What our members Say

  • "Thanks for letting us to be part of this wonderful association". Chantel
  • "I wanted to thank you for all your help and for listing me on the TCA, INC. website in the Breeder Directory.  I have had several emails and phone callse about the kittens.  I have more people on my waiting list that I ever imagined I would and I most likely won't need to advertise locally to sell these kittens." Lora 
  • "I am sure that at least 75% of my kitten sales come from the search engines TCA, INC. is listed on.  Right now I have orders piled up until next summer.  I am so proud of TCA."  Shirley.
  • "I have referred you several times because I like the site sooo much." Jean
  • "Your site really does have great graphics, especially love your whole site.  Your, Traditional Cat pages are awesome." Gary
  • "I thank you so much for doing this site.  I now have what I realize is a Traditional kitten, when I thought that meant what I now know is a Classic!!  I just didn't want one of these new weirdos.  I am so sorry to see this type of distortion!  I have known Siamese ever since the mid 50's, when my cousin was breeding them.  They were so incredibly wonderful, and she GAVE us one to take home. We never recovered from that terrific introduction.  I love these old timers so much!  Why on earth would the CFA go for these distorted sad beasts and call them Siamese????" Gretchen.  
  • "A note to tell you how much I enjoyed this months newsletter (Nov/Dec. 2003).
