Frequently Asked Question - What action will be taken on my complaint?

What action will be taken on my complaint?

Each complaint is reviewed individually, and therefore it is impossible to indicate what the outcome will be until that complaint is reviewed. Generally, TICA does not take any action on disputes between breeders or get involved in any sort of contractual disputes. However, if a written agreement provides that a TICA registration will be provided with a pet cat, generally the breeder is expected to comply with that agreement.
If you have a dispute with a breeder, some breeds have breed-specific organizations which may deal with those types of disputes, for example, MCBFA (the Maine Coon Breeders and Fanciers Association) and TIBS (The International Bengal Society).

  • The initial action taken by the board of the directors is usually either no action, at which point the complaint is closed, or the matter is set for hearing at the next board meeting. However, other action can be taken at the initial review.
  • Please note, TICA does not take "reports" on health issues.
  • Generally, TICA does not take any action on health issues. This is generally more suitable for a civil action.
