Categories in the exhibitions WCF

In this page we will try to explain the different categories that can be presented to our cat.

In the table are the categories with detailed explanation of each one, but we will give some details generic before.

The first class that can expose a cat depends on your age, if you have between 3 and 6 months(kitten), if you have between 6 and 10 months (junior), if you have more than 10 months(opened). When you start your championship adult is getting to titles, so it can be submitted to a higher class

Eye!!!! The classes in which it appears the term premior, premier, neutered, or neutral, are for cats neutered.

This way, you could differences of two routes depending on whether or not neutered.

Not neutered : Class 16 CACP -> Class 15 CACJ -> Class 13 CAC -> Class 11 CACIB -> Class 9 CAGCIB -> Class 7 CACE -> Class 5 GCACE -> Class 3 CACM -> Class 1 P. H

Neutered : Class 16a CAPP -> Class 15a CAPJ -> Class 14 CH -> Class 12 CAPIB -> Class 10 CAGPIB -> Class 8 CAPE -> Class 6 GCAPE -> Class 4 CAPM -> Class 2 P. H

For example, in the case of a gata whole (not neutered) , when it is a puppy you can compete in as many exposures as you want, as long as you have the range between the ages of 3 and less than 6 months, the same thing when you are young. To meet the 10 months of age will come into class open(CAC),after three exposures with 3 different judges, you will get the title of Champion and will compete for the next category , International Champion, once achieved, the title of this category, you will be able to compete for the next, and so on.
