Thanks to Nial for helping me with Cleos name and Tica.
Her name is Wizardgate Cleopatra Egyptian Queen.
I just got it changed in time.
They are sending her papers out tomorrow.

I like it - glad you caught it in time Good luck at your 1st show with her. Now when you get that, you can register her with CFA too.

Don't forget to ask TICA to send you a 5 gen pedigree so that you can register her with CFA easily!

I already paid for that and sent it in 2 weeks ago.

I was pretty sure I just read that a 3generation is all that is needed to register in CFA?? I only checked off 3gen for my two girls......ugh

I'm actually unsure if it's 3 gen or 5. Abys are 8 gen (same with Siamese). But in general 5 is the minimum I would recommend for any breed!

I had a choice on the blue slip for Tica.
It was either 3 or 5 generation.

very nice!

I think we only need 3 gen to transfer or dual register Siamese/Oriental with TICA UK as long as they are already with another registry (in our case mostly GCCF or FB/FiFe).

EDIT: Actually sorry I just re-read the thread and that info is in no way relevant to you because you're already with TICA and wanting to dual register elsewhere, rather than being registered elsewhere and wanting to dual register with TICA, and my info is for GCCF (a very strict registry!) cats being registered with TICA UK so I don't know whether the same rules apply elsewhere - my apologies for providing irrelevant info (it's not the first time tbh :o )

I'm glad the info I provided you helped save some back and forth time in the mail. Nice name choice!

Lol I really liked that name.
I guess I will get the papers any day since they were being mailed today.

Excellent!

I still think it's weird that the owners get to choose their cats names over there. I once asked one of my pet owners what they wanted to register their kitten and that was "Tara Blue Silk"

It's not that normal over here - I met my boy Sonic early on in his life before he was registered and I was lucky that the breeder said I could pick a name (up to 14 letters!) to go on his registration papers. But most breeders here like to name and register their litters with a theme such as "flowers" or "comedy actors" or "classic cars" or any other theme you can think of - mostly I think because when the breeder sees them in a show catalogue or even in e-mails from their kitten families they can instantly recall "that was one of the flowers litter, sire x and dam y", rather than having a multitude of unrelated names to try to remember for the rest of their lives, that they hadn't themselves chosen and have no meaning for them.

Yeah I like having themes in my litters too. What's Sonic's registered name? I have a Sonic too! Although he's going to his new home on Wednesday and I think he'll have a different name then.

That's what usually happens here, my breeder let me choose my own names though (except for Farley's who was older and already registered) she tends to use Aussie names, towns/rivers etc.

I think most would consider letting you name, I know some who will tell you the theme they want and let you pick a name accordingly.

Sonic's registered name is Beaububbly Sonic Boom - Beaububbly is his cattery name, and I chose Sonic Boom. I call him Sonic or Sonniboo, he answers to both. If I hadn't picked him, he would have been registered as Lucien.

I love the prefix! It's great and good choice of name too.

Sometimes I think its better if the breeder gives the name because I am bad with names.
post #24 of 29
Am good with names - just give me the color, sex and I'll help you pick out good names

Yes the prefix is great and sounds such a joyful name. It's a very small scale breeder and maybe not the best known on the show scene, but other breeders want to have her cats in their breeding programme because they are of decent show type (and also she specialised in dilutes especially fawns and cinnamon carriers) but they are above all renowned for their absolutely superb temperaments - I could not have gone to a better breeder for a pet cat.

Ep - would you go back to her and get a show quality cat to show one day?

Yes absolutely, I would absolutely go back to her for either pet or show cat without hesitation. Sonic's litter-brothers have done well at shows - he was the ugly duckling of the litter bless his heart! If I wanted a show cat at that point I would have picked either of his lilac siblings. Her cats look good and their temperaments are unbelieveable, I have no doubt that any kitten she bred would take to showing, because they are all so incredibly friendly and calm.

Having said that, I really would like a bicolour and she doesn't do those at all, so taking that into consideration I would probably go elsewhere, for no other reason than she doesn't do that colour!
