Congratulations for A Winning Season

May 1 marked the beginning of the 2009-2010 show season which included shows hosted by new clubs in new cities or countries! And of course July begins the time to celebrate your winning cats and kittens at the upcoming regional awards banquets, and the grandest celebration of all at our Annual Awards Banquet in Orlando, Florida! TICA Annual

This year is even more special for TICA, our members and exhibitors because it's our 30th Anniversary. On June 1, TICA ushered in a new decade that will be filled with anticipated worldwide growth, fun and improved member services, the addition of new exciting shows and the acceptance of new breeds that will continue to make our organization the most progressive in the cat fancy!

So as the summer days get hotter, let's take time to remember last show season and all of the fun you had with your felines, and your TICA friends and "family". I'm very proud of all of our members and other exhibitors, and all of the cats and kittens that graced the show halls around the world!

Congratulations to all of you, and your beautiful cats. Remember, TICA is alive because of you. And also remember, wherever you are, you're in TICA's world! And, happy anniversary TICA!
