The Cat Fanciers’ Association is a not-for-profit organization founded in 1906. CFA has grown steadily over the years from its humble beginnings, licensing two shows to licensing approximately 400 shows each season, worldwide. Membership in CFA is granted to clubs who have gone through an application and election process. Currently, CFA has over 600 member clubs. CFA shows are judged by individuals who have met high qualification criteria and have completed a rigorous training program which qualifies the judges to evaluate the show cats using a CFA Breed Standard for each one of its recognized breeds. To date, CFA has registered over 2 million pedigreed cats.
