13 Day Rule

Exhibitors please note that the above rule requires 13 days between any cat from the same household being shown not 13 clear days. This means that cats being shown at the Midland shows on 19th February 2023 may also enter the Northern Ireland show on 4th March 2023.


British Long Hair Variants

British Longhair variants, (shorthaired cats with a BLH parent, can now be shown in the equivalent BSH classes as they are identical to BSH who carried a gene for longhair, and all will be judged by the BSH SOP for quality. It is hoped that this will be possible from the Midland shows but is dependant on the IT system being ready.

Should we be registering as breeders under the Animal Health & Welfare Regulations? How do we import cats/kittens from the UK post Brexit? Vetting prospective owners. These are some of the topics we can discuss and share information on.

Betty Dobbs will cease acting as Registrar from 1st September. We will then be contracting out our registrations, transfers and prefix applications to the GCCF. In order to facilitate a smooth transfer we will be closing down our service from 1st – 12th September. Please do not send any applications during this period.  Paperwork must be with Betty by 31st August in order to be processed by her.


The new service will be on line but there will be arrangements for those with no computer access. Watch this space for further details. If you have any queries please contact chair@gccfi.com  Please also note updated price list effective from September.


The Executive & Council would like to take this opportunity of thanking Betty for her enormous contribution to the GCCFI and for continuing while we finalised new arrangements.

Sorry for delay in replying Daniel. The GCCF are having teething problems with their new system and don't want to put us on line until they are sorted. In view of this it could be the beginning of January but hopefully sooner.
When will online registrations be available ?
