CFA Show Rules
CFA Show Rules cover all aspects of managing a cat show, exhibiting and judging. The requirements for entering and exhibiting at a show, detailed information on how to run a show and the specifics of judging are all included in this booklet as well as information on scoring and Regional/National Awards. It is strongly suggested that anyone showing their cat be familiar with the Show Rules.
The Show Rules may be purchased for a $5.00 fee. You can order the Show Rules online using a credit card, or by mail from:

Prepare a cat that suffers car sickness for 4 hour drive (from answers.yahoo.com)
I am moving with my cat along, 4 hour drive and then 8 hour flight into Europe (unable to leave her at a shelter, I would never consider that). My cat gets very easily car sick, starts drooling abundantly and meows as if she is about to die. She handles surprisingly the flight very well, as she has done this before.
Best Answer - Chosen by Asker
The first thing I'd recommend is to take up her food at least 8 hours before leaving so it's less likely she'll suffer from stomach upset. Your vet can also give or tell you about medications that can calm their stomach (like Dramamine that works for humans that get carsick) or sedate them just enough to help your kitty on her ride.
Good luck to you both!
Is your cat show material?
Before deciding whether or not to show your household pet, there are three major points to consider: (1) the health and condition of your cat, (2) its temperament or personality and (3) its appearance. These are the things the judges will be looking for when he or she decides what cats will receive awards.
