Vetting: The show will be non-vetted. It is strongly advised that all cats or kittens entered or present in the show hall be inoculated before entry by a licensed veterinarian against feline panleukopenia (formerly known as feline distemper or feline infectious enteritis), feline rhinotracheitis, calicivirus and rabies. It is also strongly recommended that cats and kittens be tested and found negative for FeLV before entry. All claws of each entry must be clipped prior to benching. Failure to do so will subject the entry to disqualification. Declawed cats are not eligible for competition.
Benching: A single cage size is 22"x22"x22" and is included with your entry fees. Exhibitors with a single entry using any size security cage are required to purchase an extra 1/2 cage. Every effort will be made to honor your benching requests to the best of our talents; but at least one request per exhibitor is guaranteed. A clerk near their rings is not counted as a request. Space provided, handicap requests will be benched at no charge to the exhibitor.
Scoring: All entries in Championship (except Novice), Premiership (except Novice), registered Kittens, recorded Household Pets, and registered cats competing as Household Pets with a Household Pet color class prefix will be scored for CFA awards. Owners of cats/kittens without registration numbers can contact the entry clerk for a Temporary Registration Number.
Show management will take reasonable care of cats and carriers, but will not be responsible for loss or damage.
