Welcome to the CFA Japanese Bobtail
Breed Council website.
We welcome everyone who is interested
in this natural, native cat of Japan!
What is a Breed Council?
The CFA Breed Councils were established in
1970 to serve as an advisory body on breed standards to the CFA Executive
Board. Each of the breeds recognized by CFA for championship competition
has its own Breed Council and Breed Council Secretary.
The CFA Breed Councils are comprised of individuals
experienced in their chosen breed/division section, and who meet other
eligibility requirements established by the CFA Executive Board. Each Breed
Council channels opinions and suggestions from the individual breeder to
the Board through the specific breed secretary, and the breed standard
is updated as the breed progresses. From time to time, each breed council
also updates its breed profile, a more informal introduction to the breed.
How can I join the Breed Council?
You must meet the requirements specified by
CFA, and submit a membership application, please visit http://www.cfa.org/Breeds/BreedCouncils/AboutBreedCouncils.aspx
