Imperial Titles
The top title of Imperial Grand was introduced by the GCCF from 1 June 2005. Grand titled cats compete with each other for the distinction of winning Imperial grand certificates. A cat winning five Imperial certificates from five different judges is awarded the Imperial Grand title which is no mean feat! We are therefore delighted to congratulate members of RACCS whose cats have achieved the high honour of Imperial Grand title.

In 2011 the GCCF introduced an even higher level of award, the Olympian, where Imperial-titled cats from all sections compete against each other for this prestigious award. Five Olympian certificates qualifies a cat as an Olympian Bronze; another five, Silver; and yet another five, ie 15 in total, gives the title Olympian Gold. So far just three RACCS cats have scaled the heady heights of an Olympian title, and these wins are also noted below.
