                           SHOW RULES, PROCEDURES AND REGULATIONS

The show is held under the Rules of The Governing Council of the Cat Fancy and is open to all.
A copy of these Rules is obtainable from the GCCF Office at 5 Kings Castle Business Park, The
Drove, Bridgwater, Somerset TA6 4AG. These Rules must be read by all, for they are not repeated
herein, but will be strictly applied. Ignorance of any Rule will not be accepted as excuse of their breach.
The Committee reserve, to themselves, the right to:
a) Appoint other judges should those advertised be unable to fulfil their engagement, and to appoint
further judges should they be required.
b) Fix and limit the number of exhibits at the show.
c) To accept or refuse exhibit entry without giving reason.
d) Cancel, amalgamate or divide classes.
e) Publish a catalogue of the show containing information as to the exhibits and names and
addresses of exhibitors.
f ) Disqualify cats entered into the wrong classes by exhibitors.
g) Retain a percentage of the entry fees to cover essential expenses, in the event of the show
being cancelled for any reason.
h) No other animals or pets will be allowed into the Show hall other than exhibiting Cats, Kittens and
Neuters.
                               ELIGIBILITY OF EXHIBITS TO ENTER SHOW

PEDIGREE SECTION: All Cat, Kittens and Neuters of breeds recognised by, and registered with the
GCCF, (except those registered on the Reference Register) are eligible for entry in the competition. To
be effective for entry all registration and/or transfers must have reached the GCCF Office at least 21
days prior to the show. It is wise to enclose a stamped addressed postcard for acknowledgement of
registration/transfer applications, particularly for cats entered for shows, so that you will know that the
application has been received by the GCCF and on what date. No Cat or Kittens, entire or neutered,
born after 19.10.71, with one or both parents, grandparents or great-grand-parents unregistered shall be
eligible for entry into Open Classes.
NON-PEDIGREE SECTION: All unregistered Cats, Kittens and Neuters of unknown or unregistered
non-pedigree parentage are eligible for entry in the Non-Pedigree Section. All Non-Pedigree cats over
nine months of age must be neutered.
                              GENERAL GUIDELINES ON ENTERING SHOWS

Where possible, always complete your show entry form from your GCCF registration document (i.e.
Registration or Transfer Certificate) for the cat that is to be exhibited, printing the details carefully to
avoid any misinterpretation of your handwriting.
If you have not received your registration document at the time of entry, complete the show entry
form with the details from the pedigree, giving the first choice of name if it is a non-prefix registration,
and put RAF (Registration Applied For) or TAF (Transfer Applied For), or both, in the Regd. No. box. It
is wise to enclose a stamped self-addressed acknowledgement postcard with all registration and
transfer applications, particularly for cats entered for shows, so that you know that the application has
been received by the GCCF.
Try to keep a copy of your entry form — then, when you receive registration details and number,
check these against the entry form and notify the Show Manager(s) in writing of any differences in the
details as well as giving the registration number, if applicable. This may not be in time for the printing
of the Show Catalogue, but the Show Manager(s) should attach your letter to your entry form which will
save unnecessary notification of discrepancies when the show is checked. All Catalogue errors are
checked against the original entry form and any exhibitors’ letters are used for reference. Show
managements are permitted to accept corrections, at their own discretion, up to the close of the show
(on show day); such a change must not be a change of exhibit.
If you are entering several cats from your household and the registered owners (exhibitors) differ within
that household/family, check with the Show Manager(s) whether using one entry form is acceptable or
not and, if it is, indicate very clearly which exhibitor owns which cat, ensuring all owners sign the entry
form. It may be less confusing and more acceptable to the Show Manager(s) for each owner to use
separate entry forms, but joint owners of an exhibit/exhibits should always use the same form and
both must sign.
                              STATUS OF ERRORS - WHAT TO EXPECT

