    Cat Breeds in the UK
This table lists the breeds recognised by the Governing Council of the Cat Fancy and the status they have had from 1st June 2007.

The "GCCF status" column also indicates the way the breeds/colours are grouped by GCCF for judging: each box represents an Open class. These are the classes which will be found at any all-breed show. Any changes of status take place from the start of the new show season - 1st June.

There are separate Open classes for male adults, female adults, male neuters, female neuters and kittens under nine months old. Kitten classes may also be split male/female, by age, or even by colour since there are no certificates involved.

Adult cats of Championship status breeds compete for Challenge Certificates (Premier Certificates for Neuters). Three Challenge (Premier) Certificates from three different judges make a cat a Champion (Premier) and it can then compete in the Grand class for Grand Challenge (Premier) Certificates; three of these from three different judges make it a Grand Champion (Premier). A Champion (Premier) may compete in its Open class as well as, or instead of, its Grand class.

A Grand Champion (Premier) can compete in the Imperial class for Imperial Grand Challenge (Premier) Certificates; five of these from five different judges make it a Imperial Grand Champion (Premier). A Grand Champion (Premier) may compete in either its Open or its Grand class in addition to its Imperial class, if the owner wishes, but may not enter all three classes; Grand Champions (Premiers) do not have to compete in the Imperial Grand class - the owner may have another cat in this class, or may know that the cat is not of sufficiently high standard - in which case it may compete in either its Open class or Grand class, or both.

Adults and Neuters of Provisional status breeds compete for Intermediate Certificates, but cannot gain a title. Adults, Kittens and Neuters of Preliminary status breeds are awarded Merit Certificates if they are considered of high enough quality.

Titles are awarded on the same basis by the Governing Council of the Cat Fancy of Ireland and GCCF registered cats may also be registered with GCCFI and compete at their shows. Since 1st June 1999, cats which gain a Championship or other title with both GCCF and GCCFI are entitled International Champion, International Grand Premier etc.

Specialist breed shows only put on classes for their own breed or breed section. They are sometimes given special permission to split some of the classes further as they often attract a higher entry of their own particular breed than is found at an all-breed show.

There are different classes at the Supreme Show and cats can win higher titles there.

At all-breed shows the breeds are split into sections:

At all-breed shows and many specialist shows there is also a separate section for non-pedigree Household Pets.
