Welcome to the official website for the Russian Cat Council of Australia Incorporated

The Russian Cat Council of Australia Incorporated (RCCA Inc.) is a bipartisan council reaching across many associations in Australia to bring Russian cat breeders together with a common goal of exchanging information and improving the health and welfare of the Russian cat.

If you are interested in bringing a kitten or adult Russian into your home further information is available in our Russian Breeders list. 

We hope you enjoy your visit to the Russian Cat Council of Australia Incorporated website and welcome any comments, whether you are a member or a casual visitor.

We welcome feedback from both breeders & the general public; please feel free to contact the below Executive committee officers by email if you have a matter relating to the Russian breed.
