This exciting new site for youngsters will introduce them to the breeds of pedigreed cats, their personalities, colors and patterns; explain all about cat shows and judging; and describe the CFA Junior Showmanship Program. Included is lots of neat stuff for kids to have fun with, such as match games, crossword puzzles, word searches and jigsaw puzzles. The site also contains a list of resources for parents and teachers. June 2005  found here;

If you qualify for Rapid Renewal and have not paid your 2006 dues, you can now do so through the on-line catalog at:
