Cat showing is a competition where a cat’s attributes and conformation are compared against a breed standard for its breed, and is a fun and social hobby for cat owners.
If you are thinking of showing your cat, the first step is to attend a show as a visitor, to get a flavour of what to expect.
GCCF clubs organise shows all over the country, both All Breed and Breed Specialist shows, giving you opportunities to compete regularly and meet like-minded people.
Certificates and Titles
Adult cats, both entire and neutered, pedigree and non-pedigree are eligible to win Certificates; these lead to the awarding of official titles.
The Household Pet Section is divided into two groups – Non-Pedigree Pets for cats of traditional “domestic” appearance, and Pedigree Pets for those looking like pedigrees with known or unknown pedigree background.
This page explains the vaccination rules as they apply to GCCF shows, so that you can familiarise yourself with them well ahead of show time.
