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. 

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

Just a quick note to say thank you for the rapid work that you guys are doing.  Was quite shocked when all (cat's name) paperwork and registration turned up literally 2 days after I sent it.  Very impressed. Mr B. Northants

I would also like to compliment the GCCF on their efficiency.  I have been very impressed with the speed of response and the informative replies.  I am very knowledgeable within the canine world not so with the felines... so really appreciate the time given. Mrs N Shropshire

Omg, I love you. Thank you so so much, literally had a nervous breakdown yesterday. Really appreciate all that you do.  Very Happy Mrs F. Lancashire
