There's just a few things you need to know.
ACFA rules and procedures:
Champion status: Whole cats and Alters need to win FOUR Winners Ribbons to become a Champion. Winners Ribbons are given to the best cat of each breed, sex, color, and status within a class. That means if you cat is just starting out and is in Open status they only compete against other cats in Open status. If your cat receives four Winners Ribbons on Saturday you will need to fill out the confirmation form, included in the catalog, to promote it to Champion and pay the $7 fee to be able to show the cat on Sunday. Because the criteria include status and color, it is very easy for the breeds that come in many colors to obtain the four Winners Ribbons on Saturday.
ALL BENGALS, KORATS, PIXIBOBS, SINGAPURAS AND NBC’S MUST HAVE A REGISTRATION NUMBER PRIOR TO ENTERING THE SHOW!
