The 34th annual Hidden Peak Cat Club show hits the Maryland State Fairgrounds Aug. 11 and 12, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days. Expect the fur to fly during some tense competitions: Non-pedigreed pets will compete against each other and all cats are eligible for agility competitions, which are basically cool obstacle courses. The big event is the judging of the 200 to 300 purebreds, from Maine Coon cats to hairless Sphynxes.  And, of course, every good show includes shopping opportunities.

Send in the ClownsIt was in 1793 that Philadelphian John Bill Ricketts gave us the very first circus -- a one-ring horse and clown show. Now, 200 years later, we get to enjoy the extravagance of the three-ring circus of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey complete with horses and clowns as well as trapeze artists, lions, tigers, elephants and those guys who can walk a tightrope without a net. Because the circus' biggest fans are children, it is fitting that this edition of the big-top event promises to showcase young performers, most of whom are between the ages of 6 and 16. Kids of all ages should also enjoy watching circus stars perform on the Globe of Death and the Wheel of Death.

FOR MOST of my life, the two most frightening words in the English language have always been "cat show," summoning images of a stuffy arena filled with primped and powdered cats parading in front of a torpid audience that is clapping politely so as not to fall asleep. So I was more than a little surprised recently to receive an e-mail inviting me to be a "celebrity judge" at a cat show. This shows you how much the term "celebrity" has been devalued. I could imagine all these cat people standing around, waiting for John Waters or Cal Ripken Jr. or some other famous person to be judging their cats, and then I walk in. Yeah, that would really whip up the crowd.
