Practical Information

Results of the "Top Bengal Cat" list will be published on this web page: http://kimburu.tripod.com/bengalyear , and the top 3 cats in each category will get their picture on this web page. Top 10 cats will be mentioned on a web page separate from the rest of the list. All Bengal clubs interested may publish the results and photos if wanted. The competition is free of charge, both for the clubs and for the individual participants. Entry forms including documentation (copy of certificates) must have reached the administrator of this list by mail or email before 28th February the following year. Top 10 Winners will receive the information as soon as possible after the deadline. The score table originates from a mixture of the FELIS DANICA Top-10 rules and the NRR Cat of the Year rules.

If fewer than 10 cats participate in each category only top 5 will be mentioned on the top 10 list. If fewer than 5 cats participate in each category, there will be no published result on the top 10 list for this category. All entries will be published in a table on the web page.

If fewer than 5 cats participate within a certain colour the groups will be put together like this;

Seal marbled lynx point; BEN n 22 33 with Seal mink marbled; BEN n 22 32 and Seal sepia marbled; BEN n 22 31
