June 1 - Ballots for CFA Officers & RDs must be received in the Central Office

CFA Board of Directors Meeting


The Board met via teleconference on May 15, 2012.





President Jerry Hamza commented that the philosophy behind the Novice class is to provide a sneak preview of CFA to those who register/ show in other associations in the hopes that they will want to join our ranks


Effective with the 2012-2013 show season, the Central Office will enforce the show rules regarding Novices.


Show Rule 1.19a will be revised to make it clear that a Novice may only compete at one show. If there is a 6x6 event that weekend, the Novice may only be shown at one of those shows.


Effective retroactive to May 1, 2012, Novices will not be included in the count for scoring Regional and National awards. Novices will compete for and be eligible for Grand points. They will appear in the judges' books as Champions, just as Opens are, and be eligible for final wins as Champions. Once the cat is registered with CFA, it can have any grand points earned at its Novice show credited.

 "I-Cats" Attend their First Giant Pet Expo

by Karen Lane


Not since the National Show in Indianapolis have so many I-Cats come together.


On April 20, 21 & 22 in Costa Mesa, California, ten of our "I-Cats" were spotlighted at the World's Largest American Family Pet Expo.


Our Iams sponsor asked for our "I-Cats" to be part of their presence at this Expo; along with a CFA Booth, featuring Joan Miller, and the Winn Foundation booth.


This was an exciting event for ten dedicated "I-Cats".


Iams, and their media people, produced large "V-Burst" photos of each cat and our "I-Cat Team" all wore the familiar orange color Iams polo shirts. "I-Cats" in attendance were Linda Bartley, Diane Bove, Nancy Jo Bueno, Tracey Dalton, Sandy Faust, Ginger Gunlock, Chris Makl, Shirley Peet, Mark Rowe & Mike Shelton. All ten of our "I-Cat" people showed great dedication and enthusiasm entertaining our visitors at this Expo. Unlike most cat shows, visitors at this Expo were non-stop and our "I-Cat" people wore smiles all day long; and "hats-off" to these ten wonderfully patient and friendly cats.


We had a tremendous number of attendees stop and visit with our I-Cats for three very long days. In addition, Joan Miller used our "I-Cats" to highlight her presentations.


Our cats were petted, held and entertained thousands of visitors. This was a tremendous opportunity to reach out and bring the joy of pedigree cat ownership to people who have never seen such beautiful cats; and to tell our CFA story.


The "I-Cat" program is now 18 months old, and it has been a great journey. We have had the opportunity to touch so many people. This program is a great tool for CFA and we look forward to growing this program each and every year. We happily thank the Iams people for making this great program possible.


The "I-Cat" program is part of the CFA Ambassador Program.

New Excitement for the I-Cat Program


Thanks to our friends from Iams, we not only attend cat shows but Expos and more events are on the horizon for these special people and their delightful cats.


The dedication is amazing both from our I-Cats and from Iams. The latest addition to the I-Cat program is the "I-Cat Trading Card". They were introduced at an Expo in California and Hawaii this last month.


The I-Cat program was launched in October, 2010, about eighteen months ago and this program continues to grow and reach out to the public.

Eleven of our I-Cats received the first group of Trading Cards and the rest will receive them shortly, as our budget allows.


The public loved getting them and it allows the public to carry home a part of CFA and a memory of their I-Cat experience.


Trading Cards, sort of like "The Big League"

Cat Shows US!! © 2012


Many of you are familiar with Cat Shows US!!©2012 which lists shows and provides links to online club flyers and other important information.  CFA is now partnered with Cat Shows US!! © 2012  It will list all CFA licensed shows in the future.  Kathryn Brady will continue to maintain the site as she has since its inception.  Clubs should take advantage of inexpensive ways to advertise their show such as the web and social media (Facebook, Twitter, etc.).  Cat Shows US!! © 2012 is one more way to let folks know your club has a show coming up.  Exhibitors should look at this site and make it an important part of scheduling your shows throughout the show season. 


