SHOW STARS

Showing an Egyptian Mau can be a very exciting experience. We love to get the cats out where the public can see these wonderful animals. If we hadn't seen a mau at a show, we would have never known about this rare breed. While it is always thrilling to have one of your cats acknowledged by a judge at a show, the reaction of and response from spectators is also exciting. The important thing about showing is that it provides feedback from objective trained experts about how your cats meet the defined CFA breed standard. When you live with them, their personality takes over your heart and can obscure your objectivity.

In the Cat Fanciers Association (CFA), Pedigreed cats are competed in three categories: Kittens (age 4 to 8 months), Championship (over 8 months) or Premiership (cats over 8 months that have been neutered or spayed). We compete our Egyptian Maus both for National awards and titles and for Regional Awards. New England is in the North Atlantic Region which is consistently one of the top two toughest regions to earn awards in. The NAR includes all of New England, eastern Canada, eastern New York, New Jersey, and eastern Pennsylvania. Details of CFA titles can be found on the "Grands" page.

The CFA has a competition for non-pedigreed cats, Household Pets (HHP) category. CFA scores the HHP competitions as it does Pedigreed Cats and provides Regional Awards to the top 25 highest scoring HHP at the end of the show season. Starting with the 2015 Show season (May 1) they will also earn titles similar to pedigree cats.

CFA also offers Feline Agility competition. In this category, the cats are scored for the time taken to run a ten obstacle course. They get points for the number of obstacles completed in under four and a half minutes. If all obstacles are completed, bonus points are scored for the time below the max allowed. Obstacles include steps, hoops, hurdles, tunnels, and weave poles.

THE STORY:

The current show season is showcasing the boys - brothers Arya (Ra'sAbi's Arya of Schooiertjes) and Rafi (Ra's Abi's Rafi). Arya granded at the Bremen, Germnay show in October and after a break from showing as a kitten, Rafi is ready to continue his quest.

Rafi and Arya are being joined by seasoned show veterans Amirah and Alina. Grand Premier Amirah has enjoyed showing again in Premiership (after about 4 years off) while daughter Alina has been working on earning her Grand Premier title. Both are born show cats and love coming back out into the show hall. Judges are amazed when they see that Amirah is almost 10 years old! Alina continues to wow the judges after having taken several years off to raise her kittens (show stars Eli, Ari, Ziva and Kanika!).

Our mature Havana Brown Brina (Blakewood Adi Brina of Ra'sAbi) is wowing judges this show season. In September this gorgeous rare breed of cat earned her Grand Premier title at National Capitol Cat Show and in November made 4 finals at the CFA World Show. To cap off the season, she finished with a regional win - 25th Best Cat in Premiership in the North Atlantic Region

Household pets Buddy and Kelsey Belle will continue to make suprise visits to the show hall!
