O expozitie felina WCF

cum functioneaza si ce se intampla

www.wcf-online.de

O expozitie felina, indiferent de care federatie este organizata, este în primul rând o competi?ie de frumuse?e. Pisicile sunt pregatite atent, sp?late, periate, aranjate, pentru a o face cat se poate de frumoasa. Mul?i expozanti isi preg?tesc pisicile lor pân? în ultimul moment înainte de a pune pisica în fa?a jarbitrului, în primul rând pentru a ob?ine titlurile pe care crescatorii si proprietarii si le doresc, dar si in speranta de a fi “Best in Show”

Expozitiile feline sunt locurilee unde prietenii se aduna pentru a petrece timp impreuna, in timp ce pisicile lor concureaza. Mul?i dintre expozanti calatoresc mii de kilometri cu pisicile lor pre?ioase pentru a petrece un week-end într-un hotel frumos, pentru a se bucura de seri cu alti expozanti, a face noi prieteni, iar concuren?a în timpul zilei este parte a pl?cerii. Intre mine si prietenii mei este o traditie, castigatorul cumpara bauturile seara.

Ziua incepe cu controlul veterinar. Fiecare pisica trebuie s? treac? printr-un control veterinar pentru a se asigura c? aceasta este pe deplin vaccinata împotriva rabiei, panleucopeniei ?i rinotraheitei, ca vizibil pisica este clinic sanatoasa si nu pot fi vazuti paraziti externi. Microcipul este, de asemenea, verificat pentru a se asigura c? pisica este de fapt cea înregistrat? in expozitie. Expozantul apoi primeste numarul de cusca si este primit in sala de expozitie.

Unii organizatori asigura cu?ti de metal care pot decorate la alegerea expozantului, cu perdele, unii organizatori permit expozantilor s?-si aduc? propriile lor cu?ti de pânz?. Indiferent ce cu?ti sunt folosite, expozan?ii trebuie s? ofere pisicii suficient confort, o ladita cu nisip ?i ap? in timpul zilei.

Odat? ce pisica este stabilita confortabil în cu?ca ei, expozan?i vor merge apoi pentru a afla de catre care arbitru va fi arbitrata pisica lor. Ceea ce enumim “impartirea pe culori” spune expozantului unde sa se duca pentru arbitraj. Impartirea pe culori este defalcata pe categorii (par lung, semilung, scurt, siameze si orientale), rase, culori si repartizarea pe arbitri, in functie de categoriile pe care arbitrii sunt autorizati, pastrand o medie de circa 40 de pisici per arbitru in fiecare zi de expozitie.

Arbitrii sunt autorizati pentru fiecare categorie in parte, unii devenind arbitrii abilitati pentru toate rasele, altii fiind multumiti sa arbitreze doar 1-2 categorii. Categoriile sunt defalcate dup? cum urmeaz?: - pisici cu blana lunga, pisici cu blana semi lung?, pisici cu blana scurt?, iar ultima este pentru pisicile siameze ?i orientale, plus o divizie separata pentru pisici de casa, care concureaz? separat. Apendicele I prezint? rasele din categoriile respective.

Pisicile sunt "codificate" cu coduri EMS (Easy System Mind). Primele 3 litere ale codului EMS descriu rasa simbolurile ce urmeaza descriu culoarea blanii si modelul. În func?ie de rasa, exist?, de asemenea, coduri suplimentare EMS pentru culoarea ochilor, lungime coada acolo unde este cazul, tipul de ureche dup? caz, etc. Un exemplu: - BRI ns 24 62. BRI = pisica britanica cu parul scurt, , ns = argintiu negru, 24 = punctat ?i 62 de = ochi portocalii. Este destul de u?or odat? ce începi s?-ti amintesti codurile.

Catalogul, care este disponibil pentru vizitatori si expozanti (dar nu pentru arbitri pana la terminarea expozitiei), arata num?rul pisicii, numele pisicii, sexul, data na?terii, codul EMS, numele cresc?torului, numele proprietarului ?i, uneori, de asemenea, la care arbitru a forst arondata.

