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.
