Welcome to the spectacularly spotty world of Zayenah Ocicats.
Australia's most experienced Ocicat breeder for fully health tested Ocicats that optimise the true beauty and temperament of the Ocicat.
We have been continuously involved in the Ocicat breed since 2007. 
With award winning show cats, we endeavor to "perfect perfection" in the Ocicat to ensure our babies have exceptional temperaments, along with the look of a wild cat that will delight our kitten families with their personalities and loving natures. 
Kittens available to approved homes throughout Australia and world wide,
see our kittens page for more details

The health of our Ocicats is very important to us, Tritrichomonas Foetus is a parasite that causes diarrhea,
at Zayenah we have decided to set ourselves apart from other Ocicat breeders
 in Australia so we have tested our Ocicats to ensure they are all negative for this and other parasites.
Our cats are also PRA clear and Pk-Def negative.

Adelaide Animal Expo
We are out at cat shows and other events at least once a month,  
in April we attended the Adelaide Animal Expo where our delightful Ocicats were wonderful ambassadors for the breed. 
Below are some videos of the kittens we took along, 
Zayenah Calypso and Zayenah Stars Collide


Ocicats (pronounced Oss-e-cat), or Oci's were named by the original breeders daughter after the Ocelots they resemble, Oci's are the wild looking cat with NO wild blood. Ocicats are actually 100% domestic - created by accident in the 1960's from an Abyssinian and Siamese mating, later the American Shorthair was brought in for the silver colouring. Ocicats walk like they are stalking in the jungle and have a gorgeous wild looking pattern.

The Ocicat coat pattern is unique, stunning thumb print shaped spots all over the body, forming a bullseye on the sides. As they have very short coats, they are easy care cats requiring little grooming.

Ocicats are large, well muscled cats. Females range in size from 3-5kg, males 6-8kg or larger. They are usually fully grown by 18-24 months.

Ocicats and Ocicat kittens are wonderful around children, we have some young nephews who play with our cats and kittens. The kids smoosh their faces into the Oci's, pick them up, wheel them in a stroller, the Ocicats take it all in stride and are extra gentle with our nephews.
Ocicats get along well with other cats, dogs and other animals. Just don't leave kitty waiting for the first treat as in the photo below, he is meowing about this "unfair" treatment.

 


Life with Ocicats....

Ocicats are clever, and often described as dog like.
They are easily
trained to wander on a harness

Always ready to help with book work
Or fill in crossword puzzles

Oci's often find a favourite toy they love to play fetch with.


Be careful leaving paper towel around


And sometimes the toy box will explode...

We love to cuddle with friends...
Demetri wonders if there's room for one more Ocicat
