Here's another important feature to look for. We will illustrate it on some of our older
cats also. But what we want you to focus on in this picture is the profile from the top of the brow to the chin.
The muzzle is worth 4 points in show.
The chin is worth 2 points.
The profile is worth 6 points.
The shape & size of the head is forth 8 points.
For a total of 20 points JUST FOR THE HEAD.
Here's the way the standard reads: "Muzzle: rounded with gentle transition, no pronounced
whisker break. Chin: firm, in line with nose and upper lip."
NOTE: "chin IN LINE WITH THE NOSE".
The judges are looking for a nice refined and smooth curvature from the brow to the chin.
They will put alot of emphasis on whether the top of the lip and the lower chin form a straight line in the profile.
The chin should not be recessed.
