Had enough cold weather? Had enough SNOW?!

Spring starts in March and we can’t wait for it to get here, so the people and cats of Garden State Cat Club say, “Fur-ward March!” right meow! It's our club's first virtual cat competition, celebrating the bright colors and energetic spirit of spring.

  • Entries open February 28 and close March 15. Finals and voting continue into late March. 
  • Our judging lineup incudes 8 for FIVE conformation classes and 8 exhibitor judges for our 8 fun classes.
  • Entries are $10 each or enter 3 and get your 4th entry FREE!

Our “extra” conformation class is designed especially for pedigreed cats who have not been able to be physically shown due to the pandemic. Kittens, champions and premiers will be judged together in this “A Star is Born” class by our 8 conformation judges. Don’t miss this chance to get feedback on your never-shown kitties!

Then we have the fun classes, tried and true favorites like “Tiny Tots” and “Best Buddies” plus several brand-new categories never before seen in a CFA virtual event! Each fun class will be judged by two different judges. See full list with judges below.



Of course, there are plenty of prizes!

The highest scoring cat in each conformation class will receive a beautiful rosette handmade in Turkey.

The top three cats in each fun ring will  receive prizes ranging from Amazon gift cards to cat toys to certificates for free litter and other feline necessities.

Please see the Prize tab for more details and visit our supporters under the Supporter tab, where you can check out their products and follow links to their websites to learn more about them.


 Bethany Colilla, Ken Currle, Nicholas Pun, Lorraine Shelton (TICA), Gary Veach, Vicki Nye, Sharon Roy, Jeri Zottoli

These judges will be judging Kittens, Championship, Premiership, Household Pets, and our never-shown "A Star is Born" class.

My Cat Looks Like. . . – Some cats look like their owners. Others may look like cartoon characters or celebrities. Let’s see a pic of your kitty with a pic of whoever (or WHATEVER) it looks like!

Judged by Robert Zinck and Carol Krzanowski

Shelter Stars – Did your cat come from a rescue? Or is it looking to be rescued today? We’re supporting rescues by featuring their adoptable cats and saluting owners who want to show off their shelter stars. Every entry gets a story.
