SACC supports the following resolution taken at the World Cat Congress Annual Meeting in 2015 “WCC neither promotes nor approves the presence of wild feline species in connection with a cat show.”
I cannot believe that COTY is almost upon us once again- there are only a few shows left, so I’m sure that many of you are starting to get anxious about whether you will qualify or not. Please do not allow anxiousness to become unpleasant – all exhibitors would love to qualify but there are limited “places” to fill, so even if your cat doesn’t make it- be excited and happy for the owners whose cats do qualify.
Rand Cat Club will be hosting this year’s COTY which is being generously sponsored by Royal Canin.
The World Cat Congress was held in Miami, Florida, USA in March and the SACC Treasurer, Jan van Rooyen, attended as SACC Delegate. The report from this congress will appear in the next newsletter.
SACC will once again be in charge of the Cat Hall at WODAC this year. Please contact the SACC Office if you are able to help in any way at WODAC- this is a busy weekend for Jan and his Show Team and all assistance will be welcomed with open arms. Unfortunately shows don’t get put together by themselves-
they take a lot of hard work, time and effort by a few dedicated people; perhaps everyone should remember this when “the undercurrent grumbling” begins at shows or on social network sites.
Good Luck for COTY.
