~Cat Shows~

Why should you care if a breeder shows??
If a Scottish Fold does well in the shows, it's because it's tail is flexible, eyes are bright and round, body large and healthy, it's free from parasites and it's overall health is robust!  Scottish folds can get arthritis and fused joints with poor breeding practices.  Someone who succeeds in the shows does that with healthy and sound cats!  A Champion means very little in the cat world.  Look for Grand Champions and Regional/National Winners.  We have produced 33 Grands, 2 National Winners, 8 Regional Winners, 2 National 3rd Best of Breed Winners, 2 National 2nd Best of Breed Winners and 2 National Best of Breed Winners.

Knowledge: A CFA or TICA "Champion" (CH before the name) means very little (unlike in the dog show world).  Look for breeders with many Grand Champions (GC), Supreme Grand Champions (SGC--seen in TICA only), Regional Winners (RW) or National Winners (NW)!!
