In observation of the Cat Fanciers’ Association’s (CFA) 100th anniversary, two award-winning kittens rang the closing bell of the Oct. 5, New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) trading session.

Guest kittens Bondi’s Hugh Jackman of Abycastle, a European Burmese, and Kuorii Enjoy the Silence of Exton, a solid black Persian were the lucky cats to ring the bell. Both of the kittens are from the New York-New Jersey area.

The event commemorated the CFA’s 100th anniversary, and promoted the organization’s upcoming fourth annual CFA-Iams Cat Championship held Oct. 14-15, in New York’s Madison Square Garden.

Iams and 4Kids Entertainment are the NYSE member companies that requested that the kittens and CFA members be allowed to ring the closing bell.

It was the first time in the NYSE's history that cats came up to the podium, Kitty Angell said.
