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. 

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
