready for a show relatively easy. "Some breeds can be work, but these are self-maintaining" Johnson says. "You can wash them if you want, or put on some powder so the white stands out, but generally all you need to do is comb them and maybe add some tex- turizer." Fi fteen years of Cot-lover Johnson admits that he lets his rats — including Elusions Great Expectations or 'Handsome' — have free run of his house. friday, nov. 16 Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS (DIFFA) presents the sixth annual Wreath Collection and auction benefitting DIFFA/Houston, one of the largest sources of private funds for HIV/AIDS care in this area.
