Ocicat – intelligent and active cat with a wild look
Ocicats are sweet-tempered cats, that look wild but there is nothing wild in their origin. Ocicats are active, intelligent and very sociable cats. They remain playful throughout their lives.
First Ocicats were born in 1960’s in the USA and the breed was introducded in Scandinavia in early 1990’s. Originally Ocicats were born as Siamese-Abyssinian hybrids with best attributes of both breeds.
Ocicats are spotted, medium to large cats, that weigh more than they seem to. They are athletic and elegant, and their coat with spotted pattern feels satiny and close-lying to the body.
As an OCIS member, you are invited to members-only Facebook group. You will receive the full-color magazine, and get a lovely wall calendar filled with our members’ nicest Oci photos!
