Cattery Name Registration
The purpose of a cattery name is to identify the breeder and/or owner of a cat or kitten and to identify the line of breeding. A new cattery name will be registered for an initial five (5) year period. The fee is $75.00.
You must read the following prior to placing your order for a cattery name:
- Regulations regarding cattery names
- Check to see if the name you have chosen is different enough from already registered CFA cattery names.
A registered cattery name can be renewed for an additional five (5) year period. The fee is $50.00
Now you can submit your cattery renewal using your eCat Online Services account, and have it be effective immediately!! Simply log on to your account, and go to the "catteries" section, and follow the prompts to link your cattery to your account, and process your renewal.
Cattery owners now have the option of paying for a permanent recording of their chosen cattery name at any time. Breeders have the option of paying for a permanent name designation with the initial cattery name request or at any time they would like to have this procedure done. This fee would be in addition to the charge for the initial cattery name request. Once the permanent cattery name request is requested and accomplished no further renewal fees will be required.
If a new person wants to establish a cattery name and opts for a lifetime permanent name with CFA the charge would be $75 for the initial process and $100 for the lifetime registration fee for that name.
The current option of a $50 fee for the 5 year time frame would remain in place for those breeders not wishing to request a permanent cattery name. If at any time a breeder wishes to request the permanent name the fee would be $100.
If you are requesting a permanent cattery name IN ADDITION to a new application, please use the appropriate sections of the page to request the new application first. Then, use this section to add the $100.00 permanent cattery name fee.
