Cats NSW Inc. representatives and officiating judges reserve the right without prejudice, to expel any exhibit from the show that appears to be in ill health or condition (including the presence of external parasites). Such decisions are final.
All entries must be completed in full on the Cats NSW Show Entry and Benching Slip and the show entry summary sheet that form part of the show schedule. All completed entries must be forwarded to the address as nominated in the show schedule. The show committee reserves the right to reject any entry without explanation.
For each exhibit, a legible photocopy or electronic copy of its current Certificate of Registration must accompany the show entry. The Certificate of Registration must be in the name of the exhibitor and be issued by that person’s governing body. Incomplete entries will be returned to the exhibitor. All exhibit’s Certificates of Registration must be issued by the Governing Body to which the exhibitor is a member.
ONLY CATS NSW Inc MEMBERS ARE PERMITTED TO ENTER “REGISTRATION PENDING” for Kittens under 4 months of age. Entries must include the “REGISTRATION PENDING SHOW ENTRY FORM” - see attached
Female cats obviously in kitten will not be judged. No kitten under the age of 12 weeks will be allowed entry to the venue. The age of each exhibit will be calculated to be the actual age on the day of the show or the first day of a multi-day show. Lactating queens shall not be benched without their litters.
KITTEN - NEW VACCINATION RECOMMENDATION Each kitten exhibit must have had at least one (1) Feline 3 vaccination not less than 14 days prior to the show. Documentary evidence i.e. a valid vaccination certiﬁcate from a Veterinarian must be produced to the veterinary ofﬁcer. Failure to do so shall result in rejection of the exhibit concerned.
It is highly recommended that all kittens have at least their 2nd vaccination not less than 14 days prior to the show due to the recent outbreak of Feline Panleukopenia Virus (FPV) in New South Wales
ADULT - NEW VACCINATION RULES APPLY Each adult exhibit must have a current vaccination certificate. The vaccination certificate must indicate a valid vaccination being administered no more than 3 years prior to the show
A Veterinarian or Veterinarian Nurse will be present at all Cats NSW shows. All exhibits entered in show including those on exhibition must be examined by a Vet, Vet Nurse or an appointed Steward before being benched into the show cages.
The Veterinarian shall disqualify any exhibit, which in their opinion is showing symptoms of any contagious disease or not be in show condition. The Vet’s decision is final. . If any exhibit is rejected because of an infectious or contagious disease they will disqualify all the other exhibits from the same cattery.
If a Vet is not present or has left the hall the Show Manager shall appoint two accredited stewards to check on exhibits and request the removal of any exhibit that is deemed not to be in show condition. All exhibits must have all their claws clipped prior to entry to the show hall and must be brought to the show confined in an appropriate container.
Exhibits cannot be removed from the Show or from the cage designated by the Show personnel without the consent of the Show Manager. All exhibits must remain in the venue until the conclusion of the show at the advertised time
If, at any time an exhibit shows itself to be difficult to handle or threatening, the Judge may call for the owner to remove the exhibit from its cage and place it on the Judge's table. The Judge will then decide if she/he wishes to judge that animal. This procedure protects your cat from any unnecessary handling. Should your exhibit be marked "Unable to be Judged" then it is automatically withdrawn from any other rings and cannot be shown again on the day. Should the judge consider the exhibit to be of poor temperament or in their opinion sufficiently difficult to handle, including excessively timid, the judge may withhold any awards at their discretion.
Poor sportsmanship will not be tolerated. The comfort of all exhibitors and judges is of paramount importance. One warning will be issued and if any further offences occur the exhibitor and their exhibits will be asked to leave the show.
An entrance fee may be payable by all members of the general public i.e. not an exhibitor or invited guest of Cats NSW Inc. If a member of the general public is deemed to be acting in a disruptive manner, that individual will be required by the Show Representative, to leave the show immediately. Cats NSW Inc. reserves the right to refuse entry to any member of the general public they feel may cause discomfort to their exhibitors.
Awards and prizes: All such cards, trophies placed on cages are the responsibility of the exhibitor and the Club regrets that it is not possible to replace any that may subsequently disappear from unattended cages. The Show Committee reserves the right to vary the prize list if necessary.
All complaints regarding a show must be submitted in writing and be accompanied by a fee of twenty dollars ($20). All complaints must be in the hands of the Show Manager or Show Secretary within seven (7) days following the Show. Complaints regarding the running of a Show will be not be considered by Cats NSW unless lodged in accordance with this rule.
All reasonable care will be taken of exhibits. Cats NSW and its affiliate Clubs, their officials and members cannot accept any responsibility for any loss or damage to any person, feline or property.
