The No Name Cat Club has a unique and storied past that dates back to its founding in 1985. Our club was initially established by JoAnne and Joe Ezard, who may have drawn inspiration for the name from PC’s No Name products or the enigmatic Unknown Comic, known for performing with a paper bag on his head. Although the name’s true origin remains a mystery, the spirit and passion for cats that the founders shared have never waned.
The club went dormant for a period, but that all changed when Heather Garvie took it upon herself to revive the No Name Cat Club to organize cat shows in Owen Sound. Under her leadership, the club’s first show at the Bayshore Community Center was a resounding success, attracting numerous vendors and over 1000 visitors.

The event was held in a bright, sunlit hall that opened onto beautiful gardens along the lakeshore. It offered the perfect setting for cat lovers to gather and celebrate their passion. Since that first show, the No Name Cat Club has continued to grow and thrive. We remain dedicated to providing a welcoming space for cat enthusiasts to connect and enjoy feline-focused events.
As we look towards the future, we’re proud to carry on the legacy that JoAnne, Joe, and Heather have built. We’re excited to see what new adventures and milestones the No Name Cat Club will achieve in the years to come.
