The Seaside Civic and Convention Center is used to hosting dramatic performances. The venue is the site of the Miss Oregon competition every year but those performers typically do not need to be coaxed and/or carried into the limelight as was the case for some contestants at the Emerald Cat Club Show last weekend. After a little primping, grooming and a few treats for encouragement, all competitors eventually strutted their stuff at the judges table.
