ST . PETERSBURG — The No. 1-ranked Bengal cat in the world, a feline from Indiana, drew a crowd at the Skyway Cat Club of Tampa Bay’s 30th annual TICA Cat Show on Sunday.
But the judges, who rarely agree, thought a 6-month-old Bengal owned by Melody Boyd, a Savannah, Georgia-based foreclosure attorney was prettier. “You want to know the dark and dirty side of cat shows? It’s all politics. It’s all how well-known the cat is,” Boyd said in a near whisper.
