and organizes the examines. The WCF has established exhibition rules that determine both the sequence of an exhibition, and the division of the
cats in separate classes. Generally, the WCF is designed to promote
international contacts of the cat clubs affiliated. Our new logo depicts the six continents on which the WCF has members. The rainbowcoloured
continents are framed by our premise.
The rainbow is a symbolic bridge between the 6 continents on which the WCF is established. It signifies acceptance of the diversity of life together with the common bond of love of cats. That is what makes the WCF so special.
