Real-Life Ocicat Breed History & TemperamentEdit
"The Ocicat is an all-domestic cat which resembles a wild cat but has no wild gene pool. The breed is unusual in that it is spotted like a wild cat but has the temperament of a domestic cat. It is named for its resemblance to the ocelot. The breed was established from Siamese and Abyssinian matings, and later American Shorthairs (silver tabbies) were added to the mix and gave the breed their silver color, bone structure and distinct markings."
"The exotic-looking Ocicat stops people in their tracks and steals their hearts. An impressive muscular spotted cat with the look of the wild, the Ocicat is a man-made domestic cat that adds a touch of the exotic to your home. They are powerful cats that look ready to stalk their prey at any second-their toy mouse, that is! The jungle look with the amenable personality of the domestic, these spotted cats never fail to make an impact with all who meet them.
The Ocicat may look wild but it is absolutely devoted to its family. They are confident cats and are outgoing with visitors, eagerly checking out the chance for a game or a lap to curl up on. They are bright cats and will quickly learn to play fetch-but beware, they love their toys and can be possessive of them playing tug-of war If you try to take them away. They are full of energy and their powerful grace easily lets them leap to high places."
