Anyone know anything about showing in TICA?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I am planning on showing Cleo in TICA but do not know to much about it.
I do not want to ask Cleos breeder about that or anyone because I feel stupid for not knowing.
My Mentor does not know about TICA.
I have no idea what to enter her as either.

If you are talking about color - its whatever is on the registration slip. She would either be in the kitten class if not 8 months old on the first day of the show, or she would go in as an Open in the Alter Classes.

Anything else, you'll have to ask Nial.

If this is something that you've never done before, there should be no reason to feel stupid. I also only show in CFA so I can't help you with anything involving TICA. Maybe check their website to see if they might have a mentor program similar to CFA.

As for not asking your breeder, I would think he would want to know that you have questions. Personally, I would hope that anyone showing one of my cats would ask me questions.

I have shown both in ACFA and TICA, but just once in each. I preferred (personally) the format of the ACFA show I attended. I did find that people at both shows were willing to explain everything to me. Once you enter your cat in a TICA show you are given a catalogue, and that explains a lot about the point systems. I feel the same way about bothering people, I kind of like to try and figure things out as I go.

I am actually debating on entering a TICA show in Victoria at the end of June with my newest kitten. For my area, CFA does not have a lot of interest and cat shows in general are few and far between. Have to take what you can get. I have yet to see a Mau at any show other than the one I went across the Country to visit last Winter.

We have a lot of CFA shows here.
That is why I showed in CFA first.
There is a 3 day TICA show in Oct which is 45 minutes from here.
The other is in Reno on July 4th weekend.
I have been asked to show there but I doubt I can.
There was 1 Mau at last weeks show.
They are nice looking cats.
There are always a lot of Exotics and Persians at the shows.
I wonder if TICA has that many Persians.

I would guess TICA is heavy in the Bengals and Maine Coons. Persians seem to be a lot less in all associations.

ACFA is big on Maine Coons - the April show had at least 15 in each class (kitten, adult, alter)! We usually have less then 5 Persians total in the ACFA shows now.

We show in TICA. The Persian class here in Socal is usually 6-8 cats. We have alot of Bengals. We also get a high number of Ragdolls.

It will be nice to see other breeds of cats that can not be shown in CFA.
There were 16 Exotics and 33 Persians.
5 Maine Coon
9 Siamese
11 Tonkinese
3 Somalis all in Cleos class.
1 Siberian
1 Russian Blue
1 Chartreux
13 Orientals
1 Colorpoint Shorthair
1 European Burmese
1 Egyptian Mau
2 Singapura
4 Sphynx
5 Abyssinian
5 Rag Dolls
The rest of the breeds had a few.
No offense to the Persian people but it would be nice to see more of the other breeds.

That's about the layout in breeds of most shows - its always been only one or a few of the minority breeds. Sometimes that's a plus for finals.

In CFA you'll probably see more and more Ragdolls due to the fact they accepted our Mitteds and Colorpoints this year for Championship.

That is true.
Some of the cats are all from the same breeder.
The Abys and La Perms were the only breeders with that breed.
The 3 La Perms went against each other.
I have a friend that is a Ragdoll breeder that I lost contact with a few years ago.
Her catterys website is gone and her email bounces.
Maybe you would know her.
I am still looking for her.
