About WOC

World Organisation of Cats (WOC) is the leading international non-governmental felinological organisation 

United in our appreciation of cats, we strive to introduce ever higher standards and newest tech in felinological practice. Despite its recentness WOC is the optimal and sustainable solution for consolidation of felinologists, clubs and organisations from around the globe, and it is all made from scratch for the modern and ever-changing world.

We maintain values of relentless self-improvement and deep understanding of breeders, clubs and organisations, as well as preserving flexibility to best meet their needs.

WOC directs all resources towards breed development and research, and co-operates with breeders, clubs, leading research institutes and others, including industry-leading pet nutrition companies, all to protect and enhance the lives of our pet companions.

Standards Commission, aided by the Breeder Commission, perfects existing standards and proposes new ones, all while carefully monitoring modern tendencies of breed evolution, colour investigation and others. 

Our Government Board, in accordance with existing international conduct, has established a Scientific Commission to support and coordinate genetic research of new and existing feline breeds and genetic anomalies. 

The principal mission we put for ourselves is to prepare proficient and skillful experts. The Judge Commission, together with our Expert Training Committee, creates and updates reference books and toolkits, as well as a host of events aimed towards education of new and advanced training of existing experts: master classes, lectures, webinars et al.

Show Commission, as well as WOC Regional Directors, are tasked with refining our set of rules, as well as enforcing fair play while minding regional characteristics and requests.

The Board and Commission are guided by democratic values, as well as the International Law and local legislations of WOC member states. 

The organisation is sworn to uphold a high standard of transparency in its working processes, achieved by modern IT-solutions and practices.