MINOR ERRORS. These warrant a notification for your reference if the error occurs more than once
and it is apparent that registration details were available at the time of entry or before the date of the
show. Continuous repetition of the same error after notification will be referred to the Executive
Committee.
Examples of minor errors include:
(a)minorspelling errors
(b) separation of names that should be one word, and vice versa
(c) administrative/breeder's prefix omitted from, or partially incorrect name given
for exhibit (revised12.1.95)
(d) overseas title preceding the name of an exhibit, sire or dam, etc.
(e) full breed number known but not given
(f) Sire and Dam reversed (revised 5.1.94) or named incorrevtly (revised 12.1.95)
(g) breeder joint when single and vice versa (revised 5.1.94)
INCORRECT DATE OF BIRTH. This is usually classed as a minor spelling error unless it affects an
entry into classes based on age groups, when it could warrant disqualification of the exhibit from such
classes; but if the incorrect date of birth affects the age suitability as a whole, then the exhibit will be
disqualified from the show.
NB AGE LIMITS: Kittens - not less than 14 weeks and under 9 calendar months on date of show.
Adults - not less than 9 calendar months on date of show
INCORRECT NAME OF EXHIBIT/OWNER/BREEDER. If registration/transfer details were obviously
available at the time of entry or before the date of the show, disqualification is inevitable. The
following discrepancies are those which usually arise:
EXHIBIT • Totally incorrect name
• Incomplete Name/unregistered name added
• Totally incorrect name or names
REGISTERED OWNER • Joint when they should be single and vice versa
(EXHIBITOR) • Declaration not signed by registered owner(s)
N.B. The exhibitor(s) must be the the registered owner(s) of the cat and not necessarily the person who
actually takes the cat to the show
BREEDER • Totally incorrect name or names
N.B. The breeder of a cat is always the registered owner of the dam on the date of the cat's birth.
REGISTRATION/TRANSFER NOT RECEIVED BY GCCF 21 DAYS BEFORE THE DATE OF THE
SHOW:
These entries will be disqualified. Remember the effective date of all registrations and transfers is the
first date of valid receipt by the GCCF and if you enclose your own stamped addressed
acknowledgement card with your application form, this will be stamped with the GCCF office date of
receipt.
TRANSFER OF EXHIBIT FROM EXHIBITOR TO A NEW OWNER RECEIVED BY GCCF MORE THAN
21 DAYS BEFORE THE DATE OF THE SHOW. Entries such as these will also be disqualified as the
exhibitor’s entry form becomes invalid.
IINCORRECT CLASS ENTRY. These will be disqualified from the class concerned — so always check
with the Show Manager if in doubt about which classes to enter. If a breed number is changed officially,
it is important that you notify the show Manager immediately.
CAT REGISTERED ON THE REFERENCE REGISTER. No cat registered on this Register is eligible to
be shown and therefore these entries will be disqualified.
The only exception to this is when a new breed becomes recognised: and then, cats of the breed may
be shown even if they are registered on the Reference Register as long as this was the only reason for
the Reference registration.
Exhibitors may appeal against any disqualification resulting from show checking, giving their reasons.
The appeal will be referred to the Executive Committee if considered valid and, if not, a letter of
explanation will be sent to the exhibitor(s). The above advice is aimed to keep your show entries
trouble-free,not to mention the show checking.
                                          ON ARRIVAL AT THE SHOW
Exhibits will be received at the entrance of the show hall from 8.00 am until 9.30 am on the morning of
the show. Exhibits must be brought to the show in boxes, baskets or suitable containers, accompanied
by their owner/representative.
Each exhibit will be examined by the Honorary Veterinary Surgeons, who are authorised to exclude any
exhibit they consider unfit. No exhibit may be penned before being examined. Vetting In Slips and
exhibitors’ passes will be issued at vetting in. Tallies will not be issued at this show.
All exhibits must have a current vaccination certificate against FIE, FVR & FCV (cat flu). The full course,
in accordance with the manufacturer's recommendations, must have been completed more than seven
days before the show. The certificate must have been issued by a vet practice/hospital & the last entry
signed by a Vet.Surgeon or by a listed Vet. Nurse under the direction of a Vet. Suregon. Note that
HOMEOPATHIC VACCINATION cannot be accepted. You will be asked to produce a current vaccination
certificate for each exhibit.
Exhibits must have clean ears and coats free from pests. No pregnant or lactating queen, nor queen
who has kittened within 12 weeks of this show may be exhibited. No exhibit that has been declawed will
be accepted, neither will male cats which are either monorchid or cryptorchid.
Unfit exhibits must be removed by their owners and payment forfeited. If in the Vet Surgeon’s opinion it
is desirable, all other exhibits from the same cattery/owner thereof shall be debarred from attending the
show. The Veterinary Surgeon’s decision is final.
Where an exhibit has been rejected or disqualified by a Veterinary Surgeon, the show managers shall
obtain the reasons and accordingly notify the GCCF within 48 hrs. of the show, ensuring that a copy of
the rejection form is forwarded to the exhibitors concerned.
The procedure for veterinary clearance is clearly stated in the GCCF Show Rules. However, exhibitors
whose cats have been rejected at shows should note the following points:
a) When sending a Clearance Certificate to the GCCF Veterinary Officer, please include your copy
of the rejection slip.
b) Do not send certificates by recorded delivery as this can cause delays in receipt. If
acknowledgement of receipt is required, please enclose a stamped addressed postcard for
signature acknowledging receipt.
c) Exhibitors should not attend shows until they have received a letter accepting and confirming
clearance from the Veterinary Officer.

