Learning about cat shows can be confusing. That why we’re here to help!

You are a new exhibitor in the world of showing pedigreed cats. Or you’re a new breeder trying to learn about your breed and setting up a cattery. And you have LOTS of questions. Good news – The Cat Fanciers’ Association Mentor and NewBee Program was created just for new exhibitors like you. We’re here to help guide you through the hobby that we love – and hope that you’ll love too!

You have questions…

How do I enter a cat show? How do I even prepare for a cat show? What do I do when I get there?
Every new person in the cat fancy has asked themselves these and hundreds of other questions. It’s a completely new-to-you world, but you’ll love being with folks who love cats just as much as you do – just as soon as you learn the answers!

We have answers!

This website will begin to help you find the answers to your questions about CFA and its shows. Take a look around and you’ll find both answers and valuable resources and links to more resources.

And we have a community!

Do you need answers to questions that you can’t find on the website? Need some encouragement? Maybe see if you can find some friendly folks who will be at the show that you’ll be going to? We have a closed Facebook group that’s open to only new CFA exhibitors or exhibitors-to-be so that they can get the support that they need in a community environment. Interested?
