False WCF-pedigrees


The board has recently been alerted to the existence of several false pedigrees, showing the WCF logo. The following Ukrainian clubs that have used the WCF logo are not WCF clubs, among others, but there can be many others:

Zoobest Corporation The Association of Cat Owners "Bricat"
Kiev Felinological Club Kitty
Felinological Centre PFC Pride
Club of Fanciers Cats UA
Felinologikal Association "Mr.&Mrs.Cat"

None of these pedigrees give the club registration code or contact details for the club.

WCF member clubs should be alert and when pedigrees are presented to them for any purpose, always check whether unknown clubs are legitimate WCF members. All member clubs are listed on the website.

Pedigrees should show the WCF logo and WCF registration number of the club. Contact details of the club should also be clearly indicated on the pedigree.

Pearl Jubilee 2018 - 30 years WCF


We want to set a sign!

Next year 30 years ago, three friends, who loved cats very much, founded the WCF.
We want to remind all on the occasion of our Pearl Anniversary in 2018 of the love for our furry friends and the fact,
that cats love is the base for the work in the WCF.

There will be the possibility for member clubs of WCF to hold the unique Pearl-Master Ring with the awarding of the title Pearl Master for the best two cats.
In this ring may participate all cats that are present on the exhibition - regardless of gender, age and breed.
Special emphasis should be placed in the awarding of the "Pearl Master" to the nature of cats.
We love lovely cats and "cuddlyness" and sweetness, so this shall be considered by the judge in addition to the evaluation of the standard.
This way we want to show, that the base in the WCF is not only about competing ideas but especially for the love we feel for our cats and our cats for us!

Cats on Pearl Jubilee Shows get double points for the Best Cat of WCF.

As present the organizing club will receive an official Pearl Jubilee banner of the WCF.
The banner will be sent by DHL.
Please inform the office in time if another delivery is wanted, the additional costs must be taken over by the organizing club.

The Pearl Jubilee Show including the Pearl Master Ring, must be submitted to the Board as a special permission.
Requests for permission can be made now, the license fee each day amounts 125 Euro.

More information is available upon request at the office of the WCF at wcf@wcf-online.de.

Aphrodite’s Giant and Burmese in the color Silver


Dear members,


the General Assembly 2017 has voted against the recognition of the breed Aphrodite‘s Giant and color Silver for the breed Burmese


However, Aphrodite‘s Giant and Silver Burmese cats have been bred in good faith and legal WCF pedigrees have been issued.


The color Silver for the breed Burmese is recognized by the WCC member NZCF and the race Aphrodite's Giant by the WCC member ACF, so the cats can participate in WCF exhibitions with all rights.


The Board of WCF therefore decides that all WCF pedigrees for Aphrodite‘s Giant and Silver Burmese issued before April 1st 2017  are valid.


Pedigrees from April 1st, 2017 will be issued with the remark RIEX (experimental).

Obituary Nini Phalempin



On Tuesday, 4 April 2017, we lost our dear friend, respected member of the cat fancy and All Breeds judge. This is the end of an era for the cat fancy.

Nini was the person who introduced me to the European Cat Fancy, after meeting her in London at a cat show, as a young and inexperienced judge. She, together with her friend, Paulo Ruschi was the inspiration and driving force behind the establishment of the WCF in South Africa and the expansion in South America. She supported and guided and most of all invited into her home many judges and committee members of young and experienced clubs from all over the world and introduced members of the cat fancy from many countries and affiliations to each other. She was one of the first judges to officiate in Russia. Nini’s famous phrase was: “I’m making public relations.”

Nini was an Independent All Breeds judge, as well as committee member of the oldest Independent Cat Club in Belgium, while her husband, Claude was the President. She joined the WCF and was a proud member of CASA, the South African Club. She attended the WCF GA meetings over the years, either as delegate of clubs who could not be present, or as observer.

There is not enough space to list all of her achievements, other than to say again that this is a huge loss to the Cat Fancy world wide. It was a privilege to visit her in January 2017, before she became ill and take this last photograph of her. Rest in Peace, Dear Nini – my inspiration and “Belgium mother”.

President CASA & 2nd Vice President, WCF

Registered cattery names


Because of recent events:

Every cattery name of members of a WCF club and their attached subclubs have to be registered with the WCF.

Breeders, who have provably registered their cattery name in another organization, are permitted to keep their name. Should the cattery name be elsewhere already taken, the country code must be added behind the name.

Only for WCF registered catteries WCF pedigrees can be issued.
http://www.wcf-online.de/WCF-EN/zuechterinfo/zwinger.html
With this publication every club has been given the possibility to register their non-recorded cattery names until 31 May 2017.

Every (further) contravention will be punished.
