These are the standards for HHPs
HHPs may be shorthair unless they are longhair or semi-longhair.
HHPs may be solid color cats, unless they are bicolor, calico, tortoiseshell, tabby, or pointed or a combination of any of the above.
HHPs should have all their parts (except neutered males); unless they are missing a leg, an eye, an ear, or a tail.
HHPs get points for being nice or being naughty.
Now the real standards...........
1. Spayed or Neutered if over 8 months of age.
2. In proper condition for their size - not too fat or too thin.
3. Groomed well - clean ears, eyes, nails clipped, fur combed and free of any mats or tangles (if longhair). CFA bans any declawed cats. ACFA and TICA accept them but don't promote it.
4. Nice personality will help a lot; tho some judges like that occasional feisty cat. They do understand that most of the HHPs may never have been outside their own house or may never have been around 100 other cats and take that into allowance.