                             PRESENTATION AND BENCHING OF EXHIBITS
Take pride in presenting your exhibit. Be sure it is comfortable, warm and relaxed. Exhibitors must provide
each exhibit with clean, white blankets, (plain woven, not cellular, without distinctive edgings or markings) of
reasonable size to lie on (white Vet-bed or like material may be used if preferred), a white food bowl and
food, a white water bowl with fresh water and a white sanitary tray, with the exhibit’s usual litter. All show
equipment can be purchased at the show. Food containers must be removed from the pen before judging
commences at 10.00 am and can be returned after 12.30 pm. Water must be left in the pen for the duration
of the show. Hot water bottles or heat reflecting material are the only heating devices allowed and must be
concealed by the blanket. None of the equipment in competition pens must bear any distinguishing marks.
No written or printed matter of any kind, other than official notices and award cards may be put onto
competitive pens, except with the permission of the show managers. “For Sale” notices are not allowed.
The use of grooming aids in the show hall, other than the use of a clean brush and comb or cloth is
prohibited. No powder or grooming substance may be left in the coat of exhibits.
Using products to enhance the colour of an exhibit is forbidden, and the use of any substance which change
a cat's appearance or physical reaction is forbidden and will lead to disqualification, This includes Skulcap
and Valerian Compunds and Rescue Remedy.
Exhibits received into the show hall cannot be removed, without the permission of the show managers, prior
to the closure of the show. Failure to observe this rule will lead to disqualification and forfeiture of any prize
money and awards won.
The show closes at 5.00 pm or earlier at the show managers’ discretion. There will be no early removal
passes issued.
                                              JUDGING AND JUDGES
Judging will commence at 10.00 am and exhibitors will be requested to clear the hall at this time until
12.30 pm, whilst the Open Classes are being judged. Judges are empowered to withhold any prize, award
or certificate in any class if the exhibits do not, in their opinion, possess sufficient merit. Prizes will be
awarded from the Judge’s award slip and not from any catalogue or prize card. A Judge’s decision is
final. An exhibitor may not approach a Judge, nor enter into conversation with a Judge, until that
Judge’s engagement is complete.

