The UK's Premier Registration body

Giving Cats Care Forever!

The Governing Council of the Cat Fancy is the premier registration body for cats in the UK. We offer information, advice and expertise to help you breed, own or choose the right cat for your circumstances and life style.

ATTENTION ONLINE SERVICES USERS: The GCCF Online Services will be closed from late evening on Thursday 14 July 2016 until the morning of Monday 25 July 2016 to allow the new Phoenix IT System to be installed. Please see the details in the "Latest News" section on the right of this notice.

  Our thoughts are with all those affected by the terrible events in Nice on Bastille Day 2016  

International Cat Care supports the GCCF’s initiatives to ensure pedigree cats are healthy, preventing health and welfare issues caused bybody conformation or inherited disorders.  Its leadership on these issues will ensure that the GCCF leads the way in pedigree cat welfare.              Claire Bessant, Chief Exective
