    Hi Everyone I'm looking at purchasing a cat of a lady the lady has said he is a champion, would it show the title Ch on his gccf slip. The lady said he was run up before she purchased him. I thought it would show his status on her gccf slip am I correct?

    No. If by slip you mean his GCCF registration document, these are produced by GCCF at the time the litter is registered with them - usually as small kittens.

    You can email GCCF to ask if you have his registered name and registration number.

    Not sure I'm explaining myself right.
    A lady is selling an active boy and states he is a champion, should it state on his gccf slip that he is a champion. He was run up before she purchased him therefore when she transferred him to her name should it state this on his gccf card. On my breeding cats gccf slip it always shows if the parents are Gr ch or ch ect on there cards?
    Basically how can I tell if a cat is a champion?

    Edited due to re-reading.

    Yes contact the office to confirm his title as it should have been on his card when she transferred him.

    I agree with gskinner's post below, he's being moved from pillar to post when he should be placed in happy retirement.

    Sorry, I see what you mean now. I would do as Oriental slave suggests and check with GCCF office.

    Including his breeding home, yours will be his third or fourth home and I hope his last. I'm well aware I'm speaking out of turn but it deeply upsets me to see breeding cats go from pillar to post.
