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.
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|
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.
