Adopted by Lauren & Terry
3 Year Old, M, Blue Silver Spotted Ocicat
Here is Blue. He is the second of the three Ocicat males we have in foster. Chocolate Ocicat, Lucien, has already gone home. The third brother is a Tawny Spotted Ocicat named Toulouse and we want him to go home with his brother, Blue. These two boys are bonded and need to stay together. Lucien went home to companion a Bengal male and they are already friends. Ocicats generally need the companionship of other cats to be really happy. They are very social animals both with cats and humans.
We took in these kitties from an Ocicat breeder who had age and health problems and needed help as she approached the end of her life. In December, Purebreds took into foster her 4 adult cats. Three were males as mentioned above and the last was a female. These kitties arrived really quite stressed out. The last months of their life in their home had probably not gone well. Lucien was the most mellow of the three which is why he was ready to go home first. Blue and his brother have needed more time to settle in but they are coming along. Blue is still shy but he is unfolding fairly quickly now. He is out in the sun and interested in having his photo taken.
Blue is a big, beautiful cat. Ocicats with their spotted coats are bred to resemble cats in the wild especially the spotted Ocelots. They do not, however, have any wild cat blood in them. They are simply beautiful domestic cats bred from Abyssinian and Siamese and American Shorthairs to resemble wild cats. Blue Silver Spotted Ocicats have spots that are just a little softer black than those of the Ebony Spotted Ocicat.
These kitties tend to be very devoted to their owners. Doglike, they will follow you around. Many are leash trained. These are fairly large cats, muscular, athletic and very playful. They are very active and mischievous. They do not do well alone and need another cat companion or dog to keep them company. This is why Blue will be adopted with his brother. Toulouse is also a very beautiful boy and it is great fun to watch these two boys play together.
The adopter of these two will need to be a confident and patient person willing to let these boys finish growing into their social Ocicat heritage. They are coming out of an unhappy situation and need an understanding adopter who will be delighted to watch them unfold. For the first month with us they both hid most of the time that we were around . Now they are out and interested in the exciting and entertaining things humans do. They are coming right along. Their new family will be so lucky.
Blue’s foster mom is Harriet in Santa Cruz.

NOTE: We prefer families with children bring them to the adoption appointment. Why? This allows interaction between the children and the cat. This helps ensure they will be a good fit for each other. A mismatch between a child and a cat is not in anyone’s best interest!
