Admin Prefixes

Non-Prefix Registrations

All litters registered with the GCCF will be registered with a ‘prefix’ as the first word in the registered pedigree name. A prefix can be applied for by a breeder for a fee of £75 and details regarding this can be found here.

All breeders who do not have their own GCCF prefix, or whose prefix cannot be used for a particular registration, will have their litters registered under a GCCF allocated admin prefix. This admin prefix is updated every January, and a different variation on the word is used for each Section of the Register; see list below.

For Non-prefix applications, the name including the admin prefix may contain no more than 30 characters including spaces.

The Registrars will add the appropriate admin prefix in front of your choice of cat’s/kitten’s names.

For example, ADOCTSL RED FRED would be a 2020 registered Longhaired cat.
