TCA Cat Registration Form

Please fill all the fields that you can so that we can provide a complete registration of your cat or kitten. Your registration certificate will be placed in the mail within 2 weeks. If you make an error in the data entered here, we will correct it in our registration system at no charge, but you will have to pay for any re-issue of certificates to cover the printing, shipping and handling costs.  Cat registration is provided with a minimum donation. 

Enter your information about yourself, your cat, and your cat’s parentage (if known) here. You will be mailed your registration certificate through the US Postal Service, therefore, your current mailing address is required. All communications with respect to this registration is initially done via email, so that is the reason we ask for your email address. If you plan to send photos, email them to    

Please allow for mailing time. We will send you a copy of all the data you have entered here via email. Please review it as soon as you can so you can identify any corrections before we complete your registration. Lack of complete information will increase the processing time. If we have questions, we will first email them to you. It is typically a misspelling or an inability to read what has been written. If there is no useable email or we get no response within a reasonable time, we may opt to call you on the phone. We do not sell your information to anyone.

If you are registering a cat, and you are already a registered breeder with TCA, then you only need to enter your first and your last name and your cattery name under Your Information. If you have changed your address recently or your email, this is a good time to let us know via those fields to ensure you receive the certificates. If the Sire or Dam is registered with TCA, then you only need to add their full name and full registration number. The number has priority. We require that you provide the correct and complete name of the sire and dam, as opposed to their nickname. This should include the cattery names as was provided for during their registration. The proper cattery name/s is/are added automatically as part of our registration process for those breeders who are registered with us.

When you have completed this page, and press the Submit button, you will be automatically sent to a confirmation page that also has a PayPal button that supports the PayPal online electronic payment system.  PayPal is completely secure, and is provided through If you plan to pay for this through other means, then just click on a link to the left where you want to go next, and the PayPal process will be skipped.

If alternate payment plans are being used, then please tell us in the comments section.  If you are using a business PayPal, then include your registration name in the comments section with PayPal, as there are no other direct connections to your name with that manner of payment. If we do not receive your payment within two weeks, and hear nothing from you regarding it, we will treat it as abandoned. Any checks or mail orders must be in US funds. NON-US Check Issues: US banks require a 9 digit routing code. Recently we have received Canadian checks with only 8 digits, and they have been returned for a Cashiers check or Money order.

Any certificates mailed by us and lost in the mail will be replaced within 30 days of receipt at no charge. After that it will be treated the same as a new registration.
