The website for CFA
cat shows in the Atlanta, Georgia area. We are Atlanta Phoenix Cat
Society, Cotton States Cat Club, and Rebel Rousers Cat Club.
Atlanta Phoenix Cat Society shows are held in Cumming, Ga
(upGA400). Cotton States shows are in Duluth. Rebel Rousers'
shows are at the Gwinnett County Fairgrounds. All of our
shows have classes for kittens (four to eight months of age as
of the opening day of the show), championship classes (cats
eight months or older), and premiership classes (neutered and
spayed Championship cats over eight months of age). In
addition, Cotton States and Rebel Rousers,
also offer a household pet class, open to any domestic cat
over the age of four months. If the cat is over eight months
of age, it must be neutered or spayed. In addition, no cat may
be entered for competition in any category if it has been
shows are usually the first full weekend in May; Cotton States' shows are usually
held in November; and Atlanta Phoenix shows are the second
full weekend in March.
We hope you will
attend one of our shows to see the many different types of
pedigreed cats. All of these cats are registered with The Cat
Fanciers' Association, Inc. (CFA), the world's largest
registry of pedigreed cats. CFA recognizes 41 different breeds
or divisions of pedigreed cats. The official show season runs
from the beginning of May through the end of April. Cats and
their owners travel throughout the United States on any given
weekend to compete for the title of Best Cat. Georgia is
fortunate to have been the home of many national Best Cats,
Best Kittens, and Best Cats in Premiership over the years.
