Ladies and Gentlemen, boys and girls, and children of all ages. It's time for the Main Event!

The CFA International Top Cat Challenge finale sponsored by ZYMOX will begin accepting entries on November 24th. This event will feature a photo conformation event for entries that previously entered a Regional Qualifying Virtual Event, a video conformation event, and many fun rings. The proceeds from this event will benefit the WINN Feline Foundation.

We have 46 judges from all over the world on our panel from CFA, CCA, FiFe, GCCF, TICA, and NZCF, as well as several Millennial exhibitor judges in our fun rings. We are looking for event sponsors starting at just $25 to help us award more prizes to our awesome winners. Additionally, we are offering free advertising on the VCC portal and our Facebook event to vendors that donate and ship prizes to the top 15 winners for a judge’s final.
