Woman quits her job & sails around the world with rescue cat
    By: Julija Televiciute

Liz Clark, 34, a self-proclaimed "she-pirate," has been sailing around the world since 2006 when she quit her job as a bartender in San Diego, California. Clark was given a Cal 40 sailboat on the condition that she would document her adventures around the world. In 2013, "Captain Lizzy" welcomed a 6-month-old kitten that she rescued aboard.

"She has adapted to living surrounded by water," Clark said of her cat companion to Buzzfeed. The cat, named Amelia (also lovingly referred to as Tropicat), enjoys fishing from the boat, walking on the beach and hiking. "She has to go out of a cat comfort zone often," Clark added. "But I think she now understands that I will keep her safe and she will have a lot of fun in the end. She makes Swell [the yacht] feel much more like a home."

So far, Clark has traveled along the western coast of Mexico and Central America, and around the South Pacific.

By: Olga Murashko

TICA Judges: Pamela Barrett, Massimo Picardello, 
Vlada Beninya,  Phillipa Holmes

Once again on December 3 & 4 in 2016 the largest show in the world took place at the Crocus Expo Center in Moscow/Russia. The main sponsor, Royal Canin, once again did a great job in getting together multiple organizations for this spectacular event.  Together with FIFe, WCF, TICA, and local cat organizations, they had around 2000 cats in the show hall. Moscow is one of the biggest cities in the world has a large community of cat lovers, so that the gate was amazing with thousands of visitors attending.

Every organization does its own show under their own regulations, but at the end of the show, a board of judges from each association together make a final decision together and elect the Best Cat In Show.
Royal Canin
Every year since 2002 ROYAL CANIN presents the biggest cat show in Russia - ROYAL CANIN GRAN PRIX. More than 1000 breeders from different feline associations come together to show their best cats and fight for one of the most prestige title among dedicated breeders - THE WINNER of ROYAL CANIN GRAN PRIX. 

We are happy that in 2016 TICA stepped in as well in this big project and first time ever TICA rings. run by TICA Club CRYSTAL, were presented there as well with 12 rings shows judged by Pamela Barrett, Massimo Picardello, Vlada Beninya and Phillipa Holmes . 8000 m2 full of beautiful cats, their owners and cat lovers were very impressive. TICA, CFA, WCF, FIFe, ICU, IFA breeders and exhibitors had chance to present their association on main stage for big Best of Best. After two day show each association has chosen their Best Cat, Best Kitten and Best Alter. So there were 6 cats in each category. 

We are very proud that Best of Best TICA's Cat - beautiful Exotic Shorthair Dar-Liz Bambi bred and owned Zoya Shulga had won Best Cat of ROYAL CANIN GRAN PRIX.
