Welcome to the

Western Province


The Western Province Cat Club is the oldest club in South Africa. We are affiliated with the Southern Africa Cat Council and throughout the year we hold shows with various associations in the Western Cape. 

Membership to the Western Province Cat Club is open to everyone – from breeders of all types to every cat lover. There are four classes which include neutered cats, entires, kittens and domestic cats. Your cat doesn’t need a fancy name to participate. All cats are special and deserve to be admired.