Seacoast Cat Club



Club Secretary Marilyn Conde sent some photos of their publicity efforts to pull in gate at their show earlier this month in New Hampshire.  They placed ads on the local buses and trolleys.  Marilyn wrote:


"I thought you might like to see these and maybe use one in your monthly newsletter as a way of letting show committees see what can be done. I don't know if the sign made the difference, but we had a wonderful gate this past weekend: 890 spectators. Last year, we did use a sign, but we had just 507 visitors. This year we included agility and Jill Archibald did a wonderful job. If there were no participants, she had her little Mau run the course so there was always something going on in the back of the arena and there were always people gathered around. It was great.


We were also able to get coverage from the local newspaper, The Concord Monitor. When they support us, the people come; when they don't , we have a more difficult time. I was able to arrange a phone interview with Jill and the Monitor. Apparently, this ran in the Sunday paper the week before the show. I'm sure that helped. I will send a Letter to the Editor as well as a personal note to the City Editor thanking the paper for its support."

2012 Annual

2012 AnnualCFA Annual - Fun with Sponsors

There are many facets to CFA's Annual each year - to conduct the business of CFA, to serve as a forum to debate the important issues that face the organization, to celebrate our accomplishments as individuals and as a group, to provide a venue to enjoy the company of friends, old and new, from here and around the world, and to have fun. This year, we want to ramp up the "fun" factor and provide a wicked-good time for all, which will happen, thanks in large part, to the incredible support we have received from our corporate sponsors. For example:

  • Iams is hosting our Friday Night Hospitality - the Iams Catswoods Casino. We will have our gaming room set in the large ballroom, complete with a DJ and 13 professional tables and dealers for those looking for action, and the Casino Lounge in the junior ballroom with live entertainment and lounge seating for a more relaxed time - be sure to check for Show Times.
  • Royal Canin is supporting our Thursday Night Pub Night - the Pickled Kitty Public House, where we'll have lots of fun games and prizes, a signature cocktail, pub food and a Piano Bar with an open mic.
  • In addition to the ever popular neck wallets they provide each year, Sturdi Products is donating some fabulous prizes, as is Red Roof - but you need to come and play to be eligible, as they say, you have to be in it to win it
  • Pet Partners Insurance is providing us with a cooling off period Friday afternoon with an Ice Cream Bar.
  • Dr. Elsey's is sponsoring our Friday Delegate Luncheon. For only $10 per person (includes tax and tip) you can enjoy a relaxing lunch with friends. The buffet will run the gamut from soup to nuts - an assortment of sandwiches, salads, drinks and deserts.. However, tickets must be purchased in advance via the reservation form (same one used for banquet reservations). The form and the complete luncheon menu can be found on the annual website - Click on the Event tab for the luncheon information. You can pick up your pre-paid luncheon tickets at delegate check-in. Admittance to the luncheon without prior reservation will be $15 Cash Only pay at the door - space permitting.
These are just some of the examples of our corporate support. When you see one of our corporate reps in Quincy (and many of them will be present) be sure to go up and say "thanks" for helping to make this year's annual a great one.

See you in Quincy.

What's HotLegislation

by Joan Miller, CFA Legislative Information Liaison



Federal licensing of cat breeders - a heads up !!


The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) announced a new proposal, on May 10, 2012, to regulate those who sell pets directly to pet buyers. As soon as the proposal is published in the Federal Register we will have 60 days to provide comments to "Docket No. APHIS-2011-0003".  This proposal will be analyzed by the CFA Legislative Group and discussed with others. We plan to develop strategy and guidance as soon as possible. Some background will help fanciers understand the impact of the rulemaking.


