TICA has found the perfect — or is it PURR-fect? — partner to promote the health and welfare of cats and kittens: Embrace Pet Insurance.
Embrace Pet Insurance is an online pet insurance provider built on a deep commitment to providing a higher standard of care and customization to pet parents. A policy from Embrace ensures that no pet parent will ever have to sacrifice the health and well-being of their pet for financial reasons.
What’s unique about Embrace is it’s the only pet insurance provider that allows cat owners to design their own custom pet health insurance policy.
“Responsible pet ownership, encouragement of the best possible health care for pets, and building a positive influence in the cat breeder community are foundational philosophies for TICA,” said Vickie Fisher, President of TICA. “Embrace Pet Insurance shares these goals. And, Embrace provides the most comprehensive coverage and services that TICA feels most benefit their members, cat breeders, and cat owners.”
Is that cat REALLY that limp? That’s what I heard from a lady at a show one day…and when I turned around I had to laugh because one of TICA’s junior exhibitors was walking around with a Ragdollabout as large as her…and that cat looked like it was dead (asleep) in her arms. I told the lady it was a Ragdoll.
Maybe it’s that easy-going manner that made the Ragdoll TICA’s second highest registered cat at the end of 2008. They’re beautiful blue-eyed, large, affectionate cats that get along with children and other animals. And they make the wonderful single-person cat, or apartment dweller.
They are one of the largest breeds of cat surprisingly, and you’d never know it. Their fur is rabbit-like, medium length and believe or not, there’s very little shedding! If you’ve never seen a Ragdoll, check our breeders list to see if there’s one near you…then contact them and find out when they’ll be at a show so you can go see one in person.
I know when you peer into those deep blue eyes that look like deep pools of water, you’ll fall in love!
Koala (an Oriental Shorthair) and Amigo (a Bengal) took the airwaves this week when they were interviewed on Albuquerque’s country western station Big I 107.9 Morning Show to promote this weekend’s Feline Fiesta show!
Both boys were a hit with hosts Tony, Lynn and Myles, and did a pretty good job of promoting the 16-ring show that will be held this Saturday, May 9 and Sunday, May 10 at the School Arts Building at the New Mexico State Fairgrounds (300 San Pedro Blvd. NE
Albuquerque, NM 87198).
If you’re a cat lover, you can’t miss it! come by and see the many other cats and kittens that will be at the show between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. both days. You can even get a $1 coupon off the gate by clicking here.
You can’t miss Amigo and Koala, now can you?
