Lisa Ferguson of Fargo spent the weekend showing off her 10-year-old Maine Coon, Commander Worf, at the 40th annual Minn-Kota Feline Club Cat Show in the ag building of the Red River Valley Fairgrounds.


Worf was one of 130 cats entered in the event — slightly larger than the average Midwest cat show — and one of the few cats that did not have to spend several hours in a car to participate in the event. He was named the second-best Maine Coon at the show.
