The Sphynx Breeders Association

At the GCCF Council Meeting on Wednesday, 21 June, a decision was made to provisionally recognise Sphynx Cats.

As our Members have been the main instigators in achieving this, we would like to thank our many supporters in the Cat Fancy, especially the Colourpoint, Rex-coated & AOV Cat Club and the Essex Cat Club - without them this would never have been possible.

We are all looking forward to seeing Sphynx on the show bench and do hope they fulfill all that is expected of them.
