|I show HHP in CFA, I am in Region 1.
CFA does not officially score HHP's, as does TICA, but in most regions,
we have a scorekeeper, not sure who region 2 scorekeeper is. I do know
region 4 does not score. We score the same as the breed people do, we
keep track of the points, and the top 10 winners, recieve a certificate,
with their pictures on it, as well as a rosette. The top 11-25 recieve a
certificate with their picture on it, and a flat ribbion.
The scorekeeper keeps track of the points thru out the entire season.
The season runs May 1-April 30, so we are pretty much just starting the
new season. Most regions will score, whatever show you go to, in whatever
state or region. One region, think it is 6, only scores the shows in their
If the scorekeeper, of your region, is at the show, she will score the show.
If she is not, its up to you guys to email her the show results.
Most regions have their own site.
The best way to find shows, is to go to Cat Shows US!!
It lists the shows by date and club and state. If it has a little green box at
the far right, it means they allow HHP's.
You click on the show, and it brings up the flyer, with all the info you
need, and it has a link, where you can enter online. It also lists the CD or
closing date, which means you have to enter by that date.
Once you enter, you email the entry clerk, to see if they rec'd your entry.
Then they will send you a confirmation, usually by email. Once you enter,
if for what ever reason you cannot go, you still have to pay the entry fee,
even if its for a medical reason, yours or the cats. If you enter in the
last 10 days before the show, you can pay at the door, but it has to be in
You get a 1/2 cage for free, per cat, so if you have 2 cats, you get a
double cage for free. Like the other poster said, its worth paying the extra
$20 or $25 to get the double cage. Even if you bring your own show
shelter or tent, you still have to pay the double cage fee.
If you want to paw mail me your email, I will forward it to the moderator
of our HHP Board, she is the scorekeeper of region 7. Alot of good info
on there, and that way you can find your region 2 scorekeeper, who will
be glad to help you.
HHP's in CFA cannot be declawed, and must be s/n by 8 months old,
and be 4 months old to show, and their claws must be clipped.
In CFA, all the HHP's show together, in TICA, they divy it up by kittens,
adults, LH, SH, and colors. In TICA cats can be declawed.
I show all over the east coast, and whatever state I went to, I found the
HHP people to be very friendly and very helpful. When you enter, at the
bottom, there is a comment section. Indicate this is your first show, and
they will bench you with other HHP people, and assign you a mentor.
Please let me know if you need anything or have any questions, would be
glad to help.