Arbitrii ajung în sala de expozitie dup? controlul veterinar. Fiecare arbitru are spatiul lui propiu, denumit ring, in care au o masa, un scaun si cateva custi pentru pisicile ce asteapta sa fie arbitrate. De asemenea, fiecare trebuie s? aib? un asistent, cunoscut ca “steward” care este responsabil s? se asigure c? pisicile vin la arbitru sa ajute pe expozanti, pe arbitru si sa transmita fisele de arbitraj.

Jurizarea începe! Pisica soseste la arbitru, care o examineaza atent in conformitate cu standardul fiecarei rase. Fiecare standard de rasa are un num?r de puncte pentru tip, culoarea ochilor, forma corpului, culoarea blanii, lungimea si textura, etc. care impreuna fac 100 de puncte. Aceste standarde pot fi g?site pe site-ul WCF, ?i au fost scrise în mod special pentru fiecare ras?. Arbitrul evalueaza pisica public, ?i scrie un raport cu privire la pisica. Fiecare pisica primeste un num?r de puncte ?i un calificativ, unele pisici primesc si un certificat de titlu in functie de clasa , rasa, culoare ?i sex . Calificativele si tilurile sunt dup? cum urmeaz?: - (pisicile sterilizate si cele ne-sterilizate concureaza separat.

Bun: 61 de puncte (nu suficient de mare pentru a concura în continuare)

Foarte bun: 76 de puncte (nu suficient de mare pentru a concura în continuare)

Excelent 88 de puncte. Punctul de plecare pentru un pisoi de 3-6 luni sau juniori 6-10 luni, care concureaza, impartiti pe sex ( masculin ?i feminin) , ras? ?i culoare, pentru a ob?ine EX1, EX2, etc. dupa care, cei care au obtinut Ex1 concureaza pentru nominalizarea la best in show.

Toate pisicile care obtin peste 95 de puncte pot concura pentru “best in variety” adica cea mai buna pisica din rasa si culoarea respectiva, si nominalizarea pentru Best in Show. C . Pentru toate clasele juniorii ?i pisoii sunt separate pe sexe, iar dup? 10 luni adultii sterilizati si ne-sterilizati concureaza separat în clasele lor.

Clasa baby 10 s?pt?mâni pân? la 3 luni (separate pe sexe).

Clasa pui 3-6 luni (separate pe sexe)

CAPC clasa 16. dupa 3 certificate atribuite pisoiul devine kitten Champion

Clasa junior 6-10 luni (separate pe sexe).  CACJ clasa 15. dupa 3 certificate atribuite pisoiul devine junior champion.

Clasa Deschisa / pisici ne-sterilizate/ sterilizate incepand cu 10 luni.  CAC / CAP certificat de titlu clasa 13/14, 93 puncte sunt necesare pentru a ob?ine un certificat în aceast? clas?. Pentru titlu sunt necesare 3 certificate de la 3 arbitri diferiti.( CH / PR înainte de numele de pisica.)

Grand International Champion / Grand International Premior, pisici ne-sterilizate/ sterilizate.  CACE / CAPE clas? 7/8 97 puncte. 3 certificate trebuie s? fie luate în 3 ??ri diferite, de 3 arbitri diferiti ?i apoi pot concura la clasa 5/6. (Eu CH / Eu.PR înainte de numele de pisica).

Campion European / European Premior.  Clasa 5/6 97 puncte GCACE / GCAPE. 3 certificate trebuie s? fie luate în 3 ??ri diferite, de 3 arbitri diferiti ?i apoi pot concura la clasa 3/4. (GREu.CH/GREu.PR înainte de numele de pisica).

GR. European Champion / Gr. European Premior.  CACM / CAPM clasa 3/4 98 puncte. Acesta este cel mai înalt titlu s? fie atins. 3 certificate trebuie s? fie luate în alte 3 ??ri cu 3 arbitri diferiti, una dintre tari trebuie sa fie pe un alt continent ?i pot concura în clasa 1/2 (World Champion înainte de numele de pisica)

World Champion.  Pisicile concureaza pentru calificativul PH si pot castiga Best in Show sau Best in Variety.

