Welcome to the website of the South-West British Shorthair Cat Club (SWBSCC). We hope you enjoy your visit.

On the 26th November 2005 the club held its inaugural meeting which was attended by a group of breeders and owners dedicated to the British Shorthair breed.

The aims and purposes of the club are:

1) To encourage and promote interest and understanding in the welfare, breeding and exhibiting of the British Shorthair.

2) To support shows for the exhibiting of all cats.

3) To provide the means of meeting together of persons interested in the breed and its welfare.

We gained our affiliation to the GCCF in the Autumn of 2009. We then held our first show in 2011 and now hold a Championship show here in the South West each year at the end of March.
