Frequently Asked Question - What region is my cat being scored in?
What region is my cat being scored in?
According to the following TICA Standing Rules:
- 601.2.8 Cats will be scored in the region of residence on January First.
- 601.2.9 Kittens will be scored in the region where they were first shown unless the Executive Office is notified in writing.
- 601.2.10 If a cat or kitten completed its show career before January 1st, it will be scored in the region where it completed that career.
- 601.2.11 For purposes of scoring, the transfer date on a Certificate of Registration is the date the transfer is received in the Executive Office. In order for the new owner to be shown on the awards, the transfer must be received in the Executive Office by January 1st; if the cat was shown only after the transfer then the transfer must be received in the Executive Office by May 7th. If the cat was shown only before the transfer then the old owner(s) will be furnished the award. There is no primary owner. Co-owners are equal owners of the cat. We score the cat in the region shown in the catalog. If different regions show up in different catalogs, first we check to make sure that one of the owners is from that region and then we change it. If we are informed at any time, where the cat resides, we make a note of that. When the regional lists go to the regional directors, they are usually very aware of where the cat should be scored and if the two directors concur, the cat can be changed at that time.