La pisicile de casa cea mai mare apreciere este "I" ?i nominalizarea pentru best in show. Un mascul si o femela sterilizate cu parul lung, precum si un mascul si o femela cu parul scurt pot fi nominalizati. Nu exista clasa pisoi la pisicile de casa.

Exist? mai multe mai multe clase, cum ar fi de clas? cuib, clasa veteran, etc., dar nu sunt utilizate la fel de mult ca cele de mai sus.

“Best in Variety” poate fi acordat numai în cazul în care exist? trei pisici prezente din aceea?i ras? ?i culoare, indiferent de clas? sau de vârst?, dar, din nou pisicile sterilizate si ne-sterilizate concureaza separat.

Ringurile WCF sunt interesante ?i este o onoare dac? pisica ta castiga !! ringurile sunt defalcate în adul?i, pisici sterilizate ?i juniori / pisoi. Pentru a ?ine un ring WCF trebuie s? existe un minim de 10 adulti, sau minim 4 pisici sterilizate, sau cel pu?in 10 Juniori / Pui. Dac? nu sunt suficienti participanti pentru a ?ine un ring, adul?ii ?i pisicile sterilizatepot fi puse împreun?, sau Juniorii / Puii cu adul?ii. Arbitrul apoi claseaza 10 pisici, de la 1 la 10, num?rul 1 fiind câ?tig?torul. Castigatorul si pisica de pe locul 2 au o calificare pe viata pentru Mater ring. 

Pentru a ?ine un Master ring, un organizator de expozitie are nevoie de un minim de 4 pisici, ce pot fi 2 pisici de la o expozitie precedenta si 2 de la expozitia curenta.

Exist? o list? de reguli de descalificare, lucru trist pentru propietarul pisicii, dar necesar pentru protec?ia pisicii sau a oamenilor, nimic mai mult. De exemplu, o femela gravid? va fi descalificata, pentru protectia ei si a puilor. O pisic? agresiva ar putea afecta arbitrul, stewardul sau proprietarul. Nu este bine nici pentru pisica,

Fiecare arbitru va avea aproximativ 35-40 pisici s? arbitreze în timpul zilei. Apoi, el / ea va alege din fiecare categorie pe care a arbitrat-o pisicile care au realizat cele mai înalte niveluri de certificate pentru a merge mai departe pentru best in Show. Arbitrul poate alege doar un singur mascul, femela ne-sterilizata, un mascul si o femela sterilizatre, un mascul si o femela de la juniori si un mascul si o femela de la pui, din fiecare categorie arbitrata de el/ea pentru Best in Show. Cand s-au determinat nominalizarile, urmeaza in mod normal o pauza de pranz, în timp ce stewarzii preg?tesc actele si sala pentru Best in Show.

Best in Show este finala, marea bucurie a expozantilor si a publicului, cand sunt prezentate cele mai frumoase pisici din expozitie. Ele sunt prezentate completului de arbitri care voteaza. Votarea se face deschis ?i votul majoritar câ?tig?. In cadrul fiecarei categorii concureaza mascul contra mascul, femela contra femela, etc. Pisicile castigatoare Best in Show castiga un trofeu, un premiu, sau premii in mancare. Intre castigatorii de Best in Show, arbitrii decid apoi Best of Best adult, pisica sterilizata si kitten/junior, si in final Best of Best absolut al expozitiei.

Sper c? veti veni la expozitie pentru a admira pisici frumoase, poate chiar sa veniti cu pisici pentru a concura si a va bucura de un weekend distractiv intre noi prieteni.

 


A WCF CAT SHOW

how it works and what happens.

www.wcf-online.de

A cat show, no matter which organization it is from, is first and foremost a beauty competition. Cats are groomed carefully, washing, brushing, trimming, to make the cat as beautiful as possible. Many people are still preparing their cats until the last moment before putting the cat in front of the judge, first to get the titles all breeders and owners want, and secondly, the hopes of winning the Best In Show!

