TICA Deadline to Claim Titles is June 30

As of May 1, 2023, TICA has returned to our standard rules regarding regular and isolated areas. The exception is those areas that were under the isolated status rules pre-covid (as noted in TICA Standing Rules paragraph 1012.3.1). Those areas continue to remain under isolated status.

There are many changes, but of note, exhibitors will need to claim their titles at the "isolated area - reduced points" by June 30, 2023.

You can see the titles your cats have earned from your TFMS account and then submit and pay. Please keep in mind that you may have to wait for a show to be scored to see the titles. You will also receive emails as your cat achieves titles to remind you to claim them. Title requirements will return to regular scoring for those who have not claimed their titles by June 30, 2023.

Clubs should note changes to the rules related to judges, licensing, and notification of shows and prior approvals to host alternative format shows.

Be prepared! Read details on all the changes in show rules that have occurred since TICA came out of Isolated Status for both exhibitors and clubs.

TICA Celebrates National Women's Day by Highlighting TICA Founder Georgia Morgan


On June 22, 1979, the International Cat Association, Inc.™(TICA) was founded by Georgia Morgan and a handful of cat enthusiasts. Their dream of building the most progressive, flexible, and innovative cat registry in the world came true when The International Cat Association (TICA) was formed.


Through many ups and downs, Morgan led a group of cat enthusiasts with her strength, determination, and resilience. “TICA started from very humble beginnings as the spontaneous dream of a few that evolved into reality,” said TICA Founder Georgia Morgan.


Morgan led cat enthusiasts to form TICA by “recognizing the abilities of our contemporaries, accepting change as inevitable, and meeting the daily challenges without hesitation. I can say, and I stand firm on my convictions, that you can accomplish anything if you believe in yourself,” continued Morgan.


Since that day in June 1979, when TICA was declared an international cat association, the growth pattern has consistently increased, based on numerous indicators such as shows, exhibitors, revenue, members, club charters, and registrations.


TICA's first show, "A Midsummer Night's Dream", was held just a month later on July 28, 1979, in Fort Lewis, near Tacoma, Washington. The first international region confirmed outside of North American was Japan. A little over eight months after TICA formed, the first international show was hosted by the "All Japan Club", on March 2, 1980, in Nagoya, Japan. Since then, TICA has grown to have members in all 50 states of the United States, as well as Europe, Africa, Latin America, and Asia.

TICA Donates $10,000 to Aid Ukraine Pets and Owners Impacted by the War

TICA’s Board of Directors passed a special ballot on March 8, 2022, to donate $7,500 USD to the Polish TICA Club, Klub Kota, to be used for purchase of food and supplies for pets and their owners affected by the war in Ukraine. TICA’s corporate affiliates contributed additional funds to allow a total of $10,000 USD for the first donation.

TICA’s Klub Kota has been working since the onset of the war and as of March 9, 2022, two van loads of supplies have been dispatched with more donations on the way.

Those wishing to join TICA in helping with Ukraine efforts can send donations via electronic transfers only bank or PayPal to:

PayPal Donations: info@klubkota.pl
or donations to the club’s bank account: PL78249000050000450051502482

Please, clearly mark all bank and /or PayPal transfers with words "HELP FOR UKRAINIAN CATS".

The International Cat Association condemns the aggressive actions of the Russian government against Ukraine. Our hearts go out to everyone negatively impacted by this crisis. We are deeply concerned for the welfare of our Ukrainian friends and family who are the victims of acts of violence.  With members in each of the affected areas and throughout the world, our hearts and prayers are with all who have suffered.

Animals are forgotten victims of war. They do not know war or conflict, and as many people have been displaced and forced to flee to safety with their cats, there is a need for shelter and emergency services.

The TICA community is coming together to offer aid and support to those in need. Please join TICA in helping with aid to Ukraine pets and owners by donating to the Polish TICA club, Klub Kota.

Additional TICA clubs accepting donations for relief aid to Ukraine families and their pets displaced by the war in Ukraine include:

TICA Europe West Club Felinology
PayPal donations can be made via Friends and Family to: jezebel@jezebel.plus.com
Or donations to Felinology’s JustGiving crowdfunding page

At the 2022 Winter Board meeting, the Board passed an amendment to Standing Rule 103.3.1 to unify membership dues across the association. With the necessary programming completed in TFMS, the following rates will take effect with the new year beginning May 1, 2022.

Our hearts go out to the Ukrainian people. Please keep our Ukrainian friends, family, and their felines in your thoughts and prayers.
