Body: Medium to large cat with substantial bone and muscle development, and an athletic appearance. The torso is solid, hard and rather long-bodied with depth and fullness.
Coat: Short, smooth, and satiny, in a spotted pattern with distinctive marking on the head, spine, legs and tail. The Oci's coat comes in many colors, including tawny, chocolate, cinnamon, silver, and blue.
Extra: The Ocicat is the only spotted domestic breed selectively bred to emulate the cats of the wild, with no outcrossing to wild breeds. From Franny Syufy
Originated from interbreeding of Abyssinian, Siamese, and American Shorthair, the Ocicat is a completely domestic cat with the look of the wild. The Ocicat got its name because of its resemblance to the Ocelot, a glorious wild cat from Central and South America.
A cat lover looking for something exotic will love having an Ocicat as a housemate. Ocicats are intelligent, outgoing, and dedicated to their human families. They are adaptable to family life and will fetch, walk on a leash, and respond to your voice commands. Because of their sociable nature, Ocicats are not suited for people who are away long periods of time, but are happy in a household with other pets.
