A federation of cat registries has joined the Western governments in inflicting sanctions on Russia.
The Fédération Internationale Féline (FIFe) in a statement declared “it cannot just witness these atrocities and do nothing.” Consequently, it has introduced measures to prevent Russian cats from being registered into its records or entering into its exhibitions outside of Russia.
The press release stated, “no cat bred in Russia may be imported and registered in any FIFe pedigree book outside Russia, regardless of, which organization issued its pedigree”. And secondly, “no cat belonging to exhibitors living in Russia may be entered at any FIFe show outside Russia, regardless of, which organization these exhibitors hold their membership in”.
FIFe calls itself the” United Nations of Cat Federations” and includes 42 members from 40 countries, including Switzerland, the United Kingdom and Germany.
