Concerns for owners of Semi Longhair cats
AT OUR recent AGM, concern was expressed by a large majority of our Members at the cost of hiring a double pen at GCCF Shows.

Many of the SLH breeds are quite large and unsuited for enclosing in a single pen for the duration of a show. A double pen is a must for many of our cats, but we feel we are being unduly penalised by having to pay well over the cost of hiring a double pen at some shows. We understand that some Show Managers will charge large fees to deter the hiring of double pens where space is limited, but we feel this is not always the case.

We feel we had to make Show Managers aware of the concerns of owners of these larger breeds which we, as an Association, represent.
