Kender is in the Top 1% of CFA Catteries

Kender Cattery has been dedicated to the Siberian cat a long time. We couldnt be more proud of our many Grand Champions and Grand Premiers in CFA.  

Taken from the CFA Newsletter -
Factoids About Catteries of Distinction
Submitted by Dick Kallmeyer

Some things to think about the impact of Catteries of Distinction
  • Catteries of Distinction represent only 0.7% of CFA catteries (1,783 catteries)
  • Catteries of Distinction accounted for 72.6% of all CFA grands (since 1978)
  • Catteries of Distinction accounted for 85.8% of all DMs

Congratualtions Are In Order

As many of you know - our 2 boys participate in the CFA Junior Showmanship Program called YFEP.  Both boys won Regional Awards this year - with our youngest earning a National Award as well!

YFEP Congratulates Our Regional Winners
By: Cathy Dunham, Program Co-Chair
Our young people completed a full show season in style by completing a variety of activities. The support shown by the fancy has been overwhelming and greatly appreciated by the kids as they have shown their feline companions, worked alongside show committees to produce shows, made presentations in the community, hosted fund raising events for orphaned animals after a storm, stewarded, clerked, or hosted food drives for a local shelter. All these activities show the cat fancy in a very positive light to general public.
We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate the regional winners for YFEP.
 This year these kids were recognized for their accomplishments at regional celebrations across the country. During those celebrations we asked the Regional Directors to also award the national placements as well since many of our youth are unable to attend the annual in New Orleans. The exception to the national awards being presented is the award for the Highest Overall Achievement in the YFEP program, which will be presented at the delegates meeting to a very deserving young person. When you see these youth, please let them know you support their activities and achievements.
The committee would like to extend a huge Thank You to Royal Canin for making the program possible and to all the supporters of the program for making it a place in which tomorrows exhibitors/breeders can explore the cat fancy at their own pace and find the areas in which they excel.
