Ocicats (pronounced Oss-e-cat), or Oci’s were named by the original breeders daughter after the Ocelots they resemble, Oci’s are the wild looking cat with NO wild blood. Ocicats are actually 100% domestic – created by accident in the 1960’s from an Abyssinian and Siamese mating, later the American Shorthair was brought in for the silver colouring. Ocicats walk like they are stalking in the jungle and have a gorgeous wild looking pattern.

The Ocicat coat pattern is unique, stunning thumb print shaped spots all over the body, forming a bullseye on the sides. As they have very short coats, they are easy care cats requiring little grooming.

Ocicats are large, well muscled cats. Females range in size from 3-5kg, males 6-8kg or larger. They are usually fully grown by 18-24 months. 

Ocicats and Ocicat kittens are wonderful around children, we have some young nephews who play with our cats and kittens. The kids smoosh their faces into the Oci’s, pick them up, wheel them in a stroller, the Ocicats take it all in stride and are extra gentle with our nephews.
Ocicats get along well with other cats, dogs and other animals.
