Letter from Vickie


In a couple weeks we'll be celebrating the 2011-2012 International Winners at our Annual Awards Banquet in Columbus Ohio. Although I'll have the chance to hopefully congratulate each and every one of our winners in person, I want to say a "hearty congratulations" to all of our TICA members and exhibitors who may not be able to make this year's event!

If you can't get to this year's show or banquet hosted by the Great Lakes Cat Consortium, then please send your best wishes to your friends and fellow exhibitors from around the world. We won't forget any of you who traveled far and wide to show your kitties, and competed with these winners. Achieving an International win is what each of us strive for, but every cat, kitten, alter, household pet or household pet kitten competing at TICA shows have won in their own right.

Give your kitties a big hug because they're "international winners" in their own right by competing at TICA-sanctioned shows!

Let's celebrate,

Vickie Fisher

TICA President

Cats Take On Downtown Columbus

If you happen to live in the Columbus, Ohio area, don't be surprised by the larger-than-life cats that you'll see on signs around downtown, or on the sides of local buses. The Great Lakes Cat Consortium worked with Helmi and Ken Flick who designed three different ads for TICA's 2012 Annual International Cat Show. The ads are designed to capture the attention of cat lovers and drive them to the show! Thank you Helmi and Ken for showing off TICA cats proudly!

Very good checklist. I have a recommendation for your emergency checklist. I recommend that you add a check for a copy of the Veterinary records. While most of us who exhibit are aware that we need to carry a copy of our Veterinary records and rabies vaccination (whatever our state requires us to carry), if we pass this on to someone who is not a member of TICA they might not know that the Vet record should be part of their emergency kit.
