Scoring Your Cat

Title Points

All points earned are tracked by the TICA Executive Office in Harlingen, Texas. Points are awarded for placing in Color, Division and for each final awarded. Points are calculated ring-by-ring and tracked from the Judge’s Book, a copy of which is sent to the Executive Office after a show.

Title points start accumulating with a cat's first adult show. Any balance of points from a previous title will be applied toward the next title. If a Championship Cat is altered it can keep the titles and points won as a whole cat or they can choose to start over.

Points are assigned best on color and division awarded in each ring. Points are not earned for breed placements.

Color and division
Color Division Points
Best Best 25
2nd 2nd 20
3rd 3rd 15
4th - 10
5th - 5
Finals

Points are also assigned based on the cat's placement in a final. The scores are different between Allbreed and Specialty rings.

Place Allbreed Points Specialty Points
Best 200 150
2nd 190 140
3rd 180 130
4th 170 120
5th 160 110
6th 150 100
7th 170 90
8th 130 80
9th 120 70
10th 110 60

For example, if a Chocolate Spotted Ocicat were to be awarded Best of Color and Best of Division, he would earn 50 points. First of color and second of division, would be 45 points and so on. If that same Ocicat were awarded Best Allbreed in a final, they would also earn 200 points on top of the 50 points for Color and Division.

For Regional / International Points

For all adult cats, the Top 50 rings are used for computing season scores.  For all kittens, the Top 30 rings are used. 

Points are computed by using the final award points plus cats defeated.  Color and Division points are not used for scoring  Regional / International points. 

Final Award Points are as follows: 

Allbreed Final Points Specialty Final Points
  1  =  200   1  =  150 
  2  =  190   2  =  140
  3  =  180   3  =  130
  4  =  170   4  =  120 
  5  =  160   5  =  110
  6  =  150   6  =  100 
  7  =  140   7  =    90
  8  =  130    8  =    80
  9  =  120   9  =    70
  10  =  110   10  =    60

For a more detailed explanation see the Allbreed matrix table or Speciality matrix table.
