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.

ramonamarekAward-winning author, Ramona D. Marek, MS Ed. is a life-long cat lover who grew up writing fantasy stories about animals. More recently, her work about the mystery, myths and misunderstanding of cats and other animals, has been published in many outlets including Animal Wellness, Catnip (Tufts), Cat Talk, CatWatch and DogWatch (Cornell), CAT FANCY, and pet retail trade Pet Product News International.

Ramona grew up with dogs as pets and while in high school, along with her siblings, devised a supreme master plan to add a cat to their family. Today she is the owner of a 12 year-old Siberian named Tsarevich Ivan and nine year-old Natasha Fatale.

TICA recently talked with Ramona about her cats and how her love for animals inspired her to become an award-winning author. Here’s what she had to say…

As Time magazine said in recent story, "It seems that it's no longer just a dog's world at the Westminster Dog Show."

For the first time in the history of the 141-year Westminster Dog Show, cats shared space with dogs on New York City’s Piers 92 & 94 as they took part in this year’s AKC Meet the Breeds, an informational companion event to Westminster showcasing various dog and cat breeds. Participation in this year’s Meet the Breeds marked the return of TICA cats after a three-year hiatus from the event.

“We have heard people’s demands for the cats. And they returned,” said Brandi Hunter, a spokeswoman for the American Kennel Club.

During Meet The Breeds more, than 15,000 spectators pet and played with 39 different TICA cat breeds and household pets while mingling with enthusiasts to learn more about the history and distinct characteristics of each breed.
