How the Fast Cat Points Calculator Works

The fast cat points calculator simplifies the process of determining your dog’s Fast CAT®  points. Here’s the breakdown:

  1. Run Time: Enter the time (in seconds) your dog took to complete the course.
  2. Cat Size: Select the radio button corresponding to your dog’s size category: Under 12 inches, 12 inches – Under 18 inches, or 18 inches and Over. Each category has a specific handicap that factors into the final score.
  3. Calculate: Click this button to process the information.

The calculator then performs the following calculations:

  • MPH (Miles Per Hour): It uses the formula MPH = 204.545 / Run Time.
  • Points: It multiplies the MPH by the handicap associated with your dog’s size category (2 for Under 12″, 1.5 for 12″ – Under 18″, and 1 for 18″ and Over).

The final result displayed shows your dog’s speed in MPH and their earned Fast Cat points.

How are the titles awarded?

Titles are awarded when your dog crosses a points treshold. Below is the number of points required for each title

BCAT = 150 points
DCAT = 500 Points
FCAT = 1,000 points ,Multiple = every 500 points
(FCAT2 = 1,500 points, FCAT3 = 2,000 points, etc)
