Registration bodies for pedigree cats

 The following is a list of the main pedigree cat registries around the world.  To keep the list manageable we have included all the main registering organisations, but for FIFe, WCF, ACF and CCCA not all their member clubs - these bodies all have affiliated registration bodies. Please let us know if there are any missing registries.  Although this website is for reference only, if you are looking for a kitten there is excellent advice on the registries' websites.  This list also includes links to the breed standards used in different registries as these are very different in different countries.
