The cat's meow

Join the Black-Eyed Susan Cat Club as it sponsors its All-Breed Championship and Household Pet Cat Show this weekend in Annapolis. Fancy felines, including the Maine Coon cat and the Manx, will be on display, along with their more common cousins. The cats will be divided into four categories and rated by eight licensed judges. After working their way from the American Shorthair to the Cornish Rex, visitors can buy gifts for their cats and themselves from various vendors. Kittens also will be for sale. As cat lovers will be glad to know, all the show's profits will be donated to local and national cat welfare organizations.

Visit the cat show at the Medford National Guard Armory, 18 Willow St., Annapolis, from 9 a.m. to 4: 30 p.m., Saturday and Sunday. Admission is $5 for adults, $4 for senior citizens and students, and $3 for children 12 and under. All visitors receive a dollar off admission charge if they bring a cat food item. Cat food will be donated to local rescue groups. Call 410-850-0574. The Candlelight Concert Society's Performing Arts Series for Children offers more than words as it sponsors a production by the Mum Puppettheatre. Using original music as well as sound effects, the puppet company presents a completely "wordless" production. This Sunday, it's "Friends, Fables and Fun," telling the tales of Aesop, Hans Christian Andersen and the Russian poet Krilov. The show inspires the imagination and keeps the audience involved. After the show, audiences are treated to a behind-the-scenes tour where they can meet the performers and

learn about the puppets and the sets they use.

The shows are Sunday, 2 p.m. and 3: 30 p.m., at Howard Community College's Smith Theatre, Little Patuxent Parkway, Columbia. General admission is $6 for both children and adults. For tickets and information, call 410-715-0034 or 301-596-6203.