Cat shows are where friends who all enjoy the pleasure of competition get to together and enjoy the time together whilst showing their cats. Many of us travel thousands of kilometers with our precious cats to spend a weekend in a nice hotel, enjoy evenings with other exhibitors, make new friends, and the competition during the day is part of the pleasure. Part of my circle of friends' tradition is the owner of the winner buys the drinks that evening!

The day starts with the vetting in. This means that each cat must go through a vet check to ensure that it is fully vaccinated against Rabies, Panleucopenia and Rhinotracheitis, visibly the cat is in excellent health and no external parasites can be seen. The microchip is also checked to ensure that the cat is actually the one registered and paid for in the show. The exhibitor then checks in, gets his cage number and is allowed into the show hall.

Some organizers provide metal cages to be decorated with the exhibitor's choice of curtains, some organizers allow people to bring their own cloth cages. No matter what cages are used, the exhibitors must provide comfort, a litter box and water for the cats during the day.

Once the cat is comfortably settled in his cage the exhibitors will then go to find out which judge their cat will be judged by. What is known as the 'colour division' tells the exhibitor where their cat will be. The colour division is broken down into first the categories, breeds, and then the colours of the cats and divided between the judges, and what they are qualified to judge, keeping the number to approximately 40 cats each day for each judge.

Judges are qualified for one category at a time, some judges strive to become All Breed judges, others are happy to stay with one or two categories. The categories are broken down as follows:- Longhair, Semi-longhair cats, Shorthair cats, and the last is Siamese and Oriental cats, and there is a separate division for house cats, who compete separately. Appendix I shows the actually breeds in their respective categories.

Cats are 'coded' with EMS (Easy Mind System) codes. The first 3 letters of the EMS code says what breed it is, then the numbers after gives the coat colour. Depending on the breed there are also extra EMS codes for eye colour, pattern, tail length where appropriate, ear types where appropriate, etc. An example:- BRI ns 24 62. BRI=British Shorthair, ns=black silver, 24=spotted and 62=orange eyes. It is quite easy once you start to remember the codes.

The catalog that is available to visitors and exhibitors (but not the judges until the show is finished), states the number of the cat, cat's name, sex, date of birth, EMS code, breeder, owner, and sometimes also which judge has which cat for the weekend.

The judges arrive in the show hall after the vetting in is complete. They are each give their own show ring, where they have a table, chair and some cages available to them for the cats waiting to be seen. They also each must have one assistant, known as a steward, who is responsible to make sure the cats come to the judge and to take care of the paperwork, and generally help both the judge and the exhibitors.

The judging starts! The cat comes, the judge examines the cat and judges it according to a standard for each breed. Each breed standard has a number of points, adding up to 100 points for the type, the eye colour, the body shape, coat colour, length and texture, etc. These standards can be found on the WCF site, and they are written specifically for each breed. The judge not only talks about the cat openly to the public, but also writes a report on the cat. Each cat is then awarded a number of points and only one cat may be awarded a certificate for each class (certificate) within the cats' breed, colour and sex and these are as follows:- (Neuters and non-neuters do not compete against each other.)


Good 61 Points (not high enough to compete further for the show day)

Very Good 76 Points (not high enough to compete further for the show day)

Excellent 88 Points. The starting point for a kitten 3-6 months or junior 6-10 months. Male and female kittens and juniors compete separately divided by breed and colour, to obtain EX1, EX2, etc. but kittens compete together for nomination for the Best In Show, as do juniors, irrespective of sex.

All cats acquiring over 95 points may compete for Best in Variety (Best of Colour and Breed) and Best in Show. For all classes the cats and kittens are separated by sex, and after 10 months alters/neuters compete separately in their respective classes.

Baby Class 10 weeks to 3 months (separated by sex).

Kitten Class 6-10 months (separated by sex).  CACP class 16. 3 certificates awarded the kitten becomes a Champion Kitten

Kitten or Junior Class 6-10 months (separated by sex)

CACJ class 15. 3 certificates awarded the kitten becomes a Champion Junior.

Open Class/Neuter Class, starting with 10 months.

