Significant Events in the History of the Australian Cat Federation (ACF) Inc.

Special Moments

The AGM and show were held in Adelaide, South Australia. Again, there were no changes to the list of officer–bearers. It was decided that a review and update of the ACF Judges Training Scheme would be undertaken. A working party will investigate anomalies in the use of terminology throughout the standards. Standards for breeds with no points for colour or pattern were changed to include five points for these attributes. The smoke point and silver tabby point standards were updated (for all breeds) and extensive fine–tuning of Dilute modifier colours (caramel and apricot) was applied across the board. Cinnamon and Fawn were recognised in British Shorthairs and the standards of Abyssinian– and Burmese–derived breeds now also reflect that a bump in the nose is undesirable.
