There's much to see here. So, take your time, look around and learn all there is to know about the CFA. We hope you enjoy our site and take a moment to drop us a line.
The motto of the The Cat Fanciers’ Association NewBee Program is “Positive Experience. Positively Fun!” We believe that exhibiting pedigreed cats should be a positive, rewarding experience. The sport may be competitive, but the rewards of learning about and improving your breed and connecting with exhibitors (who may even turn out to be lifelong friends) is the real reward that the cat fancy has to offer.For more information, please visit: https://cfanewbee.org
The CFA Ambassador Program will help exhibitors give a public face to the cat fancy and offers knowledge transfer from those of you who know to the interested public. You will see some of us wearing buttons that say ” Ask Me.” The buttons are to provide the public with a contact person. If we don’t have the answer, we will get it. Our Handbook is a wonderful tool for talking about CFA and their positions on many cat related subjects. For more information visit: https://cfa.org/ambassador-program/
CFA has developed a program for owners of catteries who find themselves overwhelmed for various reasons.
The program aims to help and support breeders, who find themselves in an out-of-control situation, by making assistance available through other breeders. Help and support will be provided upon request. http://www.cfabreedersassist-rescue.org
You’ve all heard about dog agility competitions, and have thoroughly enjoyed watching the dogs whip through the obstacle courses with determination and speed. It’s amazing how they can climb up and down those high steps and race through those weave pole areas with such ease and speed. Now, can you actually imagine a cat lowering its dignity enough to do that?
But, of course! Cats are definitely trainable and most are willing to follow a feather or dangling toy anywhere! For more information, please visit: http://agility.cfa.org/index.shtml
Do you want to show and/or breed pedigreed cats? If so, then the CFA Mentor Program is the place to start!
There is a lot to learn, and you will surely have many questions about things such as planning a cattery, selecting foundation breeding cats, raising kittens, grooming and nutrition. An experienced CFA mentor can offer guidance and advice to point you in the right direction and help you make good decisions along the way.
Signing up for the Mentor Program is easy! Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
The Winn Feline Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit public charitable organization. Founded in 1968 by The Cat Fanciers’ Association, Inc., Winn supports health related studies into medical problems affecting cats. Projects funded by The Winn Feline Foundation have provided much of the information that is used every day in all aspects of feline veterinary medicine.
The Winn Foundation also strives to improve the health of cats through awareness and communication — by providing information, guidance, referrals and resources concerning feline health matters to the CFA Board of Directors, breeders, veterinarians, humane/welfare organizations, the media and cat owners — and by obtaining data and information which will benefit those working to better the health of cats.
