The current time for all registrations is 4-6 weeks from correct paperwork being received by the Felis Britannica Registrar. We are now accepting most registrations via email. The exception to this being imports which will require the original hard copy pedigree being posted to the Pedigree Secretary.
FIFe rules now state that kittens a cannot leave for new homes until they are a minimum of 14 weeks of age and have been microchipped. Proof of microchipping is to be sent to the Pedigree Secretary to be added to the Felis Britannica Pedigree Database
To apply for a cattery name we must have at least 3 choices or the form cannot be processed. Your choices cannot be longer than 18 characters including spaces. 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. http://fifeweb.org/wp/catnames/cattery.asp
