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 Maine Coon was actually one of America's first breeds, being listed in show catalogs as early as 1878. However, it wasn't until 1976 that the breed was recognized and accepted for competition with CFA.

It was 1982 before the Maine Coon breed had its first National Winner - a female named GC, NW Tufpaws Rosette - which was quite an accomplishment in a breed where the standard definitely favors the male! In fact, it would be 18 more years - the 2000 show season - before another female became a National Winner!

In the 2004-05 show season, GC, BW, NW Tuvets Martha's Pick of Abizaq became the highest placing Maine Coon in Championship when he was 2nd Best Cat.

Then breed history was made in 2010 when the brown tabby neuter GP, NW Highlander Tony Bennett of Wenlock topped the leader board as Best Cat In Premiership - the first and only time to date that a Maine Coon has been Best.

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