What will you see?

There will be in excess of 100 pedigree and non-pedigree cats, competing for titles and prizes across 5 judging rings. Each cat is in their own safe “house” and we encourage you to look, but, not touch please. If you’d like to take photos please ask the owners and turn off your flash. Also, if you’d like to stroke anyone’s cat, ask first.

 

You can see the judging in progress and please feel free to ask any members of the team if you would like to know more about what’s happening. You’ll discover that we’re quite a nice bunch really, if a bit obsessed by our cats.

 

What does judging mean?

Each cat is presented to the judges, anonymously. This means the judge will look at each cat and assess it according to the breed standard. Each breed has its own “Standard Of Points” and the judges are looking to ensure each cat meets those standards, for their own breed. Non-pedigree, household pet cats, are judged on presentation and temperament. If a cat is deemed good enough, they can then go through to a final, which is where they earn titles, regional and international points.

 

Further details will be in the published visitor guide, available at the show.
