A TICA LOSS
It is on a sad note we announce the passing of Ms. Arthel
J. Scheuermann. She lost her battle with cancer Monday,
Feb 18, 2013. Arthel, along with her lifetime friend, Larry
Paul and Georgia Morgan was part of the threesome who are
responsible for the creation and development of TICA.
Arthel was a TICA Judge and she served as the South Central
Regional Director from 1979 - 1987. She was a longtime resident
and a successful attorney in New Orleans, LA. Arthel, at
72 years of age was preceded in death by her husband who
passed away last May. Arthel was strong yet gentle, a beautiful
and graceful lady. TICA has lost a true treasure and a founding
member. Rest In Peace Arthel.

Jay Bangle: Mid Pacific Regional Director
Jay lives in California, USA. The Mid Pacific Region
has approximately 255 members and about 7 clubs. They have
approximately a half dozen Junior Exhibitors. Most of the
shows put on a raffle to help with the expenses. And most
of them donate $1 per entry to the Regional to help defray
costs. Majority of the Regional awards are supported with
"As far as my interests or hobbies," Jay says, "Food!
I *love* food." Jay is married to Sean Corfield. Her children
are her cats.
Christian Burger: NW Junior Exhibitor
One year ago, Christian Burger (Lynden, WA) attended
a TICA Cat Show in Enumclaw with his Aunt Hope who was a
volunteer with a cat rescue group. This was Christian's
first cat show and he loved it. He was given the job of
grooming the cats and putting them in the show ring and
bringing them back to the benching area. Christian's enthusiasm
for the cats was immediate and he quickly became more involved
with TICA through the Junior Exhibitor Program.
TICA and the cats have become this 7th grader from Lynden
Christian Middle School's passion. He has been volunteering
with Community Cat Coalition for one year. He shows the
cats at the TICA cat shows and grooms them. He is currently
showing his cat DQ (Drama Queen) a 4 year old Brown Mackerel
Tabby in the Household Pet Category.
Christian hopes to advance within the JE program and
learn all he can about cat care and animal rescue. He wants
to take this learning knowledge into the future and perhaps
will be a TICA judge himself one day.
He loves showing the Household Pet Cats because they
always have a story to tell. He likes to hear what the judges
say about the individual cats and says he learns something
every time he goes to a ring.
Christian's other interests are Chess and video games,
but those come second to his love of animals, especially
He also volunteers to help his Aunt Hope do feral cat
TNR (trap-neuter-return). Christian has been working to
help locate a cat which was lost in an accident at the Ferndale
Show this year. He comes out and helps clean and reset the
traps. As an official Community Cat Coalition volunteer
he is going to be taking some of the classes which are offered
in trapping, barn relocation, and socialization.
