How To Enter a Show Using the TICA Online Entry System (TOES)
Courtesy of Marty Young

Clubs are starting to use the new TOES system for online entries. It is a wonderful new system that will make entering cat shows much easier for exhibitors AND entry clerks. No more having to fill out an entry form and summary sheet for each show. YOU create your FREE account with your personal information and all the information on your cats and the system stores it. When you want to enter a show, all you have to do is sign in to TOES, go to the show calendar, select the show you want to enter and click "Add New Entry." Simply click on the name of the cat you want to enter and all the information is automatically filled in for you.

Below is a step-by-step walk through to set up your FREE TOES account and how to enter a cat show using TOES. I strongly suggest you create your account now and add any cats you are currently showing.

Thanks to Christian Cherau of the NE region for most of this walk through. I added the part about entering a cat in the database as a separate section.

Again, many thanks to Christian Cherau!!

TOES will remember the cats you have previously entered, making entry into future shows much easier. To edit the information of the cats you have in TOES, simply click "My Cats" along the top and click the big pencil next to the cat whose information you wish to edit. This is especially important when adding registration numbers to kittens so they will appear in future shows!
