Meet Our Fabulous Felines

As the world's largest genetic registry of pedigreed cats, TICA currently recognizes 71 breeds of cats for championship competition. In addition, the number of breeds can change as new breeds are developed.

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 click here.

To learn more about each breed recognized by TICA, select the breed(s) you're interested in and read their breed profile. It's also good to talk to a breeder at your local show and see an example of the breed(s) you're interested in learning more about before you take one home.

Championship Breeds

Breeds of cats who have been accepted for the 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.
