About The Ocicat Ocicats look wild with their dramatic spots in many colors, but there is no wild ancestry in them. They have easy-care short fur covering a sturdy, lithe frames. While only spotted Ocicats can be shown, they can also be found in ticked or classic tabby, solid, or colorpointed.

Ocicats are high energy and love to play, but can self-amuse with toys or playing with other pets. Devoted to their families, they are loving without being clingy. They enjoy learning new things, including (perhaps especially) things they shouldn't, like how to open doors and turn on faucets. Some even remove heating registers and disappear down the ductwork, so make sure these are well secured!
Did You Know? Ocicats began as a surprise side effect in 1964 from breeding a Siamese cat to an Abyssinian. The plan was to get a Siamese-style cat with Abyssinian-ticked colorpointing, but instead, the result was a beautiful spotted cat!
