Cats co-owned by members of two different households are eligible for the multi-cat entry discounts only if a scan or Xerox copy of the cat's TICA registration accompanies the cat's entry. The registration must show the names of both co-owners. (If you are entering such a cat online, you must fax, mail, or email a copy of the registration to the entry clerk in order to receive these discounts.)

Yes, you can pay at the door. But it'll cost you $25 extra!
All entries not paid in advance are subject to a $25 late fee

Why? Because collecting entry fees at the door really slows down the check-in process. Also, the club really needs to collect funds up front: most of our expenses must be paid before the show starts.

Payment at the door is at the sole discretion of the Entry Clerk, will be subject to the $25 late fee, and MUST be paid in cash. No exceptions!

In such cases, the club shall refund the total amount if requested by the Exhibitor.

    • The exhibitor must complete an entry form for each kitten or cat for sale and/or on exhibition and have them listed in the printed catalog.

  • If the Exhibitor/Owner refuses to pay the assessed fine for any rule infraction, the Club has the right to turn the exhibitor in to the TICA Executive Office as a bad debt and therefore, the Exhibitor/Owner acknowledges they will not be able to conduct any business with the TICA organization until said payment has been received by the Club.
  • The Exhibitor/Owner also understands that non-compliance with these procedures and rules may ban them from visiting or entering any cats at future Club shows.
