Although the GCCF show year now follows the calendar year, the collection of Cat of The Year show points for 2024 will be awarded from 1st September 2023 to 31st August 2024; the COTY show year will now always be during the months September to the following August. This will enable winners points to be collated in order that awards can be made at the Supreme Show, to be held on 19th October 2024.
Once scoring is started the leaders’ information will be given out, these will then be posted on the GCCF website.
The scoring will be as simple as possible so that ALL are aware & know who the leaders are & will be posted on a monthly basis to allow time for any adjustments to be made.
All shows will carry as far as is practicably possible a similar level of scoring, to ensure Breed & All Breed are on a par with each other.
- 1 point for Best of Variety Cat/Kitten & Neuter (1)
- 1 additional Point for Overall Best of Variety (2)
- 1 additional Point for Overall Best in Show (3)
- Maximum Number of Points at any single show will be 3 Points
Kitten points will be carried forward to either Adult or Neuter status & not lost.
There will be an Overall winner in Cat/Kitten & Neuter categories, with an Overall Winner selected from those 3 exhibits in each Section.
The same criteria will apply for Pet Classes:
Best HP / Pedigree Pet (whether adult or kitten), 1 point each
Overall Winner an additional 2 points
The system of scoring will be reviewed if necessary, to ensure complete fairness for all.
