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.

In the early part of the 20th century, the Angora was used indiscriminately in breedings with Persians, until it finally disappeared from the scene and became incorporated with that breed, known for a time simply as ‘Longhairs.' However, in 1962, the Angora was rediscovered by American servicemen in the Ankara Zoo in Ankara, Turkey, in a controlled breeding program dating back forty-five years. CFA only accepts for registration those Turkish Angoras whose ancestry can be traced back to Turkey The breed was accepted by CFA for championship status in 1973.

It wasn't until the 1985-86 show season that the Turkish Angora had their first National Winner. A blue-eyed white male named GC, NW Dore's Chandar was 18th Best Cat.

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