How Do I Join the CFA NewBee Group?

Want to meet other new breeders and exhibitors? Engage in a friendly space where you can ask questions and receive good advice? Join us on the CFA Mentor/NewBee Facebook group! It’s a private group filled with both new folks such as yourself, and “voices of experience” who can help you get the answers you need. We value kindness and guidance; no question is ever “dumb.”

How Do I Become a Protégé?

Being new to the cat fancy can be overwhelming, especially learning to breed and exhibit. Having an experienced person to talk to can help. And while the CFA Mentor Program cannot guarantee to find someone close by to help you, digital technology has brought us all closer together.

Sign up as a protégé of the CFA Mentor Program by completing the application.

More detailed information about what to expect as a protégé is available here.

How Do I Become a Mentor?
