Online Litter Application Tutorial - please read before you begin

Litter applications are initiated by the owner of the Dam. Litters registered within 4 months of the birth date cost $10; the fee is $15 thereafter.

What you’ll need before you start:

  • Sire’s registration number & the date his registration certificate was issued
  • Dam’s registration number & the date her registration certificate was issued (found on Cat Registration Certificate)
  • Your breeder number
  • Birth date of the litter
  • Number of kittens
  • Your credit card.

Please note: If you do not own the Sire as well as the Dam, you must provide the sire owner’s name and email address. An email will be sent to this person. After the sire’s owner has responded, you will be notified via email, and the litter application will proceed.

  • From your Home Page, click Register a Litter Online
  • Key in the Sire’s registration number and the date his certificate was issued.
  • Key in the Dam’s registration number and the date her registration certificate was issued.

The Dam owner(s) will be considered the Owner of this litter - if the dam was leased at mating time, check the 'Dam is leased' box, and supply the lessee's name.

  • Key in the birth date of the litter (MM/DD/YYYY format)
  • Enter the number of living kittens (total of male & female) You may opt to prepay kitten registrations (a yellow slip will be issued instead of blue).
  • Enter your Breeder number and (optional) Cattery number of Co-breeder of this litter.

Note - if you are a new breeder and do not have a CFA-issued breeder/cattery number, you must submit your litter application by mail - see for a document you can print out and mail to us at:

By clicking ‘Submit'' and checking the box, you certify that the information is true and accurate, to the best of your knowledge. This takes the place of your signature, and is legally binding.

  • You may enter multiple litter applications at any given time
  • When all have been entered and verified and added to the cart, select 'Check Out' and enter your credit card information. Upon acceptance of your credit card, CFA will post the litters to our registration database. You will receive an email notification of same.
  • Please note: The online registration system will send an email to the sire’s owner, if different from dam. The litter will be pending until the sire's owner replies.

Printing of Certificates, Blue & yellow slips:

We will prepare a pdf document for each litter processed, as well as pdf copies of ‘Blue slips’ for each kitten reported, which will be accessible from your Home Page. You can use Adobe Acrobat Reader (a free product available online) to view and print your documents. Color printers are preferred, but not required.


The initial release of the Online Litter system will NOT allow simultaneous online registration of kittens. We plan to incorporate that feature into our upcoming Online Cat registration system.
