Entries: Properly completed must be submitted by exhibitors in the form of an official CFA entry form or facsimile, or an entry sent online (see link at web site above) following such entry form, with all information except signature typed or hand-printed. The use of the online entry form is interpreted as an official entry in this CFA show, and your email address on the online entry form is considered to be your signature per CFA Show Rule 6.20. If you are faxing or using the online entry form, please confirm receipt. No phone entries accepted. Each entry except faxes or online entries – extra fee only for faxes – must be accompanied by the full entry fee. All fax or online entries must be paid in full within 10 days of receipt or prior to the start of the show, whichever is first. Club shall charge $25 for entry fee nonpayment beyond the 10-day limit in CFA Show Rule 6.21. All checks must be paid in U.S. funds. No refunds will be given once your entry has been received or for failure to bench. Limit one benching / agent request per exhibitor.

Owners of novices can contact the entry clerk for a temporary registration number.

Exhibitor Information: Benching cages are minimum 22"W by 22"D by 20"H. No litter pans will be provided – we remind exhibitors to bring their own. All claws of all entries must be clipped prior to benching. No declawed entries are permitted. Cats or kittens should be clean and free of fungus, fleas, ear mites, and any contagious or infectious illness. There will be no veterinarian inspection prior to benching. It is strongly advised that all cats or kittens entered or present in the show hall be inoculated before entry by a licensed veterinarian against feline panleukopenia (formerly known as feline distemper or feline infectious enteritis), feline rhinotracheitis, calici viruses and rabies. It is also strongly recommended that cats and kittens be tested and found negative for FeLV before entry. The State of New Hampshire mandates current rabies inoculation for all cats and health certificates current within 10 days for cats/kittens being sold; it is advisable that you bring your cat's certificate(s). No kitten under the age of 4 months shall be permitted in the show hall. Only benched cats or kittens may be present in the show hall – none may be confined to carriers, either displayed or under cages. All cats or kittens for sale or lease must be benched in the benching area, and must be eligible for CFA registration. The person offering the cat or kitten for sale must have an entry in the show and must ensure an enclosed, secured carrier is used for the transport of the cat being sold. Any sales activity is subject to the approval of the show management. Exhibitors must transport cats into and out of the show hall in an enclosed, secured carrier. No exhibitor may leave cats or kittens in the show hall overnight. First-time exhibitors should contact the show manager for assistance.
