Household Pet Class

Household pets are judged in one group without regard to sex, coat length, age, or color. There is no written standard for Household Pets, although the CFA Show Rules state that they may NOT be declawed, and if they are over eight(8) months of age they must be neutered or spayed. They are judged instead for their uniqueness, pleasing appearance, unusual markings, and sweet dispositions. Each household pet reflecting good health and vitality receives at Merit ward (red/white), and at the end of the judging, the best Household Pets are introduced in a final.

If you have a show-stopping, mixed breed charmer at home and are interested in joining the cat lovers who partake in the good fellowship of exhibiting at CFA shows, please explore our show schedule for a show near you, and call the listed entry clerk for further information to see if that show has a Household Pet Class. An entry form is available for downloading.
