Floppycats? Well, it’s a blog dedicated to the Ragdoll , and written by Jennifer Dean!
TICA’s President Vickie Fisher was featured recently on Floppycats. No need to repeat what she had to share with cat lovers, visit Floppycats and read what Vickie has to share about cats, the cat fancy, showing cats and TICA.
The Ragdoll developed in the early 1960′s is a large affectionate, semi-longhaired cat with captivating blue eyes. One of the largest breeds in the cat fancy, the Ragdoll gets along well with children and other pets, including dogs, often living up to its name as it gets carried around the house in a child’s arms. These sturdy cats have no extreme features and blend easily in to the busy modern household
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.”
Take windmills, tulips, 500 beautiful cats, people from all around the world, and sprinkle in some wonderful seminars and discussion. You now have the annual meeting and show of the World Cat Congress! Hosted by Fédération Internationale Féline (FiFe), with a cat show organized by Mundikat Cat Club, the 2009 World Cat Congress was held in Arnhem, Netherlands, April 11-14.
The World Cat Congress, in partnership with Royal Canin, was established in 1994 to promote harmony in the cat fancy. Nine registering bodies, from five continents, make up the Congress. While respecting our various differences, the Congress seeks to promote the health and welfare of cats, encourage the sharing of resources in the interest of cats, and educate people about the global cat fancy.
It was a treat for me to judge my very first FiFe show, along with many of the delegates from around the world. And, I was proud to find that, on the second day of the show, the Best Overall Cat was, SGC Yakimo of Shaggy-Coons, and one of TICA’s current Top 20 Cats!!!
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?
