Disclaimer and Warning

Please be aware there are a number of pet sales scam operations. Frequently these companies or individuals will not reveal a physical address or even the names of the individuals other than a website and business name and will request large payments upfront for kittens. It is highly suggested that you do adequate research about the catteries and individuals prior to sending money. TICA strongly recommends that transactions with breeders be undertaken with the same caution and due diligence as one would devote to any important business matter.

Scammers create a sense of urgency with kitten buyers so they can quickly get their cash and then they disappear.

Sketchy payment. The seller asks for wiring of money or payment by gift cards. Be aware that if you choose a non-secure method of payment, it is highly unlikely that you will get your money back.

No phone calls. The seller prefers to handle communication by email and not the phone or in person.

Meet Our Fabulous Felines

As the world's largest genetic registry of pedigreed cats, TICA currently recognizes 71 breeds of cats for championship competition. In addition, the number of breeds can change as new breeds are developed.

The different breeds are eligible to compete in TICA sanctioned shows and for appropriate titles and awards, based on their status. To learn about TICA's Best of Breed winners click here.

To learn more about each breed recognized by TICA, select the breed(s) you're interested in and read their breed profile. It's also good to talk to a breeder at your local show and see an example of the breed(s) you're interested in learning more about before you take one home.

Championship Breeds

Breeds of cats who have been accepted for the championship and are recognized as being eligible to compete in TICA sanctioned shows and eligible for appropriate titles and/or computation of Annual Awards. These cats must be 8 months of age or more and may be male, female, neuter or spay. Pedigreed kittens (under 8 months of age) do not earn titles, but are eligible to compete in TICA sanctioned shows and may earn points towards Annual Awards.
