The Ocicat was created by accident in America in 1964 when a breeder tried to develop an Abyssinian with the coloured points of the Siamese.
Many years later after further experimental breeding in which the American Short-Hair cat was added to the mix, the Ocicat was born
The Ocicat has been recognized as a distinct cat breed by all international cat associations since the late 1980's.
The name 'Ocicat' came about because it was thought to resemble the Ocelot.
