What is a cat show?
A show is a competition between cats in a show grouping.
Pedigreed cats are judged against a Breed Standard.
The Household Pets class may consist of any of the following: (1) a non-pedigreed cat (mixed breed); (2) a cat which “looks like” a particular pedigreed breed, but has no registration papers; or (3) a pedigreed cat which, for some reason, such as kinked tail, wrong eye color, etc., prohibits it from being shown in the Championship class. Household Pet judging is based on health, disposition, and “purrsonality.”
While all classes are scored for Parade of Perfection wins, kittens do not compete for titles. Kittens are usually entered in shows for the experience.
There are six titles:
In the Championship Class the titles are: Novice, Champion, Double Champion, Grand Champion, Double Grand Champion and Master Grand Champion.
In the Alter Class the titles are: Alter Novice, Alter Champion, Alter Double Champion, Alter Grand Champion, Alter Double Grand Champion and Alter Master Grand Champion.
In the Household Pet Class the titles are; Household Pet Novice, Household Pet Companion, Household Pet Double Companion, Household Pet Grand Companion, Household Pet Double Grand Companion and Household Pet Master Companion
All cats enter their first adult show as a novice.
