TICA Simplifies SBT/SBV Litter Registration for Breeders
To simplify the Litter registration process, you can now add new kitten owners during the litter registration process.
TICA has created a step-by-step tutorial to guide Breeders through registering litter kittens and cats to new owners.
Using the owner’s Client ID and last name, breeders can now register kitten owners during litter registration.
