Bengal Registrations at GCCF down by 47%

The GCCF is the number one cat association in the UK. They report on their website that registrations of the Bengal cat are down by 47% for the period 2009 to 2010. The figures are as follows:
  • 2009 - 1996 registrations
  • 2010 - 1355 registrations
Breeders register their cats at the GCCF to ensure that they are formally accepted as purebred cats. You can see the GCCF registration policy on this page (new window). The figures are of a sufficient size to make the shift reliable but it is only one year. A trend over several years would be more conclusive - but see figures below. This may be a trend.

No one single cat breed went up to replace this downward trend for the Bengal.

Here are the overall figures:



The Bengal cat is second most popular on my long standing public (worldwide) poll.
