The above motel info was acquired on 01/02/2019 and is subject to change.

Whatever hotel you use, please be sure to confine spraying males (and females!) & clean up after yourself and your cats so we will be welcome here again.

Please make every effort to leave your room in the condition it was found, or better. Tipping housekeeping staff doesn't hurt - happy housekeeping staff don't complain to management! Trash bags (& litter) will be available for your convenience. If you have a problem you can't take care of yourself, please let show management know and we will do whatever we can to help. The condition of your room reflects on the entire cat fancy, and it only takes one mishap to lose a hotel (even a whole chain) forever.

Entries: The Club is using the TICA Online Entry System (TOES) for its show. You should go to the TICA home page, log in to your TOES account, then go the show calendar and scroll down to our show to enter your cats. There is no Summary Form.

Show Hours: The Club will be in the show hall Friday from noon until 5:00 PM. Exhibitors wishing to set up early should come between 3:00 PM & 5:00 PM.

Advertised show hours will be 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM Saturday and Sunday. Please plan to remain in the show hall during advertised show hours. Cats cannot remain in the show hall overnight.

Registration: To show a cat in a TICA show, your cat might need to be TICA registered or eligible for registration in TICA. All cats shown in the following classes must be TICA registered to be entered in a show: Preliminary New Breed, Advanced New Breed, and New Traits. All cats shown in the Kitten, Championship, and Alter classes must be TICA registered or eligible for registration. If not registered, proof of registration eligibility is required to enter the show. Contact the entry clerk for more information on how to enter your cat, kitten, or alter without at TICA registration number. Household Pets and Household Pet Kittens do not need to be TICA registered to compete. However, to be scored for TICA titles and regional / International awards, all cats (other than household pet kittens) must be registered by their second show. Please contact TICA for registration forms and information (TICA, P. O. Box 2684, Harlingen, TX 78551).

Health: This is a non-vetted show. Any cat showing signs of illness, parasites or fungus will be escorted from the show hall, along with any cats owned, housed or agented by the same exhibitor. All entries should be vaccinated against feline viral rhinotracheitis, calici and distemper (panleukopenia) at least two (2) weeks prior to the show, and should test negative for feline leukemia and FIV ("feline AIDS"). Any feline from a house or cattery where there has been fungus or any infectious or contagious illness within twenty-one (21) days prior to the opening day of the show is ineligible for entry. An obviously pregnant or lactating cat will be disqualified. Be prepared to show proof of rabies vaccination. It is state law. TICA show rules require all claws, front and back, be clipped prior to judging. Declawed cats are eligible for entry.

Grooming spaces: These measure 22 inches x 22 inches x 44 inches.

Benching:Each entry will be assigned a single cage, approx. 24" X 26" X 24". Double cages are 22" X 22" X 44". The two sides, back, and top must be covered. For the comfort of your cat(s), please bring something for the bottom of the cage too! TICA rules allow no more than two kittens or one cat benched in a single cage. NO KITTENS OR CATS MAY BE CONFINED TO CARRIERS, EITHER DISPLAYED OR UNDER CAGES, DURING SHOW HOURS. Any person disregarding these rules will be asked to leave the show.

For Sale: Sales cages will be available to exhibitors. If you are bringing cats or kittens to sell, Mission City Cat Club strongly advises you familiarize yourself with the applicable statutes and takes no responsibility for your failure to do so.

Kittens: All kittens entered for competition must be at least four (4) and less than eight (8) calendar months old on the day of the show. No kitten under three (3) months of age will be allowed in the show hall (be prepared to show proof of age). Kittens may be spayed or neutered.

Household Pets: Household pets are very welcome at this show! Declawed Household Pets are OK at TICA shows. This is due to the number of HHPs that are rescue cats and may have already been declawed at the time of rescue. Household Pets eight (8) months of age and older MUST be spayed or neutered. If you are not sure of the proper division or color of your cat, check out http://www.seregiontica.org/Colors/intro.htm or send the entry clerk a color photo of your entry. Photo will be returned at check in. If you are not sure if your cat is considered a longhair or shorthair, please send a color photo to the entry clerk and a description of the hair length on the tail. Measure if necessary. Your picture will be returned at check-in. You will also have an opportunity Saturday morning to have the senior judge make a final determination if the color / pattern are still in question.

Supplies: Cat litter will be available, but please bring your own litter pan and food and water dishes!

Clerks and Stewards: Ring Clerks will be paid $35.00 per day and provided lunch and a fully marked catalog. Stewards will receive $15.00 per ring per day and lunch. Please indicate on the Summary Sheet if you are interested in serving as a Ring Clerk or Steward (or have a child interested in being a Steward). Do not deduct clerking fees from your entry. Requests for specific judges will be honored to the extent possible. Currently licensed TICA clerks will be given preference.

Awards: Plaques will be awarded in accordance with TICA show rules.

NO SMOKING WILL BE ALLOWED IN THE SHOW HALL OR LOBBY.

NEITHER Mission City Cat Club, The Seguin Convention Center, nor TICA may be held liable for loss, theft, or damage to animals, personal property, exhibitors, or their guests.
