Rabies vaccination is mandatory in the State of Washington.

TICA Show Rules require all claws (front AND back) be clipped prior to showing. Cats obviously pregnant, or lactating will be disqualified.
TICA Show Rules:
- All claws of each entry shall be clipped prior to benching. Failure to do so may subject entry to disqualification. Cats or kittens obviously pregnant are ineligible for competition.
- A cat not having all physical properties, such as eyes, ears, legs, tail (except as specified in breed standards), are ineligible for entry except in the alter classes or household pet classes.
- Household pets must be registered with TICA and judged by properly licensed judges in order to earn TICA titles and compete for Annual Awards.
- Cats entered in any show shall remain in the same status as entered in all rings even though they have qualified for another status during the show.
- Entries, regardless of class, shall be accepted as received by the entry clerk, and no class shall be discriminated against by limiting the number of entries in that class in any show.
- All kittens must be born between November 24th and March 24th to show on Saturday and November 25th and March 25th to show on Sunday.
