Considerations for Joining a Registry


Cat Show in Wales

Before you join any club or registry, here are some thoughts to consider:

  1. What will sending your money do for you and your cats?
  2. What can you do for the group?
  3. Are there shows held in your area?
  4. How long has the group been in service?
  5. What is the group's financial situation? Will you receive a quarterly financial report? How many people are overseeing the money and for what is it being used?
  6. Are the records kept in order?
  7. Are there any lawsuits against/for the group? (Research both sides.)
  8. Will you have a say in the business?

Remember that cat clubs and registries are fun, but when money is involved, they are also businesses.
