Special Events: Teddy Bear Fun Ring - Oscar Night for the BEARS! Bring your favorite bear(s), that's right - bears - not cats - for a fun judging. We will have special awards for the biggest bear, the smallest bear, and bears depicting the show theme of the A-CAT-emy Awards. No bear will be turned away!
All proceeds from this ring will be donated to a needy feline organization. Each entry is $5.00.
We know you have bears, so bring them out to the A-CAT-emy Awards - while you support a great cause!

Show Theme: And the Winner is …There will be special prizes for the best "Oscar Night" decorated cage, and for the best actor or actress look-alike among the exhibitors. Plan on fun as we celebrate the
A-CAT-emy Awards!

Transportation: The Ft. Myers Airport is the closest and most accessible airport. The Ramada Inn has airport shuttle service. An alternate airport is the Tampa International Airport.

Registration: With the exception of Korats, registration with TICA is not necessary to compete in the cat's first show, but is required for the 2nd and subsequent shows and for confirmation of championships and TICA Regional and International awards. Please contact TICA for registration forms and information (TICA, P. O. Box 2684, Harlingen, TX 78551).

Show Rules: TICA Show Rules will be strictly enforced. By entering, all exhibitors agree to abide by the decisions of the judges and show committee. Official show rules may be obtained from TICA for $7.00 [TICA, PO Box 2988, Harlingen, TX 78551].

Benching and Health Rules: All exhibitors must check in at the door prior to benching. This is a non-vetted show. Cats showing signs of earmites, fleas, fungus, or any illness will not be permitted in the show hall. Any cat or kitten from a house or cattery where there has been fungus or any infectious or contagious illness within 21 days prior to the opening date of the show is ineligible for entry and /or exhibition. All entries should be immunized against feline rhinotracheitis, calici virus, and feline enteritis, and should be tested negative for feline leukemia and feline AIDS. Florida State law requires rabies inoculation. All claws (front and back) must be clipped prior to judging.

Kittens and Cats for Sale: Sales cages will be available to exhibitors only at an additional fee of $30.00 each (see summary sheet). Kittens for sale must be at least 3 calendar months old (born on or before 10/31/03). Proof of age (i.e. litter registration) must be presented on request to show committee. Two kittens or one cat are permitted in a single cage. NO KITTENS OR CATS MAY BE CONFINED TO CARRIERS, EITHER DISPLAYED OR UNDER CAGES, DURING SH0W HOURS. Any person disregarding these rules will be asked to leave the show. If you have kittens for sale, please contact the show managers for information about Florida State Law pertaining to kitten sales. Felines del Sol will not be held liable if you do not abide by these laws.

Kittens: All kittens entered for competition must be at least four (4) and not more than eight (8) calendar months old on the day of the show. 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 over 8 months of age MUST be spayed or neutered. HHP's are judged in 10 divisions. If you are unsure of your cat's color and division, please contact the entry clerk for help or send a color photo of your entry. Photo will be returned at check in.

Supplies: Litter will be supplied by the club. Please bring your own litter box, cat food and food dishes. A single cage (approx. 22x22x22) is provided for each entered cat. A limited number of double cages (22x22x44) will be available on a first come, first served basis at an additional fee (see summary sheet). NOTE: you get a double cage automatically when you enter two cats, of course they must share the cage. For your cats comfort, the top, sides and bottoms of cages must be covered.

Clerks/Stewards: Ring Clerks will be paid $35 per day plus a fully marked catalog and a lunch voucher. Stewards will receive $10 per ring per day and a lunch voucher. Please check the summary sheet if you are interested. Do not deduct clerking fees from your entry. (It really messes up the bookkeeping.)

Awards: Rosettes will be awarded in accordance with TICA Show Rules. This show is scored for TICA Regional and International awards. Breed awards will be presented as available. Best of the Best Awards will be presented (Best of the Best Scoring will exclude any congresses). Scores will be based on finals points, with ties to be broken by number of cats defeated.
