SHOW HOTEL

We have arranged a block of rooms at the super convenient La Quinta Inn & Suites in Deer Park – hotel is only 2.6 miles away!  Use the group name “Cat Show” to get the reduced rate of $95.99 per night.

Please be sure to confine spraying males (and females!) and clean up after yourself and your cats so we will be welcome here. CATS MUST BE CONFINED WHEN UNATTENDED IN ROOM.   

Please 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 provided 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.

SHOW RULES

TICA show rules will be strictly enforced. Any person entering a cat or kitten in a TICA sponsored show shall agree to abide by and uphold the Rules of this Association. TICA Show Rules, registration information and forms may be requested from TICA, P.O. Box 2684, Harlingen, TX 78551 or 956-428-8046 or downloaded from TICA’s website, http://tica.org/members/publications/shw_rules.pdf.

Preliminary New Breed, Advanced New Breeds and New Traits: Per TICA Show Rule 203.19, “ALL Preliminary New Breeds (PNB), Advanced New Breeds (ANB) and New Traits (NT) must have a TICA registration number prior to entry in any TICA show. No Preliminary New Breed, Advanced New Breed or New Trait may enter a show with a “registration pending”.

Kittens:  All kittens entered for competition must be between four (4) and 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:  We love having Household Pets (HHPs) enter our show.  However, they must conform to all the same health standards and age requirements as other entries.  Household Pet Kittens (at least 4 months old, but not yet 8 months old) can be either altered (neutered or spayed) or unaltered.  All Household Pets 8 months of age and older MUST be neutered or spayed.  There is no rule against Household Pets being declawed.  If you’re not sure the color of your cat or in which class it should be entered, refer to the New Exhibitor section above.  There’s a lot of good information you can access.  If you’re still not sure, please contact the entry clerk.  She may ask for a picture of your cat to help clarify how your cat should be entered.

LITTER / SUPPLIES

Cat litter will be provided, but please bring your own litter pan, food and water dishes.

BENCHING

This is a “Bring Your Own Cage” show.  Each cat will be allotted a 45" space to bench in. The club is not providing cages or tents. Amazon, Walmart, Target, and Sturdi all have wonderful options if you need to purchase one. Per TICA Show Rule 26.1.2,  “No more than two kittens or one cat may be benched in a single cage, whether entered for competition, exhibition or for sale.”  The entry clerk will attempt to honor any benching requests. The two sides, back, and top of the cage must be covered. For the comfort of your cat(s), please bring something for the bottom of the cage too!

CLERKS / STEWARDS

Clerks will be paid $25 per session, plus a fully marked catalog and lunch. Stewards will receive $10 per ring per session and lunch. Please indicate in the TOES Comments section if you are interested. 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.

AIRPORT

William P. Hobby Airport (HOU) is the closest airport and is about 15.9 miles (28 minutes, depending upon traffic) from Deer Park, TX. HOU is serviced by the following airlines:  American, Delta, Southwest and JetBlue.  Bush Intercontinental (IAH) is 29.6 miles (34 minutes) from the show hall.  The club does not provide pick up service from any of the airports, however, UBER does accept scheduled trips in the Houston area and many airport-area hotels offer free shuttle service.

Felines, Football & Fun - 2017 Show Testimonials

It was a great show and I bet the next show will be even better with what they learned from their very first show. Had a great raffle for each session and the BBQ lunch were outstanding. If you miss this show enter early as it closed out early this year. You will not be disappointed.
All the painted faces were wonderful. The children were happy, happy, happy!
You guys have ROCKED it ALREADY ! WOW! :D
It looks so beautifully organized! Congrats to all and have a great show!
It was a wonderful show. We all had a great time. I know MANY cats will benefit from the donations the club will be making.
Thank you so much, that was an awesome show!
Fantastic Show!
An incredible show for sure!! This new club really went above and beyond anything I have seen in quite awhile. A huge congratulations to all the members and friends of Feline PAW Foundation!! I am so proud of this new club and all they have achieved. I look forward to all they have planned in the future!! Great, Great Job!!!!
Awe, shucks, guys! All I can say, is that it was Rick and my pleasure to help out with the set up and tear down. We are both behind the scenes kind of people, and love helping where there is a need. We have met so many amazing people, including all of you ( Michelle Louise Piatt and her husband and kids, Michelle Richards and Todd Richards, Paul Harrison, Jennifer Simper and Marlon), but getting to meet Teresa Simons Redding and her husband Rick, and Dharma, of course,talking to Helmi Flick and Ken, ( and getting to sit in on a photo session), and just so many people that are so kind and caring, and all coming together for a common bond. We loved being there and helping where we could, whether with the setting up and tearing down, stuffing bags, carrying kitties to the ring, etc, it was a great experience. If there is anything that we can ever do to help, just let us know. Can't wait to see what next year's show brings! Love to all of you.
I am still gobsmacked (as the Brits say)... Kris Willison said it well .. something to the effect that this show was like a World Cat Congress, it was so well thought out and organized! The vibe was amazing, I heard others say it was like the cat shows of ten years ago. Filled with all things "cat", affection for each other. I can't even write all the wonderful things. To sum it up, if Heaven had cat shows, they would be like this one. Period

We are a nonprofit 501(c)(3) club that aims to raise awareness and research funds for feline organizations such as WINN Foundation, UC Davis, The Paw Project, Bria Fund and local no-kill shelters.
