That's a tough one, there is not much you can do unless you get in touch with the original owner of the cattery.

This doesn't sound right. Bear in mind that it's been many years since I've registered my cattery or a cat with TICA. But some things to know:

1. The breeder of a cat doesn't change. It doesn't matter how many times the cat is sold, the breeder remains the same. And the breeder is the person TICA falls back on for any/all questions regarding registration.

2. A person may sell their cattery, all the kitties, equipment, whatever. But they can NOT sell their cattery name. They retain all rights of their cattery name even if they stop breeding. (that right may expire but if so it takes years).

Therefore the breeder that sold you the kitten should be able to contact TICA and request a duplicate registration form. Whether or not they still breed or even own any cats is irrelevant. The only way you can get a new form is for the old breeder - the breeder's name listed on the registration form - to contact them. The new breeder has nothing to do with the situation because they didn't breed your kitten.

So it boils down to having the real breeder contacting them. Good luck!

I agree with Marlene the cattery name can not be changed.
When you have your own cattery you still have to use the original cattery name as the first part of the reg name.