                                           COUNTERSIGNATURES
In the event of a change of Judge of an Open Class occurring after the closing date of the show,
providing the exhibitor informs the show manager prior to judging that a certificate has previously been
awarded by the replacement judge, the show manager shall appoint one other judge who shall judge the
cat and if the cat is considered worthy countersign the certificate which shall then count towards
Champion/Premier status. if the replacement judge at the first show has also been previously booked
for a subsequent show, the closing date of which is before the date of the first show and where the
actual entry has been made and received before the date of the first show, then at the subsequent
show this judges can be regarded as a replacement judge for the purposes of requesting a countersignature.

                                  EXHIBITS FOR ASSESSMENT CLASSES.

Cats, kittens and neuters of those breeds with Preliminary recognition must enter the appropriate
Assessment Class, and up to three applicable Miscellaneous or Club classes. Assessment classes are
not competitive. Exhibits will be assessed and awarded a 'Merit' certificate if considered, by the judge,
to meet the approved Standard of Points. PLEASE NOTE: Exhibitors must provide, with their entry
form, a copy of the GCCF approved Standard of Points for each exhibit they are entering into
Assessment Classes.
                                              IMPERIAL TITLES

In order to enter the ‘Imperial’ class your Cat must be a Grand Champion or Grand Premier. Once a
cat has attained Grand Champion/Premier status, it may then enter a maximum of two of the
following three classes: Imperial, Champion or Open. (You may enter only one of the classes if
you wish BUT your cat will still automatically be considered for Best of Breed)
CORRESPONDENCE
All correspondence must be accompanied by a stamped addressed envelope if a reply is required. Any
complaint related to the Show must be forwarded to the Show Managers within seven days of the show.
To prevent disappointment it is recommended that exhibitors enclose a stamped addressed postcard
with their entries, to be returned as acknowledgement of receipt of entries.
NOTICE OF CHANGE
An announcement in the official journal of the GCCF of any alterations or additions made to this
schedule or in these regulations shall be deemed sufficient notice.

                               SHOW WITHDRAWALS AND ALTERATIONS

The last date for withdrawal of a cat from a show is the advertised closing date for entries at
that show. After this date the cat/s concerned may not be withdrawn, regardless of the circumstances,
from the show and the Rule about entering shows within 13 days will apply. This ruling
does not prevent Show Managers from returning entries after the closing date of the show if they are
unable to accept them into the show because the show is full. There will be no refund of entry fees
after closing date. Withdrawal/substitution requests must be received in writing before the
closing date. Corrections to your entry form can be made on show day up to the close of the show.
                                   INFORMATION FOR EXHIBITORS

Your attention is drawn to the following notes:
Ensure that vaccination certificates are readily available at vetting-in to avoid delay and are properly
completed and clearly indicate the identity of the exhibit and the owner to avoid confusion which may
result in rejection from the show under Section A of the GCCF Code for Veterinary Inspection.
The use of any product, including shampoos, grooming products, or stress remedies which change the
cats normal appearance or physical reaction are strictly prohibited under Section 4, Rule 14.
The use of toxic disinfectants, aerosols and sprays within the show hall is prohibited.
The club welcome advertisements but draw to the attention of exhibitors that advertising attendance at
future events could lead to disqualification.
Owners are liable for the cost of any veterinary treatments carried out to their cat(s) during their
absence from the show hall.
Top-opening carriers are recommended for use at cat shows.
Any cat which cannot be safely removed from its carrier on arrival will not be vetted-in.
Any cat which cannot be safely handled will not be judged for Best in Show.
Cats which are not normally resident with their registered owner should be transferred into the ownership
of their keeper if they are to be shown. Exhibitors are reminded that in the event of rejection, all
exhibits in the same registered ownership may also be rejected and clearance may be required for both
households.
Cats registered on the Reference Register may not be shown in competition, unless they were
registered before their breed had preliminary recognition and are now considered as if registered on the
experimental register.
