Exhibitor Information: No litter pans will be provided -- we remind exhibitors to bring their own.

No declawed entries are permitted. Cats or kittens should be clean and free of fungus, fleas, ear mites, and any contagious or infectious illness. There will be no veterinarian inspection prior to benching. However, it is strongly advised that all entries be inoculated before entry by a licensed veterinarian against feline enteritis, feline rhinotracheitis, calici viruses and rabies, and strongly recommended that entries be tested and found negative for FeLV before entry. The State of New Hampshire mandates current rabies inoculation for all cats and health certificates current within 10 days for cats/kittens being sold; it is advisable that you bring your cat's certificate(s). No kitten under the age of 4 months shall be permitted in the show hall. Only benched cats or kittens may be present in the show hall -- none may be confined to carriers, either displayed or under cages. All cats or kittens for sale or lease must be benched in the benching area, and must be eligible for CFA registration. The person offering the cat or kitten for sale must have an entry in the show and must ensure an enclosed, secured carrier is used for the transport of the cat being sold. Any sales activity is subject to the approval of the show management. Exhibitors must transport cats into and out of the show hall in an enclosed, secured carrier. No exhibitor may leave cats or kittens in the show hall overnight. First-time exhibitors should contact the show manager for assistance.
