There are twelve tones endorsed for the ocicat breed: brownish, chocolate, cinnamon, blue, lavender, grovel, silver, chocolate silver, cinnamon silver, blue silver, lavender silver, and grovel silver. 

Character and Temperament 

Looks can be misleading. All things considered, the Ocicat isn't wild, yet rather warm and tender. A keen feline, it tends to be educated to perceive its name and travel every which way at your order. It is additionally an extraordinary feline for individuals who own different pets, as it is exceptionally social. The Ocicat can even utilize its nimbleness to tap dance on the table or play different games with toys and protests around the house. 

History and Background 

The first Ocicat was the unforeseen consequence of a reproducing test. In 1964, a feline reproducer named Virginia Daly looked to make a Siamese with Abyssinian shading focuses. To achieve this she mated a Siamese female and an Abyssinian male, which delivered Abyssinian-looking cats. She at that point crossed a half-Abyssinian with a thoroughbred Siamese and accomplished the ideal outcome. In any case, there was one surprising little cat with brilliant spots and copper eyes in the litter. It was subsequently named Tonga, and nicknamed "ocicat" by Daly's girl in light of the comparative spotted wild feline: the Ocelot. 

Daly acknowledged she had accidentally delivered another variety. What's more, however Tonga was fixed and sold as a pet, further breedings of his folks would later give the base to a rearing project. 

The main Ocicat was displayed in 1965, and by 1966 the Cat Fanciers Association (CFA) perceived the variety. Sadly, the CFA made a blunder and recorded the parent breeds as the American Shorthair and Abyssinian. For a brief timeframe the American Shorthair breed was brought into the Ocicat's bloodline, changing its tone, shape and body structure. 

In spite of its initial fame, the Ocicat didn't arrive at title status until 1987. Be that as it may, it would now be able to be seen at many feline shows across the United States. A couple of Ocicats have even been sent out to different nations, where it is additionally making a lot of progress.
