Registration: With the exception of cats competing in the Preliminary New Breed, Advanced New Breed, and New Traits classes, registration with TICA is not required to compete. However, to be scored for TICA titles and regional/international awards, cats, kittens, alter and household pet adults must be registered. Championship cats, kittens, alters and adult household pets will only be scored once without a registration number.

Health: This is a non-vetted show. Any cat showing signs of illness, parasites or fungus will be escorted from the show hall, along with any cats owned, housed or agented by the same exhibitor. All entries should be vaccinated against feline viral rhinotracheitis, calici and distemper (panleukopenia) at least two weeks prior to the show, and should test negative for feline leukemia and FIV ("feline AIDS"). Georgia law requires any animal over the age of 4 months be vaccinated against rabies within the last 12 months (be prepared to show proof)! . Regulations can be found here:,2086,38902732_0_40630281,00.html. TICA show rules require all claws, front and back, be clipped prior to benching.

No kitten under 3 months of age will be allowed in the show hall (be prepared to show proof of age), and no kittens or cats may be confined to carriers during show hours. Hotlanta Cool Cats strongly advises you familiarize yourself with the applicable statutes, and takes no responsibility for your failure to do so.
