Cat Breeder Referral Service
Welcome to the CAT BREEDER REFERRAL SERVICE (CBRS), brought to you by the Cat Fanciers' Association, the world's largest registry of pedigreed cats. Looking for a new kitten or cat? Need help locating a breeder? Use our CBRS search page to start your quest for a new feline to grace your home and enhance your life. Search criteria can be of your choice - by breed, by location, or by breed and location. If you need help to decide which breed will best suit your lifestyle, we suggest you visit our breed profiles for more detailed information on each breed.
Finding the kitten that is "right" for you: The "right" kitten can be easy to find if you follow a few guidelines. The kitten you pick will be your companion for approximately the next 18 years if it is kept indoors. We have a series of articles that will provide guidelines for you to follow and make your search much easier.
Adult cats make great pets too. Breeders often have mature cats that are retired from the show ring or a breeding program and may be available either for sale or adoption. Choose RETIRED ADULTS from the listing of breeds on our CBRS search page and you will find a wide variety of breeds and colors available.

Notes of interest: Pricing on pedigreed cats usually depends on type, applicable markings and bloodlines. Usually breeders make kittens available between twelve and sixteen weeks of age. After twelve weeks, kittens have had their basic inoculations and developed the physical and social stability needed for a new environment, showing, or being transported by air. Keeping such a rare treasure indoors, neutering or spaying and providing acceptable surfaces (e.g. scratching posts) for the natural behavior of scratching (CFA disapproves of declawing or tendonectomy surgery) are essential elements for maintaining a healthy, long and joyful life.
Disclaimer: CFA makes no representations or warranties with respect to the breeding or business practices of any of the persons included on the Cat Breeder Referral Service (CBRS). CFA strongly recommends that transactions with breeders be undertaken with the same caution and due diligence as one would devote to any important business matter.
