Due to the current situation please note that there are only 2 members of staff working from home dealing with emails. This means that due to the high number of emails we are receiving there will be a delay in answering. We appreciate your understanding and patience. Thank you.

PLEASE NOTE THAT WITH EFFECT FROM MONDAY 20TH JULY 2020 WE WILL NOT BE ACCEPTING CERTIFIED PEDIGREES FOR IMPORTS BY EMAIL. THIS WAS A TEMPORARY MEASURE DUE TO CORONAVIRUS. THESE NOW NEED TO BE SENT TO THE OFFICE. WE WILL HOWEVER ACCEPT THEM BY EMAIL IF THEY COME DIRECTLY FROM THE OVERSEAS REGISTRATION BODY. ALL OTHER IMPORT DOCUMENTS WILL STILL BE ACCEPTED BY EMAIL. THANK YOU.
Due to the number of complants being received with regard to kittens being sold without correct documentation, please see the link to this notice "Buying a GCCF registered kitten - what to expect"
IF YOU ARE CONSIDERING BUYING A KITTEN, PLEASE BE AWARE OF FAKE ADVERTISEMENTS ON SOCIAL MEDIA AND PET SALE WEBSITES - SEE LINK TO SKY NEWS
