They don't like cats with wild blood in their show halls or their registry. Their loss IMO.
I will be at the TICA Raleigh show in July. It's the South East regional, so a big show, held at the fairgrounds. Jack should be getting some regional awards so we're going and will be showing our new crew for the upcoming show season.
That is awful, something I just learned though. Our Ragdolls can only be shown in the bicolor pattern in CFA as well, just this past year were the mitted and colorpoint varieties, accepted for AOV status. Most of the CFA shows, we have thought about showing one of our AOV Ragdolls, still want the same amount to show as a Ragdoll, who does get points and titles, so we have stayed loyal to TICA. I also think their loss with your beautiful Bengals, and our mitted and colorpoint Ragdolls. The Ragdoll is much more than just the bicolor, in certain litters, such as a mitted to mitted breeding, it is possible to produce the mitted, colorpoint, and bicolor patterns in one litter. Go Figure. The only thing I dislike about TICA, is that almost anything goes, you can bring in a moggie, and if bred back to a purebred again, in enough generations, you can bring it from an A generation to C generation and then SBT. I realize that this is important for certain purposes, however, I think they have allowed the rules to be a little too flexible. This is only my opinion.
As far as ACFA, I really don't know their rules, most of their shows are very far away, so I haven't joined them. I believe they have accepted all colors included the pointed Ragamuffins for championship status. I think as for Ragdolls they accept the 3 patterns, but I am not sure if they accept the lynx and tortie, again, I am not sure how ACFA works, so my thoughts above could be completely false. This is what I have heard, and thought.
While these associations are the 3 major associations here, they do have very different thoughts in different areas.
