Household Pet Committee

The primary goal of the household pet committee is to facilitate and advance TICA's outreach to - and ensure the inclusion of - household pets and their owners as equals with pedigreed cats and their owners, both in the show rings, and in levels of respect within the cat fancy. Additionally, our goal is to educate TICA members and the general public that owning a household pet can be as rewarding as owning a pedigreed cat.
