Hi there, I sent in my papers for one of my Bengals months ago with the fee and never received anything in the mail. Now I am worried maybe the mail got lost?

Not sure what to do next as I have never sent in papers before for my animals but decided to go ahead this time.

Thanks!

Nothing you can really do without contacting TICA.

When I registered Raiden, it took about 3 weeks to get anything back. I believe it takes a little longer these days.

Here is a link to their contact page. You can call them or email them and ask.

https://www.tica.org/en/contact/executive-office Scroll down. There is a link to email regarding registrations. You will receive a TICA registration with your cat's pedigreed name, registration number and the parents and their registration numbers. If you ordered a pedigree, you will get info on the grandparents, etc. I would love to add your kitty to my bengal database when you receive the information. I currently have 106,833 records. I include the registration number of your kitty and parents' names and the F generation.

Thanks, I sent them an email. I just wasn't sure if I was supposed to get something back or if it was an online thing somewhere. if it got lost in the mail, is it possible for breeders to provide another form? Is that something that can be emailed and printed?

You did send them the registration fee, correct? If you sent a check, you can see if it has cleared. They should respond to your email fairly quickly. I don't know how a replacement registration works. Usually, when the breeder registers the litter, that triggers the number of registrations for the breeder to hand out -- one per cat in the litter. If you find that TICA has not received your registration, ask what you need to do.They would have a record of the litter. I am hoping you made a copy of everything you sent them. That way you would have the information to give them from the registration form. These days with phone cameras, you just snap a picture or download a scanning app.

If you are in the US, the mail should get there within a few days. If you are outside the US, it can take up to 3 weeks for first-class mail to reach the US. I'm just trying to give you a time line.

You will definitely get something back from them -- your registration proving your baby is a purebred, registered bengal.

I didn't think to take a copy :( I did send the fee. The breeder lives near me, if I need info again, I would think he would have it?

The breeder would probably not have an extra registration form but may be able to get a replacement from TICA. If you sent them a check, has it cleared your bank? If so, then they received your information. However, since we are nearing Christmas, you may not hear back from them until after the new year. Many offices close between Christmas and New Years. And, you didn't state where you live -- US or outside! Mail can be very slow if it has to cross an ocean.

Its 2019. Everything can be sent in digital format thru email, either using pdf, their online form or jpg screenshots, just like job applications, lol. All pdfs are editable using Adobe reader, and you can even add perfect digital signatures. If you are not familiar with digital tools, you can always learn from youtube channels online.

My breeder applied thru email with all in either pdf or jpg screenshot and I got the TICA certificate within two months.
As for CFA cert, I've applied myself using their pdf form, all done pretty quickly within one month.

We are now in Infocomm Technology era, do embrace it.

Regardless, payment for the service has to be sent in separately. Might as well send it in with the form. They are not going to send you anything until they receive the money. It may be different with breeders who are members of TICA.
