Certified Pedigrees

TICA registration documents only include details of the cat’s parents. Either for your own enjoyment - or to import a TICA-registered ca into another registry - you may need a 3 or 5 generation certified pedigree document. These can be ordered from the Executive Office only by the owner of record as held in TICA’s registration database.

The form can be downloaded from the TICA site here.

The current cost is $25 for a 3 generation pedigree or $50 for 5 generation pedigree.

All registrations are handled centrally by TICA’s Executive Office in Harlingen, Texas, USA. They will accept applications by mail, fax or e-mail. Their address details are:

TICA Executive Office
PO Box 2684
Harlingen, TX 78551
Phone: 001 956 428 8046
Fax: 001 956 428 8047
email: submit work@tica.org

If sending by post, you may wish to use the Royal Mail’s Airsure® service to confirm receipt, as the Executive Office does not issue acknowledgements.

It is not necessary to send paper copies if you have sent the paperwork electronically via email. All email submissions should receive an auto-response message from the EO that confirms that your email has arrived correctly. The message will give details of the likely time to process your application and what to do if you do not receive your paperwork back.

You can also check processing status on the TICA site.

Payment Methods

Payment is easiest from the UK by credit card or PayPal. You are advised not to send credit card details using -email as this is not a secure method. If using a credit card, send the details via airmail or via Fax or call the Executive Office at the number above. You now also need to supply the 3 digit verification number (on the rear of your credit card in the signature strip) whenever paying by credit card.

As an alternative, you can pay via Paypal quoting the address paypal@tica.org. Pay first, then immediately send the scanned form and provide the PayPal transaction reference number. Quoting the cat’s name, TICA registration number and purpose of the payment on the PayPal transaction helps the EO to match payment to the paperwork.
