CFA Ranking

May 3rd 2012 10:10 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ]

For some strange reason, the cat show season ends in April and starts in May. The CFA rankings are in now that the show season is over. I finished the show season as CFA's 6th Best European Burmese in Premiership Nationally. The Top 5 European Burmese in each class get breed awards from the breed council. I just missed that. Mom is very proud of me though. I am now officially "retired" from CFA cat shows.

No rankings yet from ACFA. Mom will be taking us to an ACFA show in a couple weeks. I will likely be "retiring" from the ACFA shows this summer too.

Mom and my breeders are very proud of me. I was technically sold as a "pet" and was never supposed to be a show cat. Later, when Mom sent my breeders pictures and updates on me, they suggested Mom could try showing me. I had matured better than they thought. I have by far exceeded any expectations Mom had for me in the show halls. Mom just thought we might try a couple shows for fun, and had no idea I'd do so well.

 

This weekend's cat show...

Mom took all three of us to an ACFA cat show in Chippewa Falls, WI this weekend. Vinny and I were competing directly against each other as we're the same breed, European Burmese. It was an 8 ring show. I got Best of Breed in one ring, Vinny got Best of Breed in 7 rings. I also made one final, 3rd Best All Breed Alter. Hope Vinny doesn't get too full of himself, after all I'm the one who's taught him how to be a good show cat.

 

I'm a Dreamboat!

Mom took Vinny and I to a CFA cat show in the Twin Cities last weekend. Vinny and I were the only European Burmese in the show, and were competing directly against each other. It was a 6 ring show, and I got Best of Breed in 4 rings. I got:

- All Breed, 5th Best Cat
- All Breed, 2nd Best Cat
- Shorthair Specialty, BEST Cat
- Shorthair Specialty, 8th Best Cat

Mom is hoping I might do well enough to qualify for a breed award in CFA this show season. The European Breed counsil gives awards to the Top 5 cats internationally in each category (Championship, Premiership, and Kittens). Paws crossed!

 

ACFA title

Mom checked with ACFA, and I accumulated enought points for the title of Triple Grand Champion Alter! Quadruple Grand Champion is as high as you can go in ACFA, and Mom is hoping I can get that too. We might go to a CFA show the end of January. Probably no more ACFA shows til April though.

Mom took Vinny and I to an ACFA show in Janesville, WI last weekend. Mom was very happy how well we did. I made finals in 5 out 8 rings. I got 4th, 4th, 9th, and 2nd Best All Breed Alter, and 4th Best Shorthair Alter in the Shorthair Specialty ring. Details on how Vinny did are in his diary. Mom also uploaded a couple pictures from the show to the end of our Catster Plus photo albums.

 

New pictures!

Mom posted the pictures Preston Smith took of me at the CFA show in the Twin Cities tonight. I was NOT very cooperative for the photo shoot, and Mom was impressed with the shots he got of me. Let me know what you think!

Mom took Rider and I to a CFA cat show this weekend. We've been showing in ACFA all year til now. Mom decided to enter us for three reasons: 1) it's one of only two CFA shows in reasonable driving distance for us, 2) Mom wanted to see if Rider could get any points toward CFA Grand Premier, and 3) the photographer Preston Smith would be there.

Well, I did great. It was a two day show with 6 rings/judges each day. I made finals in 9/12 rings! I have to admit though, this show got a low entry count and did not get that many cats.

As for the photo shoot... neither Rider or I was very cooperative. I have a history of being "camera-shy", and I tend to act big professional cameras are literally going to shoot me. The photographer was good though, and despite me being so uncooperative, did get some decent shots he's going to work with. Mom should get the disk in about a month, and will post pictures then...

Went back to the cat show this morning. I made another final, 9th Best All Breed Alter. So, I made 3 finals out of 8 possible rings along with becoming an ACFA Grand Champion Alter this weekend. Time for a nap after all that hard work!

Mom took me to a local ACFA cat show today. I got the last Winner's Ribbons I needed and also made two finals - 3rd Best All Breed Alter, and 4th Best All Breed Alter. I am now officially a Grand Champion Alter in ACFA. I am the first European Burmese to achieve Grand status in ACFA, and the first European Burmese to Grand in two different associations (CFA and ACFA). Mom and my breeders are VERY proud of me! I'm going back to the cat show tomorrow, but Mom wanted to post my news.
