Ocigatos is located in Northern California. Our goal is to improve, promote, and sustain the Ocicat and the Manx for posterity. Careful planning and extensive knowledge of the breed lines are required. We breed on a very limited basis to the standards established by the Cat Fanciers Association, Inc. Occasionally we make adults and kittens available to approved homes. Contact us for current information. We only work with other established Ocicat and Manx breeders who are known to us. We do export out of the country on occasion to trusted breeders.
Our feline involvement is a HOBBY! This means we dont breed for profit and are not a pet store. Breeding in the manner we do is very expensive and labor intensive. Usually there is a bit of a wait if you want an Ocigatos kitten. Our cats are beloved personal PETS as well as show or breeding cats. We produce very few kittens per year. The average size of an Ocicat and Manx litter is 3-4 kittens just to put things into perspective. We dont have kittens available continuously but we believe our quality is exceptional as evidenced by our success in the show rings and the accolades of our pet owners.
Those few cats or kittens who are not destined for breeding or show are made available to pet homes. We take care to ensure our placements are the right fit for both the cat and the owner. Our cats are spayed and neutered before they leave our home to begin life as a treasured companion. Our commitment to our cats as well as to pet over-population is taken very seriously.
We believe there is value and a place for both pedigreed and non-pedigreed cats in this world. Pedigreed cats provide knowledge of their lineage, health & conformation as well as insight into the temperament you can anticipate. Our kittens have not experienced negative experiences within their lifetime with us so are confidant and trusting companions.
Known for their sweet dispositions, our Ocicats and Manx have enjoyed great success in the show ring earning National, Regional, and Agility wins in the Cat Fanciers Association. Ocicats and Manx are both loving and intelligent lifetime companions who bond closely with their humans. If you cant commit to them for their lifetime then you need to look elsewhere for your pet.
The Ocicat is a rare breed that can be a challenge to obtain. Manx can also be difficult to find. If you email us, we may be able to help you locate a cat or kitten from breeders known to us. Often we are exhibiting our cats at a show on the weekends but will reply as soon as possible. Often, getting on a waiting list might be your only option for an Ocicat or Manx from a reputable breeder.
We believe they are truly worth the wait!
