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.

Thanks to everyone who attended the GCCF Supreme Cat Show 2017 on Saturday 28 October, close on 4000 of you! You can see the lovely winner to the right here. We will be putting up photos from the event in due course including winners in the Fun Kitten, Cuddly Toy and Decorated Pen competitions held that day. We also have a few of the wonderful souvenir catalogues left which features 160 pages including full colour articles on breeding and other cat topics for the novice to the experienced breeder, and lots of pictures of wonderful CATS! Copies available post free from the office. See you at the 2018 Supreme Cat Show!

The Governing Council of the Cat Fancy are very proud to be hosts for the 2021 World Cat Congress celebrating the 150th Anniversary of the first recognised cat show.

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 Executive