Attempts to expand the federal Animal Welfare Act regulation have been going on for about 15 years.  This proposal is the latest version based on animal activists' claims that animals "sold sight-unseen over the Internet, via phone and mail based businesses" is a threat to the health of pets. They and APHIS believe that many breeders, currently exempted from Federal regulation, are selling sick animals raised in substandard facilities with no oversight.  They want to change the definition of the "pet store" exemption (which now includes all cat breeders who only sell pets directly to buyers and not to dealers or pet stores). This new proposed exemption would apply only to businesses and residences "where buyers physically enter to observe the animals available for sale prior to purchasing them" Any breeder selling pets without the buyer entering their home would have to be regulated by the USDA/APHIS if they own more than 4 breeding females.  Read more...

 Clerking Program


Cheryl2The Online clerking test has been distributed to clerks who have paid their biennial dues. If you are a licensed clerk, or have completed your requirements to become a clerk, and want to take the test, please make sure you have paid! As soon as payment is received, you will be on the list to receive the link to the online test.

However, if you do not wish to take the test online, you can request a hard copy of the test to be sent to you. You will probably receive it in approximately 1-2 weeks from the request. Simply respond to your email for the online testing information.

To date, over 98% of the participants who have taken the test online, have received a grade of 90% or higher! Those are great statistics, and we hope to see more of them!

In regards to the due date of the Clerking test - due to the priority of the end-of-year scoring by the Central Office staff, the clerking test due date is scheduled to be extended to August 1.

If you need to know the status of your evaluations, you will need to contact the Clerking Administrator at Central Office, and if you have any test questions, please send them to

New Survey by the Makers of Meow Mix Tender Centers™ Cat Food Reveals Americans Are Very Secure in the Strong Bond They Have with Their Felines


SAN FRANCISCO - March 13, 2012 - Are cats man's new best friend? Perhaps! New data uncovers pet parents share a powerful bond with their furry friends in a relationship only they understand. In a new study conducted by Kelton Research, pet parents were asked to reveal their love of and tender center toward their cat. The results were purrfect - 31 percent of respondents would rather speak with their cat after a long day than their best friend, children, or parents. And it's most likely because one third (33 percent) believe they communicate better with their cat than their significant other. 



Some cat parents have attempted to pinpoint what their cats' celebrity voice would sound like. According to the survey, 18 percent admittedly think if their cat could talk to them, they would sound like popular talk show host Ellen Degeneres. Thirteen percent say Fran Drescher best describes their cats' inner voice, 12 percent say Sean Connery, nine percent say Kathie Lee Gifford, and eight percent say Jay Leno.

Region 2



Remembering JIM KILBORN 6-22-1922 - 5-3-2012

 Jim Kilborn was one of the early pioneers in the Pacific Northwest cat fancy and he will be remembered for much more than his love of judging and the cats. Jim, with his devoted family, put on CFA shows, donated time to 4-H kids and educated all about the early years in the cat fancy. He always had something good to say about people and this in itself is a characteristic of the type of man he was. Even during his illness, Jim would come to the shows with Marj and he was always smiling and cheerful and loved to share stories about the cat fancy, both about the good old days as well as what changes have been made. To say he will be missed is an understatement. Jim was one of a kind and those who were fortunate enough to have known him can share the many memories about him in the years to come. He will be missed.

At the show this weekend in Issaquah, WA, a moment of silence was held for Jim. Heartfelt condolences go to Marj, Linda and all other
members of the family. While the NWR is a large region, please know that we are with the family in spirit and hope that as many fanciers as
possible can communicate with the family and/or be in attendance at his service.

For those asking:
In lieu of flowers, Marj and the family has asked that contributions
be sent to the following not for profit organizations which are tax

NOAH Pet Adoption & Spay/Neuter Center (this is a no kill shelter)
31300 Brandstrom Road
Stanwood, WA 98292


815 South Vassault St.
Tacoma, WA 98465

Rest in Peace, Jim

One other thing ....

We are planning to have more of this type of events at shows, and we hope it can spread throughout CFA. It doesn't cost anything, and it helps us as well as those the food banks supp
