Please contact TICA for registration forms and information (TICA, P. O. Box 2684, Harlingen, TX 78551).

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 (2) weeks prior to the show, and should test negative for feline leukemia and FIV ("feline AIDS"). Any feline from a house or cattery where there has been fungus or any infectious or contagious illness within twenty-one (21) 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 entries should also have a current rabies vaccination. Florida law requires any animal over the age of four (4) months to be vaccinated against rabies within the last twelve (12) months (be prepared to show proof).

Household 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 eight (8) months of age and older MUST be spayed or neutered. If you are not sure of the proper division or color of your cat, check out or send the entry clerk a color photo of your entry. Photo will be returned at check in.

A double cage space measures 22” by 44” x 22”, approximately. All cages must be covered on three sides. For the cat’s comfort, we recommend that you provide a rug and a top cover. All cats and kittens in the show hall must have an assigned cage and no cats may be confined to carriers, either displayed or under cages during show hours. Any person disregarding this rule will be required to leave the show hall. If you have an odd number of entries, you must pay for an even number of single benching spaces.

Special benching requests will be honored to the best of our ability. One benching request per exhibitor.
