GEMS - On the cutting edge again!
Egyptian Mau Breed Summit


The CFA Board of Directors has granted permission for a Breed Summit at the 2015
GEMS show. They have approved the following special breed awards: In the 5 Allbreed
rings, all Egyptian Mau classes (Kittens, Championship and Premiership) will be judged
together. Judges will hang each class as usual and award top three in each category.
They will then award their "Best of the Best" regardless of class as follows:
  • 0-14 Egyptian Mau entries: Top three Best of the Best
  • 15-25 Egyptian Mau entries: Top four Best of the Best
  • 26 Egyptian Mau entries or more: Top five Best of the Best
    At the end of the show, top three in each category will be awarded based on class judging.
    And, over all BEST Egyptian Mau will be awarded based on Best of the Best scoring.
