UK International and Regional Winners
Each show year (1 May to 30 April), TICA maintains a “league table” (known as the Standings) for all TICA-registered cats, kittens, alters, HHPs and HHP Kittens. Scores are calculated based on how many other cats that cat defeated in each ring that the cat entered during the show year.
At the end of the show year, after the scores are added up and checked, the Top 20 Cats, LH Cats, SH Cats, Kittens, Alters, HHPs and HHP Kittens in each Region are awarded the lifetime title of Regional Winner (RW).
Across TICA as a whole, the Top 25 Cats, LH Cats, SH Cats, Kittens, Alters, HHPs and HHP Kittens are awarded the prestigious lifetime title of International Winner (IW). The UK’s first IWs were awarded at the end of the 2007/2008 show year. For 2008/2009 there were a record nine International Winners from the UK.
2008/2009 also saw the first UK cat earn TICA’s prestigious Lifetime Achievement award - which requires a cat to earn a minimum of one IW and two RWs in more than one show year.
Here are the UK winners for the following show years:
