Cat lovers have gathered in Dundee for the annual Nor’ East of Scotland Cat Club show.

The club was founded in 1964 by a “small group of dedicated cat lovers and enthusiasts”, organisers said.

All cats were welcomed at the club’s championship show at Dundee’s Caird Hall, from household pets to pedigrees.
