GRANDS

In the Cat Fanciers Association (CFA), 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 consistantly 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.

Starting in the 2012 show season, the CFA also started awarding titles for cats competing in Feline Agility. This is a timed event where a cat runs a course of ten obstacles. Points are awarded based on the total time and number of faults.

CFA Titles:

CH - Champion - title for an unaltered cat obtained by winning six "winner's ribbons" from six different judges. The cat must be the best of the unranked cats in its category and deemed to be of sufficient merit to show based on the breed show standard.

PR - Premier - equivalent title to Champion for altered cats.

GC - Grand Champion - title for unaltered cats obtained by beating 200 other Champions.

GP - Grand Premier - equivalent title to Grand Champion for altered cats, obtained by beating 75 other Premiers.

RW - Regional Winner - Title obtained by finishing in the top 25 allbreed cats in a region at the end of a show season. Awarded in Kitten, Championship, and Premiership classes.

NW - National Winner - Title obtained by finishing in the top 25 allbreed cats nationally at the end of a show season. Awarded in Kitten, Championship, and Premiership classes.

BW - Breed Winner - Title awarded to the National Best of Breed in Championship at the end of the show season.

DM - Distinguished Merit - This is the only title awarded for quality of offspring. Awarded to females who have produced 5 Grand titled offspring and males who have sired 15 Grand titled offspring.

AC - Agility Competitor - Awarded to a cat who competes the agility course with no faults in under 270 seconds.

AW - Agility Winner- Awarded to a cat who has accumulated a total of 500 points in agility competition.

AM - Agility Master - Awarded to a cat who has accumulated a total of 2000 points in agility competition.

AG - Agility Grand Master - Awarded to a cat who has accumulated a total of 4000 points in agility competition.

Ra's Abi is proud that the judges have found the following cats exceptional representatives of the Egyptian Mau Breed, by awarding them the title of Grand Champion or Grand Premier. Many of these have also competed for an entire show season and have earned regional and breed awards.
