An award given to cats that earn enough points during a show year to be ranked among the highest scoring cats in the entire association for that year. Some associations add a title to the registered name of each award winner. The number of high scoring cats receiving national/international awards depends on the association and the competitive class (e.g. kitten, premiership, championship, household pet, etc.). For example, CFA gives national awards to the top 25 cats in Championship each year.
