GCCF Maine Coon Registration Policy - Latest Information & FAQ - Updated July 2024

The updated registration policy is now in operation.

Please read the registration policy (click here to view) to see the latest requirements before you apply to GCCF for cat or kitten registrations/transfers to the active register including importation of cats from other cat registering bodies or if you currently have cats registered on the GCCF Active Register. There is now a list of DNA tests which must be completed for any applications to have cats or kittens placed on on the GCCF active breeding register from 1st January 2024. We strongly advise reading the new registration policy and contacting GCCF for the required tesing and a list of organisations which are approved to conduct these tests before you arrange testing to take place. 

The policy has now been amended to enable DNA swab tests to be performed by either a vet or a RVN registered vet nurse. (July 2024)

  Recent Letter sent to GCCF Judges

A letter was recently circulated to all GCCF judges who judge Maine Coons. The MCBAC and the club committee felt that this information should be shared with the wider public. If you show with GCCF, or breed and sell kittens for showing with GCCF we strongly advise that you read the circulated document Maine Coon Breed Advisory Committee Letter to Judges (pdf format)

Club membership is open to anyone, you do not have to own a Maine Coon to join. Many of our members do not breed or show, but just enjoy living with a Maine Coon and the club caters for everyone, even those who don't own a Maine Coon but just like the breed. Langford Vetinary Services offer a 20% discount on their Feline Genetic Testing Services to fully paid up members of the club. Please contact Steve Butters for the discount code to use.

The club holds several events each year. We publish three newsletters, as well as holding the club show, and social events. We produce a Maine Coon Calendar each year. Yes, the club even publishes its own calendar, with photos of members’ cats on each page!
