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 4 affiliated clubs who run their own shows throughout the year, for more information about the clubs check out the Cat Clubs page.
