CHAMPION & GRAND CHAMPION
To Champion a cat you must show the cat at a registered cat show. (ie; ACFA, CFA, TICA...) and it must fit the written standard for that association. It cannot be disqualified. It must earn winners ribbons (4 in ACFA) to become a Champion. 8 ribbons is double Champion, 12 triple champion and 16 makes it a quad champion. The cat has to earn 16 winners ribbons before it can become a Grand Champion. To Grand a cat they must also be finalled under 6 different judges. (Some cats achieve the finals before they get their winners ribbons.) In any case, it takes 16 winners ribbons and 6 finals under 6 different judges to Grand a cat in ACFA.
