When bringing over Non Domestic cats to the UK they need to conform to DEFRA standards. If the necessary permissions are not sought the cats can be impounded even destroyed. Penny
Hmm...probably why there aren't any Chausies about these parts, then? Good to know about them having to conform to DEFRA standards, though, Penny. I had been thinking about maybe adopting an Egyptian Mau Shirazi (full of bright ideas, me!
) in the future, which is a long-haired Mau from Egypt that isn't currently a recognised breed in the UK. As far as I know, these cats are allowed in the UK, as the organisation states that they send their cats to the UK after stopping in France for six months, I think. Would these cats have to conform to DEFRA standards, too, do you know? Is the process of obtaining cats from abroad easy?
