CFA Publications

CFA's publications department currently produces three publications, the Online Almanac, the CatTalk Almanac, and our flagship publication, the CFA Yearbook. 

The CFA Yearbook

The first CFA Yearbook was published in 1958, and in 1973 it was expanded to a large (9" x 12") hard cover designer edition. In 2003, the Yearbook was redesigned as an 8-1/2" x 11" format. The YEARBOOK is published annually with the continuing history of CFA and exceptional pictures of the finest pedigreed cats in the world.

The CFA Yearbook contains the current CFA Constitution; award winners; Grand Champions, Grand Premiers and Distinguished Merits; interesting articles and feature stories by breeders, research scientists, and veterinarians; as well as breeder advertising.

The CFA YEARBOOK is a prized addition to any library - order yours today!
