The highest achievement in the CFA show ring is accomplished when a cat successfully earns the title of National Winner (NW). CFA established the title of Grand Champion in 1930 and the title of National Winner first appeared in 1971. In CFA, each year the top 25 cats in Championship, 25 Kittens and 25 cats in Premiership are awarded the NW title.

The British Shorthair is probably the oldest breed of cat in England, but surprisingly, it was not accepted by CFA until 1980.

In 1988, the first British Shorthair to make a national win in CFA was celebrated when GC, GP, NW Jedi Blusun of Vegamar was 3rd Best Cat in Premiership. The following year, GC, NW Jedi Issy Blue was 4th Best Cat in Championship - the highest win earned by a Brit in Championship to date. Issy became the winningest Brit of all time when six years later he also earned the title of Best Cat in Premiership - the only Brit to reach the very top of any of the three Categories.

Below is a table with the national winning British Shorthairs including their name, color, sex, year of their win, and the award they earned.

If the cat's name is in blue text, you can click on it to see a photo of the cat. Championship cats names are on an orange background, kittens are on pink and alters are on a blue background.
