GCCF Codes

GCCF Codes





The chart below has been created to assist in the recognition of the breed colours and their codes.  We have included the old codes for comparision as well as the new codes known as GEMS codes. The letters are a mnemonic for GCCF EASY MEMORY SYSTEM.   We hope that you find this information useful.


An override is provided for any Tortie males (rare).  If any breeder is unsure about their code the GCCF will deal with any problems on 01278 427575.  Should a male Tortie prove to be fertile and the breeder wish to place the cat on the active (breeding) register this will need to be discussed with the registrar at the GCCF
