American Cat Fanciers Association

The American Cat Fanciers Association (ACFA) is an American non-profit organization formed with the intent of allowing for greater flexibility in the development of pedigreed cats.

The ACFA has become one of the largest cat registries in the world for purebred, pedigreed cats, experimental breeds of cats, and household pet cats.

ACFA sanctioned cat shows include classes for championship adult cats, championship altered cats, registered kittens from the age of four to eight months, and household pet cats. Wins from licensed shows can be used to claim titles including championships and multiple championships, grand championships and multiple grand championships, and the household pet titles of Royal Household Pet and Supreme Household Pet.

ACFA is directly affiliated with the Cat Aficionado Association of China, who use the ACFA breed standards.

    —D.H. (David Herbert)

    Every old woman with a wrinkled face, a furr’d brow, a hairy lip, a gobber tooth, a squint eye, a squeaking voice, or a scolding tongue ... a dog or cat by her side, is not only suspected but pronounced for a witch.
    John Gaule (fl. 1640–1660)
