Brought to you by the Fanciers, FanciersHealth and Gene-Poole Mailing Lists, a group of cat breeders, exhibitors, show judges, veterinarians, and other ailurophiles (cat lovers) throughout the world, representing most cat breeds and associations worldwide.

Founded in 1993, the original Fanciers mailing list was a private, unmoderated list, intended for discussions or announcements specifically relating to showing and breeding cats. This included such diverse topics as feline veterinary medicine and home care, cattery management, cat show production, politics in the cat fancy, and the history and evolution of cat breeds. The list also served as a social group for breeders and exhibitors. With the advent of many other related mailing lists on the Internet, the original Fanciers list was discontinued by its founder, Jean Marie Diaz. However, the need for pedigreed cat owners to have a place to specifically discuss the health needs of their cats lead to the formation of the FanciersHealth Yahoogroup list in November of 2000. A group to discuss issues of feline genetics, Gene-Poole, was created in 1998.

The FanciersHealth  list membership numbers approximately 4000. Most of us are involved in the cat fancy to some extent, but we’re involved in many ways, representing every major cat related association, nearly every breed of cat, and many countries around the world. Some of the most renowned feline experts are among our ranks, including many cat show judges, board members of cat registries, cat geneticists, cat book authors, and respected veterinarians. Some members breed and/or show pedigreed cats, or show household pets (nonpedigreed cats); some put on cat shows and other events that educate and entertain, or produce publications about cats and the cat fancy; some work with breed rescue groups and other organizations devoted to animal welfare; some practice veterinary medicine, or participate in feline health research… and some of us aren’t involved in the “fancy” at all, but join to learn and share our thoughts about our beloved feline friends.
