Health:

This is a vetted show. All cats must be seen by one of our vets prior to entry to the show hall. Cats showing signs of illness, parasites or fungal infection will not be permitted to the show hall. All cats should be in date with their annual vaccines. Records must be produced at vetting in. Cats from households where there has been an infectious disease or fungal infection within 21 days of the first day of the show are ineligible for entry. Any cat pregnant or lactating will be disqualified. All claws front and back must be clipped.

 

Household Pets:

If unsure of colour/pattern send a picture with your entry. If entered under the wrong colour we can change this on the day of the show. If your cat has a bushy tail then it should be entered as a longhair! Household pet adults must have been neutered/Altered by 8 months. HHP’s do not need to be registered, however for confirmation of titles they need to be registered by their second show.

New Exhibitors:

Welcome to your first show! We are delighted you have chosen our inaugural show as your first venture into the world of Fabulous Felines, Fun and Friendship! Please indicate on your entry that this is your first show, and if you need any help entering please contact Aimee (aristicatsclub@gmail.com) or post to our Facebook group - www.facebook.com/aristicatsclub.

There will be an introduction to showing in the morning before judging begins for all new exhibitors, please take part as a judge will explain all the ins and outs of a typical TICA show and explain how it is run.

 

Registration:

With the exception of Preliminary New Breeds, Advanced New Breeds and New Traits (all of whom MUST be registered before the show), registration with TICA is not necessary to compete for a cat’s first show, but is required for confirmation of titles and scoring for the TICA regional/international scoring and awards. As noted above, HHP’s do not need to be registered unless you would like to earn points, titles and awards.

 

Supplies:

Please bring your own litter/trays/cat food/water/dishes and bedding. Pen curtains are optional. Waste bins will be provided, please bag all litter before putting it in the bin as a courtesy to us and your fellow exhibitors.

 

Please keep the area around your pen as clean and tidy as you found it out of respect for us, your fellow exhibitors, spectators and the leisure centre.

 

Friendly Reminder:

Please leave your hotel room in the condition you found it, remove ALL waste from litter trays both days so that cleaners do not have to deal with them. Also remove the tray or cover it for daytime whilst you are away.

 

The condition of your hotel room reflects on the entire cat fancy. Please help keep your hotel cat friendly.
