Congrats to Cleo!! :ThumbsUp::Smile:

This is something I've been curious about, M2M - can you give a quick explanation about how the awards work? I've heard Champion, Grand, Supreme, etc...what is the difference?

Excellent.

Can I be really cheeky and ask how much it costs to show (on average) as we are about to start. PM me if you like.

CFA and TICA are different.
In CFA there are not many titles.
There are Premier and Champion.
Premier is for altered cats.
Champion is for whole cats.
After Premier there is Grand Premier.
I do not know TICA very well but Cleos breeder just send me something that explains everything.
The first Title is Champion
Then GC
Then DGC
Then TGC
Then QGC
Then SGC
Supreme Grand Champion is the highest.
I pay between 55-78 for the CFA shows for 1 cat.
TICA was 125 for 3 days and it was 1 cat.
Do you need any more info?

Do you want to show?
I think it could be fun and interesting! Mine would have to be in household pets, since they are all rescues and I don't have their papers. I am curious to see how they would do at a show. I know Walter isn't show quality (he's too furry) but don't they give more allowances for things like that in the household pets division? I'm really curious how Nelson and Mandy would show.

I've decided my next sphynx will be a registered kitten from a breeder, though. ...unless another rescue comes along before I have the money saved up...I've established how much of a sucker I am! :LOL:

In HHP they do not go by the standards so fur is ok.
I plan on getting another sphynx.
Wrinkles tail has fur and her breeder has never shown.
You should go for a purrbred.
I would have had a sphynx years ago but I kept taking kittens no one wanted.

Congrats, congrats, congrats!!!! When are you thinking of taking the plunge and getting an unaltered Sphynx to start your own cattery?
