The “Baked to Purr-fection” Cat Photo Contest is fresh out of the oven and waiting for your entries!

The Ragamuffin Cat Society is cookin’ up a storm of surprises for its spring cat photo contest. You’ll want to taste the fun in every ring! Eight CFA judges will choose their best kittens, cats in championship, cats in premiership, and household pets, then each judge goes on to judge two of our eight themed fun classes. Top 15 finals will be awarded in every ring, both conformation and fun classes. There’s a specialty ring just for Ragamuffins and Spectators’ Choice voting for every cat in show, with TOP TEN AWARDS for the highest vote getters!

We’re turning on the oven at 12:01 a.m. ET Sunday, April 18th so be sure to pop your entries right in and start collecting your Spectators’ Choice votes! The sooner you enter, the more time you have to earn votes and qualify for one of the top ten spots. Entries will close at 8 PM ET on Monday, May 3rd. Any entry questions, contact our entry clerk, Cathy Dunham, at Entryclerk@mediacombb.net


 Jacqui Bennett, Kathy Black, Kathy Calhoun, Pam Delabar, Dennis Ganoe, Karen Godwin, Doreann Nasin, Bob Zenda will judge both Conformation and Fun classes.

Spectators’ Choice Voting will begin as soon as entries open. Voting will close at 8 PM ET on May 11th. The top 10 vote getters will be recognized. One half of the voting proceeds will be donated to the CFA Breeders Assistance Program (BAP), the rescue arm of our parent organization.
