The FBRL is a wonderful resource for cat breeders. In operation since November 1994, the FBRL is
the largest and oldest continually run, dedicated cat breeder
referral service on the World Wide Web. It has earned a
reputation as a reliable resource for quality cat breeders,
as well as one of the busiest. With top placement in prominent
search engines such as Yahoo!, Google, and AOL NetFind,
and more than 100,000 unique visitors a month*, it's one of
the best and most cost-effective methods for advertising
your cattery locally, nationally, and worldwide.

know to list your cattery ... and whether it's the right
choice for you and your program.

about their catteries, change contact information such as
phone, web or email, add or delete a listed breed, add or
change a listing photograph, or cancel their subscriptions.

use the Add Your Cattery link above.
Submit or Change a Photo for your cattery listing
If you wish to add a new photo or change an existing photo, use this form to submit your photo directly from your hard drive. This form is ONLY for cattery listing photos; pictures for Litter Announcements and Retired Friends are handled differently.
Did you have a listing at one time, and don't find yourself listed now?
It's almost always because your subscription expired. In this case, you should simply use the Add
Your Cattery to re-list your cattery. (If it was for any other reason, you would have been involved in a complaint investigation, and would know clearly why your listing no longer appears).
Existing FBRL listers may
add or remove Retired Friends listings. Please note that
ONLY paid subscribing breeders or pre-approved pedigree
rescue organizations may add cats to Retired Friends.
New Retired Friends listings are announced on Twitter through FBRLRetired.
