Combined registration and transfer fee


Following recent comments on various cat fancy related media the GCCF would like to point out that the item on the Council agenda relating to a combined registration and transfer fee has been brought to Council by the Abyssinian Cat Association as a discussion item. It is not a proposal to be voted on, although a straw poll of feeling from Council may be taken if deemed appropriate. We trust the healthy debate on the Abyssinian Cat Association suggestion continues in the meeting.
