       ONLY. THEREFORE, NO KITTEN UNDER 4 MONTHS MAY BE ENTERED, WHETHER FOR COMPETITION OR
         EXHIBITION. EXHIBITS NOT PREVIOUSLY SHOWN MUST PROVIDE PROOF OF INITIAL VACCINATION.


RULE 5: REGISTRATION - Every cat or kitten exhibited at a show held under these rules in any championship
classes, premier classes or open or registered classes, must have been registered with the SACR prior to the
closing date for entries to the show. If transferred to a new owner, the transfer must have been duly registered
with the SACR prior to the closing date for entries to a show. Any kittens entered on a show and sold after the

RULE 7: FRACTIOUS CATS
7.1 If, in the opinion of the Show Manager and the judge concerned, a cat cannot be taken out of its pen, it must not be
judged. A judge or steward shall report such incidents concerning fractious cats to the show manager immediately. The
onus is then on the Show Manager to take the necessary action. If such fractiousness is confirmed after enquiry at the
show, such incident shall be reported by inclusion in the list of main awards circulated to all Clubs, the Secretary of
SACC and the Registrar within 3 days of such show. After 3 (three) disqualifications for fractiousness or proving
unhandleable an exhibit may no longer be shown anywhere.

7.2 If a cat, during judging growls, bites or in any way threatens its handlers, the judge shall cease judging it, mark its
award card and/or slip “UTH” (unable to handle), and not place or award it. The show manager shall record such UTH
results and report all incidents to the SACR with his major awards list. After three UTH incidents (a show counting as
one incident) under three different judges, the cat may no longer be shown at SACC shows. The SACR shall keep the
necessary records and inform the owner and all show managers of cats thus not allowed to be shown anymore.

THE RIGHT TO REQUEST A SPECIFIC JUDGE NOT TO JUDGE THAT EXHIBIT AND ONLY AT THE SHOW MANAGER'S
DISCRETION MAY BE ALLOCATED ANOTHER JUDGE.

from the show manager. In a case where an exhibitor has removed his exhibit without prior approval, the show
manager may in his discretion declare any awards gained null and void and advise the SA Cat Registrar accordingly,
and/or impose a fine on the exhibitor, and/or impose a ban on the exhibitor’s future show participation at shows held by
the hosting club at whose show the offence occurred.
RULE 25: EXHIBITOR BOUND BY RULES - A person entering a cat for any show held under these rules shall, by such
act, be deemed to have agreed to refer any question or dispute to the committee of the club concerned and to abide

RULE 28: COMMUNICABLE DISEASES - No exhibitor shall exhibit a cat or kitten which to his/her knowledge has, at
the date of the show, been exposed to any specified communicable disease within the period of 30 days prior to
the date of the show, and no cat or kitten may be exhibited if the exhibitor had had any such illness in his or her
home or cattery during that period. In the case of a communicable disease having occurred in a home or cattery, a
clearance certificate will be required from a fully qualified veterinary surgeon. Any exhibitor, who, in the opinion
of the committee, shall have made a false declaration in respect of the above, will be liable to serve penalties under
the powers of the committee. Owners of rejected exhibits shall not personally attend any show within the
prescribed period of 30 days unless in the possession of a veterinary clearance certificate which must be exhibited
to the show manager on demand.

groups, other affiliated members, show managers and other show officials and judges, who by their voluntary
participation in SACC activities, subject themselves to it’s various rules, in order to preserve the integrity of this

GC of SACC RULES AND REGULATIONS - DISCIPLINE: RULE 29 (portion) - The GC of SACC shall have exclusive
jurisdiction of discipline over clubs, breed groups, other affiliated members, show managers and other show
officials and judges, who by their voluntary participation in SACC activities, subject themselves to it’s various
rules, in order to preserve the integrity of this Organisation in the accomplishment of its objective.

IMPORTANT: The decision of the veterinarian officiating on the day is final. Should it come to the attention of the
Show management that an owner has knowingly exhibited a cat, which comes from a home or cattery were there
are health problems, the owner will be reported to the ethics committee and suspended from showing pending the
outcome of the enquiry. They will be banned from showing for a year if found to have made dishonest statements
to the Show Manager and their names will be published. No kitten shall be allowed to travel more than 80km to or
from a show unless its owner or his/her accredited representative accompanies it. A queen may not be exhibited
within eight (8) weeks of kittening., if she is a nursing mother, or she is obviously in kitten. No declawed cat or
kitten may be accepted in any class.
        It is your responsibility to ensure that all information supplied on the entry form is correct and complete .
Should your cat change status in a ring, it will automatically be transferred into the next class. To enable us to do this, it
is of utmost importance that you supply us with the correct details of previous award/s given including the name of the
  awarding judge/s give us the cat’s correct title - be it champion, premier etc. Please give us up to date titles of your
  cat’s parents. Please read the conditions and rules set out herein, before completing the entry form. Use a separate
      entry form for each cat or kitten, and do not forget to tick, where indicated. Incorrect forms will be returned.

Please note that exhibitors must provide and remove their own bedding (no tunnels), litter trays, litter and water bowls.
 We suggest that you use a “Tupperware” type container with a lid to ease transport of litter before and after the show.
Only white and transparent litter trays that take up less than half of the show cage will be allowed. This arrangement is
more hygienic, saves a lot of work for the show manager and gives you the opportunity to use the litter your cat is used
                                     to and the tray you think is suitable for your cat.


  ALL EXHIBITS MUST BE BROUGHT TO THE SHOW IN ESCAPE PROOF CONTAINERS, WHICH SHOULD BEAR THE EXHIBIT’S
                  CAGE NUMBER. CATS ON LEADS OR CARRIED BY THE OWNER WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED.

   IF A CAGE IS LOCKED WHEN A JUDGE OR STEWARD WANTS TO REMOVE AN EXHIBIT FOR JUDGING, THE EXHIBIT WILL
      AUTOMATICALLY BE DISQUALIFIED FROM THAT RING. NO ATTEMPT WILL BE MADE TO FIND THE EXHIBITOR.
