What is the Mid-Pacific Region?
The Mid-Pacific Region stretches from Oregon and Northern California into Nevada and Utah. This vast region encompasses mountains, desert, coastland, and most varieties of felines - and their fanciers - in between.
In the MP we offer to our chosen hobby of showing, breeding, and loving cats, a creativity and camaraderie very much inspired by our surrounding natural beauty and vibrant, progressive cities.
The Mid-Pacific Region is in the forefront of contributing to TICA's body of knowledge and understanding of genetics and feline husbandry. While valuing the refinement and appreciation of long established breeds, the development of new and outstanding breeds of cats is also respected.
Our TICA-MP Cat clubs offer a slate of eagerly awaited shows each season. These shows bring together the many diverse TICA members who call our region home, as well as attracting participants from throughout this international organization.
We're proud to offer a wealth of riches to the cat fancier, and we're proud to be active contributors to the culture and excitement of The International Cat Association.
