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.
