TICA BREEDER’S CODE OF ETHICS

This policy was last modified on March 28, 2023.

I am a member in good standing of The International Cat Association, Inc. (TICA) and have a TICA-registered cattery. I will breed discriminately, and only if I can find appropriate homes for my kittens. I will place kittens only in homes that I believe will provide a life-long commitment of love, appreciation, and responsible care. Any kitten or cat sold as a pet/companion will be sold under the following conditions:  

  1. I will guarantee that the kitten/cat is in good health at the time of sale. 
  1. I will urge the purchaser to have the kitten/cat examined by the purchaser’s own veterinarian within a few days of purchase to confirm its good health. 
  1. I will explain to the purchaser the dangers of an outdoor environment. 
  1. I will provide a written sales agreement that describes all the terms of the sale. I will abide by my own sales agreement. 
  1. I will make every effort to spay/neuter every kitten/cat prior to leaving Breeder. If this should not be possible, I will require that the kitten be spayed or neutered no later than 12 months of age and not be allowed to produce any offspring. I will provide the TICA registration certificate and/or pedigree for the kitten/cat only after I have received written evidence from a licensed veterinarian that the kitten/cat has been altered. 
  1. I will not release a kitten until it has been inoculated at least twice against the following: Panleukopenia, Feline Rhinotracheitis, and Calicivirus. I also may choose to give other vaccinations.  

BDKLV, LLC., agrees to abide by the above Voluntary Code of Ethics set forth by The International Cat Association (TICA).
