PLEASE, no phone calls after 9 PM CT!!

Show Hall: Seguin Event Complex, 950 S. Austin Street, Seguin, TX 78155. The show hall is climate controlled and handicapped accessible. There will be food available at the show hall.

Show Hotel: There is no designated show hotel / no special rates. Below are some motels that accept pets:

LaQuinta Motel 6 Marriot Town Place
1501 Hwy 46 North 1826 I-10 West 2732 Jay Rd.
Seguin, TX 78155 Seguin, TX 78155 Seguin, TX 78155
(830) 372-0567 (830) 372-4440 (830) 379-2400

Whatever hotel you use, please be sure to confine spraying males (and females!) & clean up after yourself and your cats so we will be welcome here again.

Please make every effort to 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 available 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.

New Exhibitors: If you are new to cat shows or showing in TICA, the following links will provide you with some great information. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact the Entry Clerk.

Entries: The Club is using the TICA Online Entry System (TOES) for its show. After completing and submitting the Summary Sheet, you should go to your account in TOES to enter your cats. You MUST complete the Summary Sheet.

Show Hours: The Club will be in the show hall Friday from noon until 5:00 PM. Exhibitors wishing to set up early should come during those times. Check-in will be from 7:30 AM to 8:30 AM Saturday and Sunday. Judging will begin at 9:00 AM on Saturday and Sunday. Advertised show hours will be 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM Saturday and Sunday. Please plan to remain in the show hall during advertised show hours. Cats cannot remain in the show hall overnight.

Show Rules: TICA show rules will be strictly enforced. By entering, exhibitors agree to abide by the decisions of the judges and show committee. Official show rules, registration information and forms may be obtained from TICA, P.O. Box 2684, Harlingen, TX 78551 or viewed on their website at www.tica.org.

Payment: By entering the show, you agree to pay all fees whether you attend the show or not. Fees are not refundable OR transferable, and must be received no later than the closing date of April 1, 2018 (midnight Central Time). The club reserves the right to require payment in cash or money order. Entries belonging to exhibitors on TICA's Temporary or Permanent Suspension lists will not be accepted. Mission City Cat Club will pursue any debt owed us to the extent of TICA show rules and Texas law.

Payments can be made by check, money order, or PayPal. Checks / money orders should be made payable to Mission City Cat Club and mailed to: C/O Dawn Lott, 1740 Schwab Rd., Marion, TX 78124. Our PayPal account is missioncitycc@aol.com.

A $35 charge will be assessed for any returned checks. On-line entries must be paid within 24 hours from date of entry.

Registration: With the exception of cats competing in the Preliminary New Breed, Advanced New Breed, and New Traits classes, registration with TICA is not necessary to compete in the cat's first show. However, to be scored for TICA titles and Regional / International awards, all cats (other than household pet kittens) must be registered by their second show. Please contact TICA for registration forms and information (TICA, P. O. Box 2684, Harlingen, TX 78551).

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'."

Health: This is a non-vetted show. Any cat showing signs of illness, parasites or fungus will be escorted from the show hall, along with any cats owned, housed or agented by the same exhibitor. All entries should be vaccinated against feline viral rhinotracheitis, calici and distemper (panleukopenia) at least two (2) weeks prior to the show, and should test negative for feline leukemia and FIV ("feline AIDS"). Any feline from a house or cattery where there has been fungus or any infectious or contagious illness within twenty-one (21) days prior to the opening day of the show is ineligible for entry. An obviously pregnant or lactating cat will be disqualified. Be prepared to show proof of rabies vaccination. It is state law. TICA show rules require all claws, front and back, be clipped prior to judging. Declawed cats are eligible for entry.

Grooming spaces: These measure 22 inches x 22 inches x 44 inches.

Benching:Each entry will be assigned a single cage, approx. 24" X 26" X 24". Double cages are 22" X 22" X 44". The two sides, back, and top must be covered. For the comfort of your cat(s), please bring something for the bottom of the cage too! TICA rules allow no more than two kittens or one cat benched in a single cage. NO KITTENS OR CATS MAY BE CONFINED TO CARRIERS, EITHER DISPLAYED OR UNDER CAGES, DURING SHOW HOURS. Any person disregarding these rules will be asked to leave the show.

For Sale: Sales cages will be available to exhibitors. If you are bringing cats or kittens to sell, Mission City Cat Club strongly advises you familiarize yourself with the applicable statutes and takes no responsibility for your failure to do so.

Kittens: All kittens entered for competition must be at least four (4) and less than 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: 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 eight (8) months of age and older MUST be spayed or neutered. If you are not sure of the proper class or color of your cat, please send a color photo to the entry clerk and a description of the hair length on the tail. Measure if necessary. Your picture will be returned at check-in. You will also have an opportunity Saturday morning to have the senior judge make a final determination if the color / pattern are still in question.

Supplies: Cat litter will be available, but please bring your own litter pan and food and water dishes!

Clerks and Stewards: Ring Clerks will be paid $35.00 per day and provided lunch and a fully marked catalog. Stewards will receive $15.00 per ring per day and lunch. Please indicate on the Summary Sheet if you are interested in serving as a Ring Clerk or Steward (or have a child interested in being a Steward). 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.

Awards: Plaques will be awarded in accordance with TICA show rules.

NO SMOKING WILL BE ALLOWED IN THE SHOW HALL OR LOBBY.

NEITHER Mission City Cat Club, The Seguin Convention Center, nor TICA may be held liable for loss, theft, or damage to animals, personal property, exhibitors, or their guests.
