Serving the Cat Fancy since 1928 !

The setting up of the The Governing Council of the Cat Fancy Australia and Victoria Inc. in 1928, the third in the world, was a progressive, forward-thinking move and we intend to continue in the same way. We are a happy group, who help each other in many ways, from setting up and pulling down shows, to sharing knowledge and experience.We have affiliated clubs who run their own shows throughout the year, for more information about the clubs check out the Cat Clubs page.

Their judges and awards are not recognised, ACF judges may not officiate at Cats Australia shows.

GCCFV Members are advised that effective from 1st July 2022 the following changes will be made when litters/kittens are registered.  These changes are to adhere to the Victorian State Government requirements for an Applicable Organisation.
  1. ALL kittens must be individually registered and microchipped.
  2. New owner's details should be provided.When available this must be done at the time of the litter registration.
  3. Any kitten registered as an entire must only be kept by the breeder or transferred to a breeder registered with an affiliate of ACF, CCCA or ANCATS or to an acceptable international body. The membership number of the new owner and their source number (if applicable) must be provided at the time of registration.  All other kittens, not sold entire, will be registered as Desexed and a Pet Only pedigree will be issued, unless they are being shown then a full Desexed pedigree will be issued.
  4. Breeders must provide their Source Number on all Litter Registration Forms.
  5. The Source Number will be included on all Litter Registration paperwork from 1st July 2022.
