The International Cat Association, commonly known as TICA, is the world's largest genetic cat registry. Originally a North American organization, it now has a worldwide presence. The organization has a genetic registry for pedigreed and household pet cats and is one of the world's largest sanctioning bodies for cat shows.
TICA's activities include:
- encouraging its members to be owners and breeders of cats who work together to promote the preservation of pedigreed cats and the health and welfare of domestic cats.
- maintaining a certified pedigree registry.
- providing cat shows which promote both pedigreed and non-pedigreed cats.
- promoting friendly relations between breeders in the USA and other countries.
- setting up a foundation to encourage research on feline health issues and to provide lists of resource materials on health issues to its members.
