I sent in a confirmation, why isn't my cat scored?
Titles are different from scoring (different department). If you submit an application for recognition of wins and do not specify that your cat was shown pending or with a wrong registration number the confirmation department will not notify the scoring department

The TICA Standing rules state:

601.1 Unregistered Cats. Unregistered cats may be shown only once in TICA without a registration number. All points and/or wins for titles and/or Annual Awards acquired by an unregistered cat in the second and/or subsequent shows shall be irrevocably lost. The exhibitor is obligated to furnish the registration number to the entry clerk or master clerk and the Executive Office. In order to obtain credit for any points and/or wins received at the first show where the cat, kitten alter or household pet adult was shown as unregistered, the owner must notify the Executive Office in writing requesting the first show to be credited and stating the name, date and location of the show, and the name, breed (if applicable), registration number, and entry number.
My cat is being shown under a different color than what is currently registered.
According to TICA Standing Rule: 901.2 Color Awards.

In order to receive a color award, cats must be registered in the correct color (color in which they were shown) by May 7th.

Return the original registration certificate to the Executive Office, along with a $7.00 correction fee. (Please specify the correct color)

In TICA, cats are registered genetically and shown phenotypically. Therefore, if your cat is shown looks different from its genetic color, you must inform the Executive Office to receive a color award.
The registration number printed in the catalog is incorrect.
Email the Executive Office with the correct registration number. Provide a list of all shows to include the name and date for any needed corrections.
The show results posted on the website are not correct.
These show reports are compiled by volunteer show reporters on the TICA mailing list. These show reports are not an official publication of The International Cat Association. The show results in this archive are compiled from marked catalogs that have not been verified by the TICA Executive Office and as such may not be construed as official results. Official scoring is done in the TICA Executive Office, independently of these reports.
This was my second time I showed my cat without a registration number. According to TICA Standing Rule: 601.1 Unregistered Cats.
Unregistered cats may be shown only once in TICA without a registration number. All points and/or wins for titles and/or Annual Awards acquired by an unregistered cat in the second and/or subsequent shows shall be irrevocably lost. The exhibitor is obligated to furnish the registration number to the entry clerk or master clerk and the Executive Office. In order to obtain credit for any points and/or wins received at the first show where the cat, kitten alter or household pet adult was shown as unregistered, the owner must notify the Executive Office in writing requesting the first show to be credited and stating the name, date and location of the show, and the name, breed (if applicable), registration number, and entry number.
What do I do if I showed my cat pending?
According to TICA Standing Rule: 601.1 Unregistered Cats.

Unregistered cats may be shown only once in TICA without a registration number. All points and/or wins for titles and/or Annual Awards acquired by an unregistered cat in the second and/or subsequent shows shall be irrevocably lost.

What region is my cat being scored in?
According to the following TICA Standing Rules:
601.2.8 Cats will be scored in the region of residence on January First.
601.2.9 Kittens will be scored in the region where they were first shown unless the Executive Office is notified in writing.
601.2.10 If a cat or kitten completed its show career before January 1st, it will be scored in the region where it completed that career.
601.2.11 For purposes of scoring, the transfer date on a Certificate of Registration is the date the transfer is received in the Executive Office. In order for the new owner to be shown on the awards, the transfer must be received in the Executive Office by January 1st; if the cat was shown only after the transfer then the transfer must be received in the Executive Office by May 7th. If the cat was shown only before the transfer then the old owner(s) will be furnished the award. There is no primary owner. Co-owners are equal owners of the cat. We score the cat in the region shown in the catalog. If different regions show up in different catalogs, first we check to make sure that one of the owners is from that region and then we change it. If we are informed at any rime, where the cat resides, we make a note of that. When the regional lists go to the regional directors, they are usually very aware of where the cat should be scored and if the two directors concur, the cat can be changed at that time.
