Disclaimer

This is not intended to be an all-inclusive list of every Ocicat cattery in existence, but rather a guide and an example of what it is possible to find through pedigree research.

To the best of our knowledge the catteries that don't have CLOSED as Status, are currently active breeders. A cattery or breeder not listed on this site does not necessarily mean they are not active.

Ocicat @ PawPeds in no way recommends, guarantees or warrantees the health, temperament, winning potential, fertility, type, etc. of the cats and kittens of the catteries listed here. Pedigree information is provided by the breeders, accuracy is not guaranteed.

We cannot accept responsibility for transactions conducted as a result of contact through this list. The breeders and the individuals and organizations they deal with bear all responsibility for such interactions and any and all consequences.

We strongly advise you to always check recent references on breeders you wish to obtain a cat from. People change, those that were ethical and responsible breeders in the past, may no longer meet these standards today. It is impossible for us to check and recheck references on each breeder listed, so it may be that some that are listed are most certainly not the ones that we would recommend you to buy a kitten.

Ocicat @ Pawpeds has the right to refuse or remove a cattery from this listing without any further notification.

Ocicat

Ocicat standard in FIFe (CFA almost the same, see pattern)

General Appearance The Ocicat is a medium to large, well-spotted agouti cat of moderate type. It displays the look of an athletic animal, well muscled and solid, graceful and lithe, yet with a fullness of body and chest. It is alert to its surroundings and shows great vitality.
This powerful athletic, yet graceful, spotted cat is particularly noted for its "wild appearance".
Size Medium to large.
Head Shape The skull is a modified wedge showing a slight curve from the muzzle to the cheeks, with a visible, but gentle rise from the bridge of the nose to the brow.
Muzzle Broad and well defined with a suggestion of squareness and in profile shows good length.
Chin/Jaw Strong with a firm jaw with a proper bite.
Whisker pad The moderate whisker pinch is not to severe.
Ears Shape Alert, moderately large.
When present ear tufts extending vertically from the tips of the ears are a bonus.
Placement Set so as to corner the upper, outside dimensions of the head.
If an imaginary horizontal line is drawn across the brow the ears should be set at 45° angle, i.e. neither too high nor to low.
Eyes Shape Large, almond in shape, and angled slightly upwards towards the ears, with more than the length of an eye between the eyes.
Color All eye colors except blue are allowed.
There is no correspondence between the eye color and the coat color.
Intensive color is preferred.
Neck   The head is carried gracefully on an arched neck.
Body Structure Rather long-bodied, solid, with depth and fullness but never coarse. Substantial bone and muscle development, yet with an athletic appearance.
There should be some depth of chest with ribs slightly sprung.
The back is level to slightly higher on the rear, and the flanks are reasonably level.
Legs   Medium long, of good substance and well muscled, powerful and in good proportion to the body.
  Paws Oval and compact, with size proportion to the legs.
Tail   Fairy long, medium slim with only a slight taper and with a darker tip.
Coat Structure Short, smooth and satiny in texture with a lustrous sheen; tight, close lying and sleek, yet long enough to accommodate the necessary bands of color.
There should be no suggestions of woolliness and length.
Color All colors should be clear and pleasing.
The lightest color is usually found on the face around the eyes, on the chin and lower jaw. The darkest color is found on the tip of the tail.
Contrast is scored separately.
Ticking:
All hairs except the tip of the tail are banded. Within the markings hairs are tipped with a darker color, while hairs in the ground color are tipped with a lighter color.
Markings:
Distinctive markings should be clearly seen from any orientation. Those on the face, legs and tail may be darker than those on the torso. Ground color may be darker on the saddle and lighter on the underside, chin and lower jaw.
Penalties should be given if spotting is faint and blurred, though it must be remembered that pale colors will show less contrast than dark ones.
For darker varieties refer to following tables.
Pattern   The pattern is that of a spotted cat, for the general description of the spotted pattern refer to the General Part. Here only the features of the pattern which are characteristic of this breed are described.

The markings on the head are the same as for spotted cats.
There are broken necklaces on the throat and broken bracelets on the lower legs – the more broken the better.

Rows of round spots run along the spine from the shoulder blades to the tail.

Spots are scattered across the shoulders and hindquarters, extending as far as possible down the legs.

Large well-scattered thumbprint shaped spots appear on the sides of the torso, with a subtle suggestion of a classic tabby pattern – a spot circled by spots in place of the bull's eye.

CFA breed Standard
There is an intricate tabby "M" on the forehead, with markings extending up over the head between the ears and breaking into small spots on the lower neck and shoulders.
Mascara markings are found around the eyes and on cheeks.
Rows of round spots run along the spine from shoulder blades totail.

The tail has horizontal brush strokes down the top, ideally alternating with spots, and a dark tip.
Spots are scattered across the shoulders and hindquarters, extending as far as possible down the legs.
There are broken bracelets on the lower legs and broken necklaces at the throat – the more broken the better.
Large well-scattered, thumbprint-shaped spots appear on the sides of the torso, with a subtle suggestion of a classic tabby pattern – a spot circled by spots in place of the bull’s eye.
The belly is also well spotted.
The eyes are rimmed with the darkest coat color and surrounded by the lightest color.
Penalties should be given for elongated spots following a mackerel pattern.
Remarks  
  • The Ocicat is medium to large in size; it should be noted that females are generally smaller than males.
  • An allowance is made for jowls in mature males.
  • The Ocicat should have surprising weight for its size.
  • The overall structure and quality of this cat should be of greater consideration than merely the size alone.
  • Preference is given to the athletic, powerful and lithe, and objections made to the bulky or coarse.
  • No reds, creams or torbies are allowed. Very rufous cinnamon and fawns may resemble red or cream, but never produce female torbies.
Faults Body
  • Bulky and coarse.
Coat
  • Faint and blurred markings
  • Elongated spots following a mackerel pattern
Disqualification Eyes Blue eyes
Coat
  • White locket or spotting
  • White anywhere other than around the eyes, nostrils, chin and upper throat - except white agouti ground in silver colors.
