Jan. 17, 2002 (Lexington, Ky.) -- The Cincinnati Zoo will bring its cat show to the University of Kentucky at 2 p.m., Saturday, Jan. 26, in Memorial Hall. The family-fun event is free and open to the public.

The show will feature performances by a Canadian lynx and his friend anatolian shepherd, a cheetah, housecats, an ocelot, guard dogs and more.

UK student and former Cincinnati Zoo intern David Hutchinson undertook bringing the show to UK, using the new Coalition Grant program offered by UK Student Government.

"I am very interested in our environment and wanted to find a way to get others interested," Hutchinson said. "The Coalition Grant was perfect opportunity to do that and meet Student Government's goal of bringing student groups together to work on common goals."

Hutchinson brought several groups together to sponsor this event, including UK Green Thumb, Campus Girl Scouts, UK Students for the Green Party, the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, the UK Pre-Vet Club, the United Federation of Sidewalk Chalkers and Pi Sigma Phi and Phi Alpha Theta service fraternities.

The event also will feature a service fair in the lobby of Memorial Hall to provide information about service and volunteering to UK students and others.
