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 Russian Blues were one of the first few breeds accepted by CFA, and the first Russian Blues to appear in CFA stud books were in 1949.

In 1970-71, the first National Winning Russian Blue was a male named GC, NW Velva's Blue Viking, who was 7th Best Cat. He followed that up by earning 2nd Best Cat the next year.To date, however, no Russian Blue has yet earned a "Best" in any of the competition categories.

Below is a table with the national winning Russian Blues 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.
