• About CATS NSW

CATS NSW is a cat governing body in New South Wales and the ACT and proudly affiliated with the Australian Cat Federation Inc.

Mission Statement

CATS NSW is a progressive, welcoming, non-profit organisation and our key mission is to promote the welfare of all cats, responsible and ethical breeding of pedigreed cats, and the showing of pedigreed cats and de-sexed domestic cats.

As a governing body, CATS NSW offers its Clubs and breeders advice and guidance where possible. The Committee of CATS NSW meets on a monthly basis to discuss current issues affecting Clubs, breeders and the wider cat fancy, and effectively manage our organisation.

Our Constitution

The Constitution is the set of rules that governs how Cats NSW works. It defines what the components of Cats NSW are, what powers they have, and how they are applied. To view the Constitution of Cats NSW here.
