US Air, Continental, AirTran, Southwest, Air Canada

See the show hotel information for the hours the
free shuttle runs to and from the airport. No free
transportation is available to or from the showhall.
The hotel is contracted to provide transportation
for our judges. Exhibitors trying to "catch
a ride" with the judges' shuttle can affect
our judges getting to the show on time which can
affect the show schedule for everyone. If you are
flying to the show, we strongly suggest arranging
carpooling with other exhibitors or obtaining a
rental car. Taxi service is also available.
Hours: Check-in is 7:30 AM - 8:30 AM Saturday.

no cat will be allowed to leave the show hall without
the permission of the show management. No cats may
remain in show hall overnight. Smoking is not allowed
in the show hall.
With the exception of cats competing in the Preliminary
New Breed, Advanced New Breed, and New Traits classes,
registration with TICA is not necessary to compete
in the cat's first show. However, to be scored for
TICA titles and regional / International awards,
all cats must be registered by their second show.
Please contact TICA for registration forms and information
(TICA, P. O. Box 2684, Harlingen, TX 78551).
Rules: TICA show rules will be strictly enforced.
By entering, exhibitors agree to abide by the decisions
of the judges and show committee. Official show
rules, registration information & forms may
be obtained from TICA,
P.O. Box 2684, Harlingen, TX 78551 or viewed on

A single cage (22x22x22) is provided for each cat
entered. Two (2) kittens or one (1) cat are permitted
in a single cage. Double cages (22x22x45) are available
upon request for an additional fee of $25. Since
single width "wire" cages are unavailable,
if you are bringing your own cage, even if only
a single width cage, you must purchase a double
cage space. A grooming space is the same size as
a double cage space. Special benching requests will
be honored to the best of our ability. For your
cat's comfort, the top, sides, and bottom of the
cages must be covered. Vending from the benching
area, unless prearranged with the club, is prohibited.
spaces: These measure 22 inches x 22 inches
x 44 inches.
Litter will be available. Please bring your own
litter pans, cat food, and bowls. There will be
people food available in the show hall.
This is a non-vetted show. Cats showing signs
of ear mites, fleas, fungus, or other illness will
be escorted from along with any other cats owned,
housed, or agented by the same exhibitor. All entries
should be immunized against feline rhinotracheitis,
calici virus, and panleukopenia, and should test
negative for feline leukemia and feline AIDS. Any
feline from a house or cattery where there has been
fungus or any infectious or contagious illness within
twenty-one days prior to the opening day of the
show is ineligible for entry. An obviously pregnant
or lactating cat will be disqualified. TICA show
rules require all claws, front and back, be clipped
prior to judging.
All kittens entered for competition must be at least
four (4) and not more than eight (8) calendar months
old on the day of the show. Kittens may be spayed
Pets: Household pets are very welcome at this
show! Declawed Household Pets are OK at TICA shows.
This is due to the number of HHPs that are rescue
cats and may have already been declawed at the time
of rescue. Household pets over 8 months of age MUST
be spayed or neutered. If you are not sure of the
proper class or color of your cat, check out http://www.seregiontica.org/Colors/intro.htm
or send the entry clerk a color photo of your entry.
Photo will be returned at check in.
For Sale: Kittens must be three (3) calendar
months of age. Proof of age must be provided on
request. No kittens or cats may be confined to carriers
during show hours. Any person disregarding these
rules will be asked to leave the showhall.

Ring Clerks will be paid $35 plus a fully marked
catalog and a lunch voucher. Stewards will receive
$10 per ring per day and a lunch voucher. Please
check the summary sheet if you are interested. Do
not deduct clerking fees from your entry. (It really
messes up the bookkeeping.) Currently licensed TICA
clerks will be given preference. Trainees and assistants
are always welcome. Clerks and trainees will be
given preferential benching if we know in advance
that you will be clerking!
Rosettes will be awarded in accordance with TICA
Show Rules. This show is scored for TICA Regional
and International awards.
