Pedigree cat: what it is
First of all, a cat is not officially purebred if he does not have a document certifying him and this document is precisely the pedigree. It is a feline identity card on which we find the origin, the main characteristics, including the breed, if the cat is actually purebred.
This doesn't mean we shouldn't buy cats that don't have this document, but let's avoid being cheated by those who swear to us that they are purebred but do not show any documents. The price is obviously very different, the tenderness is the love we will have for the kitten does not depend on its pedigree, Luckily.

For apply for the cats pedigree you can follow two paths. If we are buying the cat from a breeder, we can get it at the time of purchase, we must in truth demand it if the price we pay is that of a purebred specimen.

The second way that exists to have the pedigree cats consists in contacting Anfi, the Italian National Feline Association, which has certified these felines since 1934. It is not your only activity, of course, but we can ask you for the forms to fill in for the request, including for example the breeding certificate, the birth certificate, the veterinary declaration and the change of ownership.
