The International Cat Association (TICA) and FELIDAE Natural Cat Foods have partnered to bring the diverse world of cats to one stage as over 50 recognized breeds from TICA will be taking to the cat walk each day during the Parade of Breeds at AKC Meet the Breeds® in New York City on October 20 and 21 at Javits Center.
If you plan on attending Meet the Breeds, make sure to attend TICA’s Parade of Breeds on the main cat stage which Felidae Natural Cat Foods is sponsoring this year. More than 50 recognized breeds including the Korat, Bengal, Thai and Maine Coon will be presented by a TICA judge. You’ll learn about the diversity of type, shape, and personality as explained by an expert panel of distinguished TICA judges.
You’ll learn why the Abyssinian has an iridescent glow to the color of its coat, the history behind the Turkish Vans love of water, and if the Savannah cat “really does have an eye on the back of each ear”. And if you haven’t had the chance to travel the world, you’ll see cats representing felines from around the world including the Russian Federations Siberian, the Dalles Oregon LaPerm Cat, and Thailand’s blue cat, the Korat.

These sturdy cats have no extreme features and blend easily in to the busy modern household
