UTH Change

As of the Curly Coats show (April 2015) CQi will now be implementing the following change to the UTH rule.”Any cat that shows aggression towards people, particulary any cat that bites or deliberately scratches someone, is to be automically declared UNABLE TO BE HANDLED (UTH). There is to be no further judging of the cat on the day and a sign should be displayed and the owner notified. Any cat that is ruled UTH must not be removed from its cage until it is transferred to its carry cage to go home. Any cat that is declared UTH is suspended from the show bench for 3 months. If the cat is declared (UTH) again, it will be permantely disqualified (from CQI shows) for life. However, any aggressive drawing of blood is automatically given a life ban even if it’s the cats first offence.”
