TICA Title Hierarchy & Point System

Kittens that are 4-7 months of age do not earn titles. They are considered adults and can compete for titles at the age of 8 months and up in the Purebred Whole Cats, Purebred Altered Cat (spays and neuters), or Household Pet (non-pedigreed spays & neuters) Classes. Titles are awarded on a point system where all of the points earned by a cat are cumulative and are transferable across all the Championship and Alter categories for any one cat. Your cat retains all points that it earns, until it reaches the requirements for his, or her, next title!
