The International Ragdoll Cat Alliance

(IRCA)


ATTENTION: Mink, Solid, Sepia, & BEW Ragdoll Breeders and Ragdoll Owners!!!


You are cordially invited, encouraged, and very much welcome to bring your exquisite, perfectly marked kitties to the TICA Cat Show hosted by The Project Meow Club in Brentwood, New York on March 5-6, 2022

CLICK the Gold Button Below to take you to the TICA Show Calendar!


Please bring at least one pointed Ragdoll along with your “nontraditional” Ragdolls. There will be a “New Exhibitor Seminar” just before the show begins to explain scoring, etiquette, and rules. The nonprofit organization, International Ragdoll Cat Alliance (IRCA), has invited and sponsored a judge to conduct a Ragdoll Congress for your pointed Ragdolls on Saturday afternoon. We need to have 25 Ragdolls to run this congress (whole cats ages 8 months and up). Crystal engraved trophies will be awarded to those placing first through third. MASSIVE, elegant lead crystal trophies (first, second, and third place) will ALSO be awarded to Ragdolls who achieve BEST NEW TRAITS!


A judge, who also breeds Ragdolls, will provide written evaluations of your kitties, upon request, during the lunch breaks on both days. There will be a breed seminar conducted on the last day of the show. This discussion will be beneficial, as it will familiarize exhibitors with the current Ragdoll Breed Standard. We will also chat about the importance of voting and maintaining Ragdoll Breed Group Membership.


Bring your beautiful babies out in a TSUNAMI of COLORFUL fluff!

Check out the Ragdoll DNA Registry website:


                                                      https://ragdolldnaregistry.com/


The Ragdoll enthusiasts, and breeders, who founded this Registry share a common goal: to preserve the genetic markers of the purebred Ragdoll feline. By doing this, future Ragdoll owners, breeders, and exhibitors can share the same special experience of living with a true Ragdoll. Without the adherence to genetic standards, the Ragdoll may fall victim to the fate that has occurred with may cat breeds. Most notably, the Ragdoll could become overbred for breed "type" to the extent that they will be inbred, or line-bred, and ultimately changed. This breed registry is an official list of purebred Ragdolls whose parents are known. Futhermore, through the establishment of a genetic signature for Ragdolls, breeders may use DNA testing as a tool to ensure that Ragdolls remain a genetically distinct breed that is differentiated from others, as well as be confident in parentage due to DNA verification, and assured that the felines in this program are of optimal genetic health, or at least made aware of latent mutations that are present. Only responsible breeders will be considered for membership where information pertaining to registered Ragdolls’ genetic health is known and accurate pedigrees are guaranteed.
