ROYAL CANIN takes pleasure and pride in introducing to OUR CATS readers; two brand new innovations that will make your cat show wins very special - for the first time ever, ALL pedigree cats, their owners and breeders, have the opportunity to attain Top Class status in the world of cats.

OUR CATS, "Essential Reading for all Exhibitors" is proud to be linked with ROYAL CANIN'S philosophy of "Knowledge and Respect" - together we form a unique bond, to support the serious breeder and exhibitor.

The TOP BREEDERS' competition is open to ANY CATS BRED AND OWNED BY THE BREEDER, drawn from all Seven Breed Sections. Points are accrued at both Area and Breed Championship shows; each of these shows has a separate scale of points. Breeders that have cats belonging to more than one Breed Section are permitted to enter as many sections as they wish. There will be a 'TOP TEN' from each Breed Section - the highest scorer becoming SECTION WINNER, with nine runners up. The individual OVERALL WINNER will be awarded the prestigious title of TOP BREEDER 2005 !

The TOP EXHIBIT competition is open to ANY ADULT, KITTEN or NEUTERED CAT. Kittens that become adults during the current competition can continue to accrue points, as the ultimate goal is to become TOP EXHIBIT 2005, regardless of age or entirety. Like the breeder competition, each exhibit will be part of the seven separate Breed Sections, each with its own TOP TEN!

See page 10 of the Our Cats Newspaper or click here for the ENTRY forms to claim your first points for January and February 2005. Upon receipt of your first form, you will be officially registered with ROYAL CANIN and… EVERY ENTRANT will receive a GIFT of a voucher for the 2kg bag of ROYAL CANIN food of your choice! Dated monthly forms will be published in OUR CATS. If you require additional forms, the original may be photocopied.

Help Us To Help Them!

FOR many years, OUR CATS ran a Rescue Directory, which was published in OUR CATS on a regular basis. Towards the end of last year, we decided to omit the column as so many of the entries were no longer in operation.

Several readers informed us that they had not been successful in contacting some of those centres on the old list.

We would like to set up this facility again, and therefore ask readers who have contacts with either local rescue centres or with cat club networks, to GET THEM to inform us if they wish to be included on a regular listing.

The listing is FREE to bona fide charities, and is a goodwill service that OUR CATS provides in order to help all cats that fall upon ‘needy times’.

However, we must stress that the inclusion on the list is dependant on a Rescue Directory Listing form being completed by the centres’ owners or operators and returned to us. This form will be published regularly to enable new additions to be made or amendments to existing entries to be recorded. Centres or cat club networks will need to renew their details every 12 months.

Rescue centres may be breed specific or general. The centres need not be a registered charity but must be non-profitable organisations. Lost and Found facilities and Benevolent Funds etc., are also eligible for listing.

Once the list is published, our Chief Reporter, Nick Mays,
will feature the rescue centres or club networks in OUR CATS.
