Breaking News! Next Show Date!
We are delighted to announce that the new Show date will be Sunday 6th April 2014 when we will be sharing the venue (Aldersley Leisure Complex, Aldersley Road, Wolverhampton, West Midlands, WV6 9NW) with Midland Counties Cat Club and the breed clubs who normally share with us.
This will give Snowshoes and all the SH breeds (inc Exotics, British, Burmese, Orientals, Siamese SH Somalis and Nebelungs if still in Assessment, HPs and Ped Pets) an opportunity to enter for TWO certificates and we will actually have a choice of which 2 judges we enter under.
Before anyone asks...No!...competing for 3 certificates on the day will not be allowed.
Snowshoe Intermediate Certificates
These are offered to the first prize winners in the Adult and Neuter Open classes for Provisional status breeds.
At the Supreme Show, if a Provisional status breed wins a Best of Variety or a Supreme Certificate, this counts as an Intermediate Certificate.
Three Intermediate Certificates from three different judges do not give the cat any title, but make it a "qualifier" eligible to help its breed to progress to the coveted full championship status. These certificates may be won as entire or neutered adults, so a cat may have won one before being neutered and the other two after his or her operation.
Please send your qualifying results to our breed recorder. Once qualified your cat will be listed on our website.

History in the making........
OCTOBER 15th 2011 marked a UK first for the Snowshoe breed.
Coldenufforsnow Haiku attended the CRAOV (Coloupointed Rex coated and AOV) Cat Club show where she achieved 1st in her breed class, was awarded a Merit, Best of Breed and acquitted herself well in her side classes.
She then topped the day of nicely by being selected Best in Show Foreign Kitten by Mrs L Stevenson.
The Snowshoes have previously been awarded Best of Assessment breeds, but this was a UK first for them to receive a Best in show Foreign award against all the Championship breeds.
There were 4 other quality contenders, so not a 'walk over' class.
Warmest Congratulations to 'Koo and her delighted owner/breeder Mollie Southall of the Coldenufforsnow Cattery.
