FIFe Breed Councils

Approved by FIFe General Assembly in 2002, Breed Councils came into effect on January 1st 2003. The Breed Councils are to be established for each breed in order to serve FIFe in an advisory capacity on breed standards, breeding rules and health issues. The Breed Council is to channel opinions and suggestions from the individual FIFe breeder through the Breed Council Secretary. The Breed Councils are represented at the General Assembly by the Breed Council Administrator.

The new Breed Council Rules are valid starting from 01.01.2011. In April 2011, the FIFe Board has agreed to combine the Breed Councils for Siamese, Balinese, Oriental Shorthair & Oriental Longhair Cats into one Breed Council. At the request of the majority of our BC members the FIFe Board added the Seychellois Shorthair, Seychellois Longhair to the Breed Council at the end of 2013. From 1 January 2016 Seychellois Shorthair will be named Siamese (with white) and the Seychellois Longhair Balinese (with white).

We hope this website will help all FIFe Siamese, Balinese, Oriental Shorthair and Oriental Longhair Cat breeders to keep in touch with the members of the official FIFe Breed Council for these breeds. All BC-members are passionate about Siamese, Balinese, Oriental Shorthair and/or Oriental Longhair Cats and hope you will join us in doing everything possible to promote and protect these exceptional breeds. Applications to become member of the FIFe SIA/BAL/OSH/OLH Breed Council should be sent to the club in which you hold FULL membership using the application form on the FIFe website.

We hope you enjoy our website and find it useful and informative. For any additional info you may need, please don't hesitate to contact our Breed Council Secretary.
