Show Cats, Breeding Cats or Family pets are all much loved. Membership fees are kept to a minimum to allow all cat lovers the opportunity to be involved and have access to valuable information. General Meetings were originally held at Coldstream (5km out of Lilydale). The Club became incorporated in 2002. Traditionally the Club holds its Annual Show in the March or April depending on the fall of Easter; we still hold a show at this time of the Year.

In 2004 we decided to hold a show in September at Traralgon in the Latrobe Valley , where a number of its the members live, it is now an annual event. In April 2006, due to the dwindling numbers of members in the Melbourne area and an increase in the Latrobe Valley . The Club decided to move its base to Morwell.
