Pedigree

Dear breeders!

You are reminded that, in accordance with the FIFe rules, all kittens born must be registered in Felis Britannica.

The registration must take place before the kittens are registered with any other organisation.

If a cattery is found in which kittens have not received registration in Felis Britannica, and a pedigree issued; or if the kittens have been registered elsewhere, prior to registration with Felis Britannica, the registered owner of cattery concerned will face disciplinary proceeding. This may result in cancellation of the cattery name with FIFe and the cancellation of your membership

Imports/Ownership Change



We do require a full certified pedigree, proof of ownership/transfer slip and completed registration form for all imports/ownership change.

If a stud over 10 months, then a certifcate of entirety completed by a vet, is also required. Some breeds under FIFe rules need genetic tests completed before cats can be registered on the active list. It is also a good option to include proof of chip at registration so that all paperwork is complete.


Litter Registration



A litter registration form needs to be completed and if you are not the owner of the stud a mating certificate is also required. Only 2 litters may be registered without a cattery name being applied for.


Please be aware that if the stud you have used is not fully registered with Felis Britannica you will need the following as well;

  • Original Certified Pedigree
  • Certificate of Entirety
  • Proof of chip registration
  • Breed genetic tests required under FIFe rules

Cattery Application

To apply for a cattery name we must have at least 3 choices or the form cannot be processed. You cannot use a breed name within the cattery name and it cannot be similar to any already registered FIFe cattery name. These can be check at the FIFe website under cattery names search list.


Amendments

If you require an amendment or a pedigree re print then you need to supply the information required wirh the request in writing. If a colour change, chip details, CoE, CoH, genetics tests etc need to be added then please include your original pedigree and the proof.
