Where is ——- ———-? Where is TIBCS? First, we can’t sit by and count on any one person or organization for leadership, we all must do our part.Second, you can’t count on TIBCS for anything. They are an empty organization that has been self destructing for quite some time. Mr. ———-, did great things for the Bengal and TIBCS until they just wore him out. He fought battle after battle with the ‘OLD GUARD’ (they hate being called that) at TIBCS and did some great things, but he also has the battle scars to show for his efforts.The only glue that holds TIBCS together is the awesome publication put out by the editor of the Bengal Bulletin. It is the sole reason I am a member, so I can get that publication. There are approximatley 400 members of TIBCS…. TICA has how many????——- cannot be expected to carry all of the Bengals burdens….( besides, he’s busy now working to become a TICA judge) we must step up as well. All of us can be Bengal Ambassadors! !!! I am turning my support to TICA, an organization where members work TOGETHER (not against one another) for the common good of cats, all cats. Maybe the Bengal Breed Committee could appoint a sub committee to delve into this matter. TICA’s members are much greater, and have a much wider vision than TIBCS. Let’s rally behind TICA to promote the Bengal!!!!! After all, more Bengals are registered than any other breed!!! Wednesday, October 3, 2019 11:47 AMPostings and Attitudes are Bad Publicity for CFAHi ——-,The intention of my writing wasn’t to start some heated debate over anger towards TIBCS, and I don’t appreciate me bringing up ——- and TIBCS as a means to digress on the issue with acceptance of the bengal into CFA. But to digress slightly, one of the wonderful and cursed things about organizations is that they are often only as good as the members involved. Considering it is time for elections in TIBCS, it may be time to help put action behind heated words and change the organization from the inside? We as bengal breeders all share that right, so why not do something about it beyond just complaining? But to get things back on track, certainly we as individuals can approach local CFA groups, but I don’t think this would have as dramatic of an impact as organization on a larger scale.
