The Governing Council of the Cat Fancy

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.

It is with great sadness that we report the death of our President, Grace Denny, who passed away on Monday 8th August age 100. Our thoughts are with her family and friends. Please click here for a personal message from past Chairman Helen Marriott-Power and details of the service.

The GCCF Online Services were re-launched on Monday 01 August 2016 as part of the new Phoenix IT System. Phoenix completely replaces every function we provide and is therefore a very major undertaking. Whilst the system is working, we are experiencing some "teething" problems as you might expect. These are being worked on by our IT team.  We apologise for any inconvenience caused whilst we have these resolved. If you encounter a problem, please check the current issues by clicking here.

International Cat Care supports the GCCF’s initiatives to ensure pedigree cats are healthy, preventing health and welfare issues caused by body 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
