The Northern Cape / Free State Cat Club is affiliated to SACC and is situated in Kimberley in the Northern Cape.
The club membership is open to all cat lovers from all over South Africa. You do not have to own a pedigree cat to be a member of any cat club. You just need to love cats and be interested in anything cat-related.
We also hold championship shows annually. 6 cats from our region qualify at our shows to attend the Cat of the Year show (COTY) each year:
1 Household pets (unregistered cat), 1 kitten (pedigreed kitten), 2 Entires (breeding pedigreed cats) and 2 Neuters (sterilized pedigreed cats) from the Northern Cape/Free State region take part in this prestigious event as our club's representatives annually.
