Ocicat

The Ocicat is affectionate, adaptable, curious, and playful, and possess strong devotion to his human companions. Ocicats tend to bond with only one person and prefer that person’s company to all others, although they are also friendly to others in the household.


The Ocicat is very intelligent. Keep him interested in life by teaching him tricks and providing him with puzzle toys that will reward him with kibble or treats when he learns how to manipulate them.
