World Cat Congress

International co-operation, harmony and understanding in the name of the cat

The Italian cat club (Associazione Nazionale Felina Italiana, ANFI) organized the World Congress of Feline Associations, which was held in Venice in June 1994. The purpose of the congress was to promote better understanding and cooperation among the world’s various cat associations in matters of mutual interest and concern such as cat legislation and feline welfare which affects all cat lovers, from the pedigree breeder to the pet owner.

The World Cat Congress has since evolved into a full-fledged institution. In March, 1999 a charter was established setting out the WCC’s aims and objectives, membership requirements, the structure of its meetings, and funding. A full constitution was drawn up in September, 2003, to further underscore the desire of the member organisations to unite the cat fancy worldwide.

The World Cat Congress has is own website.
