Can I Show My Cat?

As well as pedigreed cats, many cat shows, including the Cotton States Cat Show, may also judge the Household Pet Class (HHP). Many of our local rescue groups in fact enter some of their residents in the HHP competition.

Is there a Youth Program?

Some cat shows offer the CFA Youth Feline Education Program (YFEP). The program is designed to allow youth to enjoy the cat fancy and excel at their own pace through the activities and age categories while enhancing their appreciation for felines and feline inspired professions. This year Cotton States will not be offering this program.
