TICA - RECOGNIZED CAT BREEDS
TICA
Meet Our Fabulous Felines

As the world's largest genetic registry of pedigreed cats, TICA currently recognizes fifty-five breeds of cats for championship competition. In addition, the number of breeds can change as new breeds are developed. Check out our QR Codes, print them and share them at your next show!

The different breeds are eligible to compete in TICA sanctioned shows and for appropriate titles and awards, based on their status. To learn about TICA's Best of Breed winners for the past years select the show season you would like to know about: 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008.

TICA


CHAMPIONSHIP BREEDS: Breeds of cats who have been accepted for championship and are recognized as being eligible to compete in TICA sanctioned shows and eligible for appropriate titles and/or computation of Annual Awards. These cats must be 8 months of age or more and may be male, female, neuter or spay. Pedigreed kittens (under 8 months of age) do not earn titles, but are eligible to compete in TICA sanctioned shows and may earn points towards Annual Awards.

NON-CHAMPIONSHIP BREEDS: This class consists of Household Pets and Household Pet Kittens. Household pets earn titles comparable to Championship cats and are eligible to compete in TICA sanctioned shows and may earn points towards Annual Awards. Household pet kittens do not earn titles, but are eligible to compete in TICA sanctioned shows and may earn points towards Annual Awards.

ADVANCED NEW BREEDS: The second level of the Championship Advancement Class Program. These breeds are eligible to be shown in TICA sanctioned shows but do not earn titles or points towards Annual Awards and must follow specific rules to be eligible for championship status.

PRELIMINARY NEW BREEDS: The beginning level of the Championship Advancement Class Program. These breeds are eligible to be shown in TICA sanctioned shows but do not earn titles or points towards Annual Awards and must follow specific rules to be eligible for the next step in achieving championship status.
