Would you like to show your cat?

So you want to show your cat. The first piece of advice would be to go and visit a show to get a feel for what it's like.  The GCCF have a show calender that lists all the shows taking place in the next twelve months.

The Show Day starts from around 8am when exhibitors start to arrive for vetting in. Each cat must be seen by the vet and signed off as fit. You will then pass into the show hall where you find your allocated pen. 
We would always suggest giving the pen a quick wipe over with pet friendly wipes before setting up the blanket, litter tray and water dish. These must all be white with no markings or distinguishing features. You can then put your cat in and feed them.  You can also give them a last minute groom.
Around 10am you will be asked to leave the hall for judging to commence and at this time you must remove any toy and the food bowl from the cage.

The judges will go around the hall assisted by a steward and judge their allocated classes usually commencing with the title and breed classes. Results will be posted throughout the morning on the boards.

Around 1pm you will be allowed back into the hall and can put food back in the pen and one small toy. However, the judges will still be going around judging side classes, and if one approaches your pen you must move away immediately. The public are also allowed in around this time to view the cats.

During the afternoon you will find any rosettes or certificates you have won delivered to your pen.  

Towards the end of the afternoon the 'Best in show' judging will take place. This is usually done in a seperate area of the hall where spectators are welcome.

Most shows close around 5pm, this will be announced and you must not leave the show hall until that time. 

If you are new to showing or just thinking about it please contact us and we will try and find you a 'buddy' to offer help and general advice.

If you do decide to show please remember to send us your details so we can include you in our Show Bench Competition.
