New Year, New TICA.org

New tica orgIf you've visited tica.org recently you will have noticed some big changes. Over the last year a team of TICA employees, volunteers and consultants have been working tirelessly on analyzing, comparing and troubleshooting tica.org to ensure visitors have the most complete experience when accessing tica.org.

“This is the first upgrade to TICA's website in almost 10 years,” said TICA President Vickie Fisher. “We are excited to now offer visitors a mobile-friendly website with direct access to an integrated show calendar, an optional entry clerking solution and service tickets, among other exciting features.”

The redesigned site includes many new features designed for both members and those new to TICA who are looking to find more information about our fabulous felines. Among them:

  • Mobile friendly design, making it easier to search, read and conduct transactions while on smartphones and tablets.
  • An integrated show calendar that allows clubs to request show dates, complete with approval workflows (in case of conflict within the same region or 500 miles) and show license application. 
  • The option of adding an integrated entry clerking solution. Exhibitors can manage their show cat information and enter cats directly on tica.org. Use of TOES as an entry system is not mandatory for clubs, but is encouraged.
  • Support options. Access to previous support tickets and creation of new support tickets directly on the website.
  • Access to judges’ information, including sorting and filtering. Judges now also have the option to update their own information.
  • Breed of the Week which highlights the personality traits, basic features and care needs of a different TICA breed each week to help those interested in sharing their home with a pedigreed cat find the right breed for them.

TICA is also working on the following features to be added in the coming months:

  • Online payment options using PayPal and most major credit cards.
  • Change in official standings format from PDFs to a system that allows searching and filtering options.
  • Additional online services to replace Logiforms.

TICA would like to thank Vice President Ralph Stadter for taking a leadership role and spending countless hours establishing logic, navigation and trouble shooting post implementation; Jonathan Patterson, TICA's contract webmaster, for designing the look and feel and integration of the entire site; Erwin van den Bunder for the integration and transfer of TOES and the installation of the indispensible Show Calendar feature; Roeann Fulkerson for her professional input from a marketing perspective; Christina Duffey-Carey for working with TICA Breed Committees to create “Breed of the Week” profiles; Cheryl Hogan and Helmi Flick for locating the purr-fect breed profile photos from Helmi’s professional works; and Harley DeVilbiss for reviewing each page for accuracy and necessary tweaks.

TICA redesigned the site with YOU in mind, therefore we’d love to hear from you. We've already gotten some great feedback and the team has been busy addressing each issue. Any feedback or suggestions can be emailed to it@tica.org along with screenshots of any pages being referenced.

Your Guide to Navigating the New Site

TICAs new siteWelcome TICA friends to the home of our new website. The following will explain some of the ideas behind our new design and structure and help guide you to find the content you’re looking for quickly and easily.

Homepage – Our goal is to grab the attention of the occasional visitor with the “focus area” at the top of the screen. This page is geared toward people who just happen to come across our site, so we designed it to give an overview of who we are and how we can help them find just about anything feline related. This page includes sections such as “What is TICA?”, “Find A Kitten”, “Find a Breeder”, “Find a Show” and how “Non-Pedigreed Cats” are also included within TICA. TICA’s homepage also features a different “Breed of the Week” that highlights the personality, traits and basic features and care needs of each breed to help those interested in sharing their home with a pedigreed cat to find the right breed for them.

What Makes TICA Different?

The International Cat Association® (TICA®) is the world's largest genetic registry of pedigreed cats, the largest registry of household pet cats and kittens. TICA was the first and now the world's largest-registry to allow household cats of unknown ancestry to compete for the same titles and awards as pedigreed cats. The responsible breeding of pedigreed cats preserves the distinct characteristics of individual pedigreed breeds and ensures the continuation of predictable physical and behavioral traits for future generations.

The International Cat Association headquartered in Harlingen, Texas, administers the rules for the licensing and management of hundreds of cat shows annually across the globe and in 104 countries. TICA and its members work together to promote the preservation of pedigreed cats and the health and welfare of ALL domestic cats through education, responsible cat ownership and proper care to the owners of millions of cats worldwide. TICA currently recognizes 71 breeds of cats from the ancient Abyssinian to the newer breeds like the Lykoi cat and including wild looking domestic breeds like the Chausie and Bengals.

Wherever you are, you’re in TICA’s World. Fabulous felines, fun, and friendship. ®
