The World Cat Congress does not support the new development of breeds based on mutations or characteristics that have a negative effect on the welfare of the cat.
SACC encourages DNA testing in an attempt to promote such testing as a management tool in improved and ethical breeding practices.
SACC undertakes to ensure, with the records at its disposal, that pedigrees submitted by our breeders are correct, as per our Registration Rules, prior to certification. Note though that pedigreed animal breeding and registrations, to a high degree, rely on the integrity of breeders. SACC cannot guarantee the health or personality of a kitten, nor does it declare that any breeder/cattery is of good repute, as it is impossible to monitor all aspects of this. Both breeder and client should be 100% satisfied that all is in order prior to the kitten being adopted- this includes pedigree and Registration Certificate (change of ownership), Veterinary signed vaccination card, kitten starter pack and an information leaflet.eading 6

The SACC exists primarily to assist cat breeders and stakeholders in SACC by providing relevant, up-to-date information about SACC and pedigreed cats, focusing on topics related to:

  • pedigreed cats,

  • cat shows,

  • administration, and

  • the organized cat fancy at large.


As the central internet hub for all things SACC, this site strives to provide important news relevant to the SACC, cat breeds and the organized cat fancy, both local and international.


It also has a secondary purpose to portray SACC to the international cat community and the general cat-lover public at large, and those who want to know more about the organized cat fancy in South Africa and pedigreed cats in general.


The Southern Africa Cat Council's objectives include:

  • Administering the registration of pedigrees of cats and kittens

  • Promulgating the rules of the management of cat shows

  • Promoting the interest of breeders and exhibitors of cats

  • Ensuring the efficient co-existence of its Councils and offices

  • Promulgating rules, regulations and codes of ethics

  • Laying down standards for all Breeds in conjunction with Member Clubs, the Breed Council and the SA Council of Cat Judges

  • Promoting a knowledge of Cats and Breed Standards by investigating or to assist in investigations to ensure that the breeding of cats and the showing of cats are according to the highest standards

  • Training or to assist in training of persons for the breeding, judging, show management and stewarding of cats


Please be aware that there are many cat sales scam operations.  These companies or individuals often do not give a physical address other than a website address which is generally filled with named individual kittens for sale. Unfortunately these companies/individuals can be very plausible and will persuade you that the kittens are selling quickly and that payment must be made immediately. It is highly suggested that you do adequate research about the catteries and individuals before sending any money. 

SACC strongly recommends that transactions with Breeders be undertaken with the same caution and due diligence as one would devote to any business matter.
