The LondonCats Cat Extravaganza - a yearly trade show based on all things feline - is adding a very special event to its schedule.

This year's show will involved the first ever 'Mini Drag Cat Con' hosted and judged by an actual RuPaul's Drag Race star.

Scaredy Kat, who came ninth place in the first season of the UK iteration, will be attending to give her expertise, as exhibitors and their cats are invited to take part in a fancy dress 'fun ring'.

Don your best fancy dress and dress up your feline (matching outfits are sure to win extra kudos) before being judged by the queen.

"Cats and Queens will come together for the first-ever," reads the event info. "Visitors are invited to come along to the event dressed up as well to turn this truly into a once in a lifetime event at the first ever #MINIDRAGCATCON"

How incredible does that sound?!

Elsewhere in the cat show, attendees will be able to indulge their love of the furry creatures, getting up close with dozens of breeds coming along in the hopes to bag the Best Kitten, Best Cat, Best Alter and Best Household Pet accolades.

There'll be everything from favourite breeds such as the Bengal, British Short Hair, Maine Coon and Sphynx.

You'll also get the chance to encounter some newer breeds such as the Lykoi (werewolf cat), American Curl, Toyger and many more, all under one roof. Dreams do come true.

Guests will also be able to listen to a full schedule of talks over in Kitty Corner, while there'll be ample opportunity to treat your feline friend with tons of stalls where you can buy everything from scratching posts to toys.
