Welcome to the South Central Region's Website! This site belongs to the members of the South Central Region and I am open to any and all ideas as to what YOU would like to see here. I would really like this to be our region's home base where you can come and find anything you might need. So, look around and see what you think . . . and let us know!

Health, Genetics and Testing

Because TICA is "the world's largest genetic registry of pedigreed cats," I think it's very important for us, as responsible breeders, to have access to what tests are available, what different breeds should be testing for and what facilities perform the various tests. I am pulling together different resources and will add them to this area as they are identified. If you know of different sites that would be useful and/or educational, please send them to me so I can continue to build this list. -- Wendy Klamm

We in the South Central Region of TICA are committed:

  • To encourage its members to be caring, responsible owners and breeders of cats. People who work together to promote the preservation of pedigreed cats and the health and welfare of all domestic cats.

  • To provide sanctioned cat shows which promote both pedigreed and non-pedigreed cats in a professional manner and which are both enjoyable and educational for exhibitors, judges and the general public.

  • To encourage our members to take an active role in the community to foster responsible spay/neuter awareness through public education, to become active in voluntary service at local animal shelters or outreach programs for schools and/or senior or disabled citizens, and to become involved in citizen advisory groups to foster responsible legislation regarding the health and welfare of cats.

  • To promote friendly relations between breeders in this region and other areas around the world.

  • To disseminate information to breeders, owners, exhibitors, and the general public concerning breeding, exhibition, improvement of breeds, the care and welfare of all cats.
