Cat Fanciers’ Association (CFA)

The Cat Fanciers’ Association (CFA) was established in the United States in 1906. The CFA is currently the world’s largest registry of pedigreed cats. The association’s stated mission is preserving and promoting pedigreed breeds of cats while also enhancing the well-being of all cats. CFA’s first licensed cat shows were held in Buffalo, New York and Detroit, Michigan in 1906. The association today has a known presence in Europe, China, and Japan along with its well-established activity in the United States and Canada.

CFA has grown during the last century and celebrated its centennial in 2006. In 2024, CFA recognized 43 breeds for its Championship Class and two in its non-competitive classes (the Khao Manee and Toybob).

The current president of the CFA is Richard Mastin.
