I've been wanting to show our two girls but I'm a bit confused by it all really. They are both TICA registered so I have been looking at the TICA show calendar to see what shows are happening and I would like to enter them for the SpoTICAt show in December but at the moment Dan is working overtime on the weekends until after Christmas so we would probably only be able to make the Sunday. How does a 3 day show actually work? Can you just do one day or do you have to do all 3? I will also have my new boy by then so it would be nice to show him too, how would I fill in the online entry forms for three as Luna will be 8 1/2 months so would she have to be entered in the adult section? The other two would be Willow at 7 months old and 4 1/2 months for my boy, would he be too small?

I've done dog shows and poultry shows but they are very different to the cat shows! :lol: The entry forms for the cat shows are baffling me :oops:

Would it be worth registering all my cats with GCCF aswell as TICA so we can do all the GCCF shows too? Which are better?

TICA shows are usually 2 days, sometimes 3 days and sometimes 1 day. You can enter for all days or just one of your choice, it's up to you.

With TICA the cats/kittens are classed as a kitten between 4 - 8 calendar months, so if your kitten was born on 11th June 2011, he would be a kitten from 11th Oct 2011 to 11th Feb 2012. Then he will become an adult (8 months) and will be able to gain titles if good enough.

You can show your cat/kitten with TICA for 1 show without them being registered, but must then register him/her to get any points gained at that show, and before you enter another TICA show.

TICA shows are great for learning, because you will get to sit at the ringside and watch the judge handling your cat, and listen to comments they make about him/her and the breed in general. It is great fun and very addictive!!
If you are unsure about your first show, when entering, ask to be penned next to someone with the same breed, so you can have guidance from them. There is always someone willing to help!

Get entering...you will LOVE it! :D

Thanks Karen, I still don't understand the online entry form :lol: I have no idea what division they would all be, I wanted to enter one brown rosetted girl, one seal lynx rosetted girl and a seal lynx marble boy and working out what they should all be entered as is very confusing. Oh and would I actually be able to enter the boy as the show is only 17 days afer I pick him up, I know the GCCF has a rule on how long you have to own a cat before you can show it, is that the same for the TICA?

As I have 3 cats I wanted to enter would I need 3 pens or could the girls share one even though Willow would be entered as a kitten and Luna as an adult? Do I need to fill in the sections about each cats sire and dam and their titles or is that part optional?

Oh and is anyone else going to this show? We will hopefully be there on Sunday the 11th

Your Brown cat would be Traditional tabby Division
Your lynx spot and marbled would be Pointed Division. If you are unsure of anything, email the entry clerk and tell them it is your first show (I think there is somewhere to click on the form to say it is your first show too!) and ask them if everything is correct. They will make sure it is all ok, and if there are any errors, it is possible to change them on the day of the show (but better done before if poss)

This would be fine. :wink:

You can put up to 3 kittens in 1 pen, or two adults, so I think you would need 2 x Pens.
Yes, you fill in the names of the sire and dam, but only add TICA titles if they have any (NOT GCCF titles). If they don't have any TICA titles then just ignore that bit.

I hope to be there that day and will have cats and a kitten with me, so if you ask to be penned in the same aisle as me, you can watch when I take mine to the rings, and I can tell you when the numbers are up on the pens (time to take your cats to the ring). :D

personally if it is your first show, I would not take so amny cats. TICA shows can be hectic, as you need to take the cats to the rings yourself, andI suggest going just with one or two at the most, and getting the hang of it first. Good luck!

I agree with this statement....Ive been to a few shows and still havent built up the courage for taking more then one cat :lol: - I think GCCF would be alot easier for more then one - but TICA can be quite hectic :lol:

Thanks for all the tips, unfortunately it turns out Dan has to work the whole weekend that week so we wont be able to make the show after all :(. We will be showing in the new year once the Christmas rush is over though :D And I think we will keep it to one cat at a time :P
