    I'm getting married soon but getting a kitten next week that I will need to transfer into my name. I spoke to the GCCF about this & they told me that if he was in my name (like my current cat) that they would change my name over for me but charge me £10 for a replacement certificate each. So I am still not 100% on what to do.

    I don't think it matters. If you use your hubby to be's name and you want to show he will have to sign the entry forms. Even when you get married, I don't think it would be necessary to change your name on the reg. Lots of women retain their maiden names for parts of their lives. A friend at work uses her maiden name for work and her married name everywhere else.

    If you have a prefix or get a prefix then keep the same name otherwise you will end up having to transfer any cats registered in your old name.

    Do you think they would have an issue with me using my new name then? I would rather lose my maiden name asap.

    I'd save yourself the money and put him in the name you are going to be. They don't know when you are getting married.

    I agree, they don't ask to see your marriage cert or any proof of ID so you can call yourself whatever you like, as long as its consistent on show entries. How about Princess Consuela Bananahammock like Phoebe on Friends :biggrin: :biggrin:
