Established in 1962 and affiliated with the Australian Cat Federation, the Governing Council of the Cat Fancy of South Australia (GCCFSA) is the original controlling body and pedigreed cat registry in this state. The Council is supported by seven affiliated cat clubs, and we cater for all cat-lovers / owners / breeders of most cat breeds.
Our Secretary and Public Relations Officer voluntarily provide our free 'information and advice' service, because we all love cats and we want your pet to live a long and happy life.
Are you looking to find the right cat for you? If it is a purebred breed from a registered breeder, browse through our list of breeders here to find one who suits you. All GCCFSA breeders must follow a code of breeding ethics.
We recommend that buyers purchase only vaccinated and desexed kittens of appropriate age, and that pedigreed kittens be purchased only from breeders registered with an approved Cat Control. The registering bodies can confirm the registration status of breeders. If you plan to exhibit or breed, please check with the breeder and the registering bodies that your feline will be registered as a pedigree cat.
