Fédération Internationale Féline

The Fédération Internationale Féline (or FIFe) is a federation of Europe, South America, and Asia.

Founded by Marguerite Ravel, the federation was unofficially started in 1949 in Ghent, Belgium, the federation was officially founded. The original name was Fédération Internationale Féline d'Europe or FIFE. In 1972 the Brazilian Cat Club joined, making it necessary to change the Euro-centric name of the federation. The "d'Europe" was dropped, and the abbreviation was changed to FIFe.

FIFe is organized into national sub-federations, e.g. Felis Britannica in the United Kingdom, which handle pedigree registrations, cat shows and awards in each country.
