Cattery Name Selection Tool

The choosing and registering of a cattery name with the Cat Fanciers’ Association has sometimes proven to be rather challenging simply because of the large number of names, and similar names, that are already registered. Now, using this cattery name search tool to aid you, the entire name selection process has been simplified. Using the links below, select the first letter of the cattery name you have chosen. An alphabetical list will be presented containing existing registered cattery names that begin with the letter you selected. There is also an option to preview registered cattery names that begin with numbers (“#”).

A | B | C | D | E | F | G | H | I | J | K | L | M | N

O | P | Q | R | S | T | U | V | W | X | Y | Z | #

When choosing a cattery name, first check the rules governing the acceptability of a cattery name. Once you have used this tool to verify that your chosen cattery name is indeed unique, you will want to verify that an additional three names are also available. The Cattery Name Application requires that four names be listed in the order of preference. When you submit the cattery name application, do NOT list a name that you do not want. Once you have chosen a potential cattery name (or names), you can apply to register your cattery name using our online catalog, OR using a PDF form. We hope that, with the use of this tool, your first preference for a cattery name will be acceptable when the application is received in our office. Note: CFA will not “reserve” a cattery name pending receipt of an application.