CAC/CAP class 13/14 93 Points is needed to obtain a certificate in this class. 3 certificates are required by 3 judges.

Champion/Premior.  CACIB/CAPIB class 11/12 95 Points. 3 certificates must be taken in 2 different countries by 3 different judges and then may compete in Class 9/10. (CH/PR before the name of the cat.)

International Champion/International Premior.  CAGCIB/CAGPIB 97 Points. 3 certificates must be taken in 2 different countries byclass 9/10 3 different judges and then may compete in Class 7/8. (Int.CH/Int.PR before the name of the cat)

Grand International Champion/Grand International Premior.  CACE/CAPE class 7/8 97 Points. 3 certificates must be taken in 3 different countries by 3 different judges and then may compete in Class 5/6. (Int,CH/Int.PR before the name of the cat).

European Champion/European Premior.  GCACE/GCAPE class 5/6 97 Points. 3 certificates must be taken in 3 different countries by 3 different judges and then may compete in Class 3/4. (Eu.CH/Eu.PR before the name of the cat).

GR. European Champion/Gr. European Premior.  CACM/CAPM class 3/4 98 Points. This is the highest title to be achieved. 3 certificates must be taken in 3 other countries with 3 different judges and may compete in class 1/2 (Gr.Eu.CH/Gr.Eu.PR before the name of the cat)

World Champion.  PH class 1 / 2 Cats competing in these classes receive prize of honour.

House Cats Highest award is 'I' and nomination for the Best In Show. One neuter male longhair, one neuter male shorthair, and one neuter female longhair, one female shorthair may be nominated. There is no kitten class in house cats.

There are several more classes, like litter class, veteran class, etc. but not used as much as these are.

Best In Variety can only be awarded if there are three cats present of the same breed and colour irrespective of class or age, but again neuters and non-neuters compete separately for Best In Variety.

The WCF rings are exciting and it is an honour if your cat wins!! The rings are broken down into adults, neuters and juniors/kittens. To hold a WCF ring there must be a minimum of 10 adults, or minimum 4 neuters, or minimum of 10 Juniors/Kittens. If there are not enough to hold a ring, the adults and neuters may be put together, or the Juniors/Kittens with the Adults. The judge then ranks the 10 cats, from 1 to 10, number 1 being the winner. Being the winner means that the cat has a life long qualification to participate in any Master ring.

To hold a Master ring a show organizer needs a minimum of 2 cats from previous shows that have won WCF rings to participate, and 2 winners of the current show.

There is a list of disqualifying rules, and if the cat is unfortunate enough to be disqualified it is a sad day, but most of these rules are for the protection of the cat or the people, nothing more. For example, a pregnant female will be disqualified, but that is to protect the female. An aggressive cat may hurt the judge, steward or owner. It is not fair to the cat, so it is better he just goes home.

Each judge will have approximately 35 to 40 cats to judge during the day. Then he/she will choose from each category he/she has judged that day the cats that achieved the highest levels of certificates to go forward for the Best In Show. The judge may choose only one male, female, neuter male, neuter female, a junior male and female (6-10 months) and a kitten male and female (3-6 months) Best Baby male, Best Baby female per category for the Best In Show Panel. When this is done and judging is over there normally is a lunch break while the secretaries prepare the paperwork for the Best In Show.

Best In Show is what most exhibitors and visitors enjoy the most, as it is a time to see the best cats of the show being presented. The cats are presented to the judges and then the judge votes on which cat he/she thinks is the most beautiful cat in the panel. The voting is done openly and the majority vote wins. Each category is done, males competing against males, females against females, neuter males against neuter males, etc. The cat that wins is considered Best In Show and takes home an award, either a trophy, or some cat food, cat bed, or both if the show organizer can arrange this. This is the official WCF title, but quite often the show organizer can arrange some other fun things, like Best In Category, or Best of Best, which is not a WCF title, but fun for the exhibitors, and quite often comes with more prizes!

I hope you will come to a cat show to see beautiful cats, maybe even compete yourself, and enjoy the spirit of a fun weekend amongst friends.
