Email the Executive Office

Please only email one department. If you send the same email to multiple addresses, your work will be delayed and possibly double charged. To avoid these issues, please only send your email to one department. Thank you.


Household Pets

TICA does not promote the breeding of Household Pets nor non-domestic outcrosses used in a breeding program and therefore the use of a cattery name in the prefix position is not allowed.


Pay for your Titles

Pay for your Titles - If your cat received notification of a title, that's great news, but don't stop there! The letter you received is only a courtesy notice (letting you know that your cat is title eligible) - you must pay for the title confirmation through the TICA Executive Office (paypal@tica.org), in order for the title to become official! After you pay for your title, don't forget that you have also earned bragging rights! Announce your cat's new title in the TREND, as a TRENDSETTER! Share your TICA pride with TICA's world!


Membership Dues Change

If you pay before May 1st, you may still pay the old rate. Create an account on our online system, TDS ONLINE (https://online.tica.org ), and then click on JOIN TICA!


To see all rates, view our updated pricelists.

Title Discount Program

This option can only be paid upon receipt of the form and registration of a cat/kitten/alter/HHP/HHP kitten that has never been shown, OR upon receipt of the form and transfer of a cat/kitten/alter/HHP/HHP kitten that has never been shown. It's important to note here that if you use the rule that your cat can be shown pending once in TICA, then you MAY NOT use the Title Discount at Registration Program.


Some of you may have already received letters informing you of titles earned. If you had recently applied for the titles listed on the letter, you may disregard the letter. The letters inform you of the titles your cats have qualified for and the cost of the titles required for you to receive the certificates.


Titles will be processed in batches and letters will be sent out when all the catalogs for one weekend are completed and audited for mechanical errors.
