Having partly retired from GCCF shows I decided to have a go at the more exciting format of TICA. I am really enjoying these as I not only get to pose in a lovely big decorated pen all day with the humums sat outside my pen me but I can also show off to an audience while being judged!

I have now retired from TICA but come back a bit more to GCCF. The humums decided TICA was too gruelling for me now I am 11 as it is an awful lot of in and out, but I did end up doing 6 shows in all over 3 "seasons" and all but one of them over two days, which meant there was the added bonus of a few days away in a hotel with only one or two of the others with me! I did OK at the first one, out of 10 rings I finalled in 7 of them and won Best Cat in 2 of them,  one on each day. I also came home with enough points to claim the title of Triple Grand Master.

At the second one I not only finalled in 2 out of the 4 rings on the Saturday but got Best Cat in each of them. I missed one of the Saturday rings, however, due to a small "accident" (NO, I do NOT wish to go into details here!!!) so really I only missed finalling in 1 out of the 3 rings I got to. On the Sunday I finalled in 4 out of the 5 rings, winning Best Cat in 3 of them, and ended the day as a Quadruple Grand Master.

I was really looking forward to my next one and making the top title of Supreme Grand Master but unfortunately had a small accident in the home which resulted in my damaging my tail and so I had to miss a whole year. I returned, however in April 2008 and once again thoroughly enjoyed myself,  finalling in all but 1 of the 10 rings, the one I did not final in, being a judge who decided to final 5 different cats each day so even the cat who won eventual "Best of the best" did not final in that one either. I won 4 of the 9 rings I finalled in, coming 2nd  twice and 3rd three times, I finished the weekend as Overall 2nd Best of the Best! I alos gained my ultimate TICA title of Supreme Grand Master on the Saturday too.

I then did a 1 day affair with just 4 rings but I won all 4 of them so was the unofficial best HHP even though they did not an official award for this. following that I did a 14 ring one where I was awarded the 2nd Best of the best at the end of the weekend and I finished my TICA career with another 14 ring 2 day show where I was the only HHP to final in every single one of the 14 rings and was the top HHP there although again they did not do an official BOTB.
