3: The first Ocicat was born in 1964, as a cross of Abyssinian and Siamese cats, in an attempt to create an Abyssinian-point Siamese. Today, Ocicats are an interbreed of Abyssinian, Siamese, and American Shorthair.
6: "Never before was there such an effort to breed an entirely domestic cat which can offer the spotted beauty of the wild cats, while maintaining the lovely, predictable disposition of the domestic cat." -The Cat Fanciers' Association
7: The Ocicat is confident and extroverted.
8: Ocicats are quite intelligent and can be easily trained.
9: Many will fetch, walk on a leash, respond to voice commands and readily adapt to household rules.
10: Ocicats come in 12 different accepted coat colors, from chocolate to silver.
13: The Ocicat has no known inherited health issues, so with a quality diet, they are likely to live a long life. Their strong, muscular body means they are athletic and playful- lots of fun for an active household but affectionate enough for more quiet ones as well.
15: To err is human, to purr is feline. ~Robert Byrne
