Welcome to the CFA Gulf Shore Region
Our region is part of the Cat Fanciers' Association.
CFA Gulf Shore Region 3 is part of the Cat Fanciers' Association, the world's largest registry of pedigreed cats, and is known as Region 3. It encompasses the following states: Arkansas, Colorado, Kansas (South of the 38th parallel), Louisiana, Mississippi, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Tennessee (West of the Tennessee River), Texas, Wyoming, and the Mexican states of Aguascalientes, Campeche, Chiapas, Chihuahua, Coahuila, Colima, Durango, Federal District, Guanajuato, Guerrero, Hidalgo, Jalisco, México, Michoacán, Morelos, Nayarit, Nuevo Leon, Oaxaca, Puebla, Querétaro, Quintana Roo, San Luis Potosí, Tabasco, Tamaulipas, Tlaxcala, Veracruz, Yucatán, and Zacatecas.
As you can see, Region 3 covers a very large area, and it is not unusual for exhibitors to drive 8 to 12 hours to attend cat shows in our region. At the present time there are 64 CFA Cat Clubs in the Gulf Shore Region. Chances are one of these clubs is having a show near you on any given weekend. If you are interested in attending a CFA Cat Show in Region 3, check our Show Schedule for show locations and dates. We also have a Region 3 E-Mail list to discuss issues affecting the Gulf Shore Region.
Meet Our Regional Director
I am honored to represent the Gulf Shore Region as your Regional Director. Our region is the largest in area, and as vast and diverse in both topography and people.
I have been associated with CFA and this region since 1990 when I first started showing my Maine Coon cat. I worked with Maine Coon, Somali, Chartreux, Oriental Shorthair, Russian Blue, Norwegian Forest Cat, Turkish Van, Japanese Bobtail, Persian and Birman breeds. I founded Texoma Cat Club which held shows for 9 years in Southwest Oklahoma, Northwest Texas area. I entered the Judging program in 2000 and just celebrated 15 years of judging our beautiful CFA cats.
Our region is full of talented, friendly exhibitors, many of whom work very hard for the support and betterment of our Region 3.
We have many programs in place to help the new exhibitor from the Mentorship program, Meet me Cats at our shows, and the NewBee program which provides a guidebook for the new exhibitor.
We welcome you to our shows, join our email group, and to visit our Regional Website and CFA.org. See you at a show soon.
Please come back often to see what's happening in Region 3. Feel free to email the Region 3 Webmaster any suggestions you might have that you think would make our site better!
