Scoring Household Pets For Regional Awards

 

In CFA, Household Pets are scored regionally. The Southwestern region includes Southern California, Nevada and Arizona. The Southwest region uses the same basic scoring table used for national and regional scoring in the other classes. Under this formula the top cat in any ring receives a point for every cat officially entered who that cat "defeats" in the ring. For example, if there are 100 cats in the class, the top cat would receive 99 ring points. If there are 20 cats in the Household Pet class, the top cat in each ring receives 19 ring points.

The second place cat gets 95% of what the first place cat receives. The third place cat gets 90% of what the first place cat receives. The fourth place cat gets 85% of what the first place cat receives. The fifth place cat gets 80%; and the score continues to drop by 5% for each place until the tenth place cat gets 55% of what the first place cat receives. The eleventh place cat and below get zero. If only top five are scored (i.e. receive rosettes) in a show, only the top five receive points. Unlike other associations, there is no set rule for the number of HHP entries necessary to score top ten instead of top five; it is up to the club hosting the show.

Most people use a chart to figure the percentages, usually called the regional or national point calculator. To use the chart, go down the left side until you reach the number of cats in your class in the show. Then proceed to the right until you reach the column for your place finish. For example, if your cat placed sixth of 20 cats, go down the left margin to 20. Then proceed across to the column under sixth place. This will yield the number 14.25, which is the point score for your cat for that ring. You then total all of the rings to get your cat's total points for that show. Add all of your shows together to get your total points for the season. In CFA the show season runs from the beginning of May to the end of April.

Note that the number of cats you would use would be the number officially in the show. If a cat is in the catalog, but does not appear for any judging, it does not count for scoring purposes. However, if a cat is in the catalog, and appears for judging IN ANY RING the cat is in the show and counts for all rings. For example, in the typical two day show, if there are 18 cats on Saturday, but only 15 are there on Sunday, the Sunday scoring will still be based on 18 cats in show.

Once a cat has been judged in 100 rings the scoring gets a bit more complicated. Only the best 100 rings are scored, for any given show. So long as the cat has less than 100 rings, simply add up all of the points. Once it has over 100 rings you begin to "throw away" rings with fewer points.
