The International Cat Association Breeds
, better known as The International Cat Association is “the world's largest genetic registry of pedigreed cats".
On June 22, 1979, this association was founded by Georgia Morgan, and a handful of cat enthusiasts. Their dream of building the most progressive, flexible and innovative cat registry in the world came true when TICA was formed.
What Makes TICA Different?TICA truly is an international organization. Their organization has members and clubs in Latin America, North America, Asia, Europe and Africa and continues to grow all around the world.This association currently recognizes fifty-five breeds of cats for championship competition - from the regal Siamese, exotic Bengal and exquisite Persian, to newer breeds including the Savannah, Kurilian Bobtail and Thai.
TICA also is the world's largest registry of household pet cats and kittens. Household pet cats and kittens adopted from shelters or rescued off the street, compete for titles and international and regional awards, just like pedigreed cats.

The breeds recognized for show by the TICA differ somewhat from the CFA breeds. All available cat breed profiles can be seen by clicking on the breed name. I have not yet been able to research some of the Breeds recognized by TICA, but they will all have their own pages as soon as possible.
