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.
