THE SHOW SYSTEM EXPLAINED
The Independent clubs in South Africa use the same system and titles as the WCF, Fife and European Independent clubs. This is an international system, requiring travel to different countries/regions/ provinces to attain titles higher than Champion/Premiers. Many exhibitors find it difficult and expensive to travel to different regions within South Africa. For this reason the WCF affiliate, CASA introduced a unique system of “South African National Titles”, not unlike the national titles awarded in countries like Israel and the LOOF in France. This means exhibitors have the choice of either pursuing International titles for their cats, or National titles, giving cats of high quality the recognition they deserve in the form of formal titles, even if only competing within their own region. National titles are only recognized within South Africa, but will be indicated on the pedigrees of any exported offspring. A cat wanting to follow an International career up to the title of World Champion will have to remain on the International option of titles and follow through with these rules. All the Independent clubs in South Africa recognize these titles reciprocally.
The International and National titles are won according to the following guidelines and rules:
Kitten Champion/Premier – 3 CACP/CAPP at national or international shows from 3 different judges. 90 points required for this award. (Kittens 3 -6 months)
Junior Champion/Premier – 3 CACJ/CAPJ at national or international shows from 3 different judges. 90 points required for this award. (Juniors 6 – 10 months)

Frequently asked Questions (FAQ)
It is the original format of cat clubs, especially successful in Europe, where the club is autonomous in all respects.It does not belong to a governing body and does not pay affiliation fees or subscribe to the rules and constitution of a governing body on a national or international basis.Some of the largest clubs in Europe are independent.
Independent clubs do not want to have a slice or compete with the other clubs.It rather wants to add a dollop of cream if it is a sweet pie or some gravy if it is a savoury pie.The idea is to enhance and complement, not compete.
An independent club has a lot of options and freedom to explore, without the restrictive rules of an international body, which sometimes are not relevant or realistic in our country and costs nothing in affiliation -, show license -, meeting attendance -, etc. fees.
No. There are three cat registering bodies in South Africa, covering all breeds of cats. There is no need for an Independent Register.Independent clubs can accept cats registered anywhere.
Independent Judges in Europe take 100% responsibility for their own training, unless they belong to an Independent Guild.They have to arrange their training and examinations with other independent judges.It is a long and tedious process, usually done breed by breed and in a very loosely defined fashion.In South Africa we have the CJGA, an independent Guild of Cat Judges which is undertaking training and affiliation of Independent Judges in a structured way.
There is no association, apart from the fact that the same title structure is followed and as such titles and title certificates from Fife, WCF and other independent clubs following the same title structure can be recognised reciprocally.CFSA, SACC, ACFA, TICA, CFA, UFO, ACF, CCCA, NZCF, etc. titles and certificates follow different systems and can therefore not be recognised for a cat’s show career.Fife & WCF judges’ licenses are recognised, as are all other verifiable judges’ qualifications.
The standards are pretty universal these days.Cats are judged in colour, pattern, etc. classes as per WCF/Independent convention.The standard of the organisation of origin (where the cat was first recognised) is the preferred one.
Firstly, WCF international shows need 80 cats entered on a show – something which is very difficult to guarantee in smaller centres and other neighbouring countries.
