The Fédération Internationale Féline (FIFe) is a federation of cat registries. There are currently forty-three member organizations in forty one countries. Membership spans Europe, South America, and Asia.[1] FIFe is one of the nine members of the World Cat Congress.[2]

History

Founded by Marguerite Ravel, the federation was unofficially started in 1949 in Paris, France, at a meeting between the Fédération Féline Française (French Cat Federation), the Royal Cat Society of Flanders and the Società Felina Italiana (Italian Cat Society).[3] At the organisation's first general assembly, in Ghent, Belgium, the federation was officially founded. For the occasion, all participants received a cat shaped statuette, in pink sandstone, that Marguérite Ravel had commissioned from the sculptor Jean Martel.[4]

The original name was Fédération Internationale Féline d'Europe or FIFE. In 1972 the Brazilian Cat Club joined, making it necessary to change the Euro-centric name of the federation. The "d'Europe" was dropped, and the abbreviation was changed to FIFe.[4]

Organisation

FIFe is organized into national sub-federations (e.g. Felis Britannica in the United Kingdom) which handle pedigree registrations, cat shows and awards in each country. FIFe's Executive Board and General Assembly are supported by five commissions:

  • Judges & Standard Commission
  • Breeding & Registration Commission
  • Show Commission
  • Health & Welfare Commission
  • Disciplinary Commission

Recognized breeds

Currently the FIFe recognizes 48 official breeds of cats for championship competitions. All breeds are divided into 4 categories and identified with a three-letter code, according to the Easy Mind System (EMS). The EMS is a system used by FIFe, and all its members, to easily identify cats by alphanumeric codes.[5]
