The Cat Shows


We see few Thais introduced in shows! Although the race is recognized, it is appreciated little among most of judges. Their votes go to Siamese said "modern".

There is no cat-like federation in Belgium, thus no standart says "Belgian" for our cats, they are judged according to the source of the judge. The Belgian and French judges go with the criteria of the standart "LOOF" (France). The judges of German or different expression, will have the criteria of the "WCF", (World Cat Federation). It is thus easy to include/understand, which pleased with the one is not especially appreciated by the other!


We present our cats in show in order to confront them with the standard of race established. We obtain the title of "Champion" after having presented them 3 times in class CAC. Then, they continue in class CACIB ("International Champion"), the criteria are more strict in this category, to become International Champion, it is necessary to obtain 3 titles CACIB including 1 in a foreign country (out of Belgium).

Then comes class CAGCI, i.e. International Great champion. To obtain this title, we present our cats twice abroad (out of Belgium) and once in Belgium. Finally the class CACE comes which is the Championship European. Our cats must be presented in three different countries of which once in Belgium. We have the Great Championship European then ("CAGCE"), 4 different countries of which one in Belgium. And finally the Championship of World (CACM), one then needs titles in 3 different countries including one except Europe.

It is true that, of opinion of cat, the day in show is long and testing.

We had the happiness during the presentation of our cats to rise several times on the podium because having winned:
- Special Awards
- Best Variety
- Best in Show / Best of Best
It is warm to us in the heart every time.


With the absence of cat federation in Belgium, and thus any coherence between the many ones and various Belgian clubs, these clubs can have a divergent policy the ones compared to the others.

I stated you higher the steps to be followed when we in cat show in order to will obtain titles of qualification. Thus as many titles in Begium, but also abroad for the international titles. What I find completely normal. Eh well, appear that certain Belgian clubs authorize their members with only attending all the cat shows in Belgium, and consequently, international titles starting from a certain quota of titles deliver. In this manner, we can find cats champion of Europe, or even champion of the World, and not having never left the Belgian territory!!!!! I find completely that stupid and ridiculus.

For my part, I am proud to show my cats abroad, like this, one is confronted with other judges and other cats. What adds a little pepper to the competition. Those which remain in Belgium, are eternally confronted with the same cats and judged by the same people. With the limit, they do not look at any more the cat that they judge, since they known it of the front time!!!
