Full Membership

Applications for full membership are accepted from people who live in the Manawatu - Horowhenua region or the areas bounded by Bulls/Marton, Taihape, Otaki and Dannevirke.

The Palmerston North Cat Club committee will consider applications from people outside of this area. Applications for full membership require a proposer and seconder, both of whom must be Full financial members of the Palmerston North Cat Club Inc.

For breeders and people requiring endorsement for a new NZ Cat Fancy Prefix to breed cats the following conditions apply:
