It is forbidden to exhibit following cats on a Felis Belgica show:
- wild cats
- breeds, which originate from a genetical dissease (dwarfism, fysical defects, ...) as there are e.g. the Munchkin and the Scottisch Fold
- outcrosses from wild cats or hybrid cats from the generations F1 to F4.
It is forbidden to remove cats from the show hall before the end of the show, unless there has been a special permit granted by the show manager. Early departure leads to disciplinary measurements, i.e. exclusion from Felis Belgica shows for the rest of the calendar year and withdrawal of the obtained certificates on the show.
