The health of our Ocicats is very important to us, the Ocicat is a healthy and robust breed and we intend to keep it that way. 

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

We are very proud to be able to state that Zayenah Ocicat Cattery is a Tritrichomonas & Giardia free establishment.


There are also 2 inherited conditions coming from Abyssinians and Siamese called Pyruvate Kinase Deficiency (PK-Def) (Anemia) and Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRA) (blindness).

Our Ocicats have all been tested and are clear of PK-Def and PRA, so your kitten is guaranteed not to inherit these conditions.

While it costs a lot of money for testing, any good ethical breeder should be testing to ensure they are selling healthy, problem free kittens as pets.

About the Ocicat breed
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.

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.

Life with Ocicats....

They are generally easily trained to wander on a harness

Ocicats love to be involved with everything their humans are doing,

Many Ocicats love to play fetch

Ocicats love to snuggle with friends
