Quick Bio:

Gotcha Date:
November 12th 2012

May 27th 2011


EATING! Playing with fuzzy mice and kitty teasers. Any kind of petting starts her motor in seconds - head scratches, stroking her back, tummy rubs. Playing chase with Saphira at warp speed. ANYTHING that dangles. Did I mention EATING?

None really, now that my kitty sisfur Saphira seems to finally think I am an OK kitty and we play together. I don't even mind trips to have my nails trimmed.

Favorite Toy:
Anything she can chase or jump for. Fuzzy mice to play fetch with, kitty teasers (she does athletic leaps into the air for them). Anything that dangles, especially cords for things like earphones, ping pong balls in the (dry) bath tub

Favorite Nap Spot:
Originally on her bed, usually behind or under the pillows. Now usually on our big heated waterbed, sometimes under the covers nibbling daddy's toes. Any window where she can watch the birdies. A sunlit spot in the living room. Top of any sofa

Favorite Food:
So far, anything! She snarfs down her Soulistic Good Karma Chicken and grain free dry food like she is starving. Any kitty treats, sliced turkey.

Attacking fuzzy toys of all kinds, sometimes drowning them in her water dish, stealing hearts, PURRING! Chasing (and being chased) around the house with her sisfur Saphira (faster than a speeding bullet) catching thrown mousies in midair


Arrival Story:
Our daughters surprised us with our first Ocicat, Saphira, Christmas 2011, and she has been a total joy. We had been idly talking about adopting another one so Saphira could have a playmate, when one of those daughters told us that the breeder where they found Saphira, House of Oci in Riverside, CA, had some more Ocis available. We checked and found that he still had a cute ebony silver kitten and a young adult chocolate spotted female (18 months old) that he described as "the sweetest cat he had ever met". Since he had done such a wonderful job raising Saphira, we trusted Jesse to have raised another wonderful companion animal. We both went down and met Viola, and paid for her on the spot, and we picked her the following weekend. She has settled in well and has relaxed a lot and has become very playful and curious about her new home. It took about a month for Saphira to settle down and accept her new friend, but now they both sleep on our bed at night, hang out together a lot, and chase each other around the house. Sometimes they don't notice when humans get in their way. Our feet sometimes suffer, but these two spotted girls are both absolute joys!

It has been almost six months since Viola joined our family, and she has become a much loved addition along with Saphira. They both share many of the common traits that Oci owners love, their intelligence, playfulness, and devotion to their humans. They are also different from each other in many ways, but those differences are kind of complementary. Saphira is the more restrained, regal, queen of her domain. Still playful, but on her own terms - for example, she loves to play fetch, but only when SHE chooses to. She will sit on the bed and stare at me with that intelligent gaze of hers, always makes me wish I could know what was going on inside that pretty head of hers. Viola's gaze seems more to indicate curiosity and playfulness. Viola, even though chronologically an adult kitty, still behaves like a kitten, the curious and playful young princess. ALWAYS up for a game of fetch, and always tearing around the house at warp speed. She is an absolute little fireball! She is curious about everything! So far I have removed her from the dryer, dishwasher, several closets (repeatedly), and have stopped her from checking out the inside of our refrigerator. When I mentioned to the breeder where both of our girls were acquired how happy we were that Saphira stayed off the kitchen counters, he told me that he had not had time to train Viola this way and that would be my job. Some job! Every time she jumped on the counter, I would give her a firm "NO" and shoo her off. This happened maybe four or five times, and she has never done it since. As I often say, they are both just absolute joys! The only thing more fun than an Ocicat is two of them!

Memorial day and my birthday

May 28th 2017 11:25 am

Just want to remind everycat that this is Memorial Day, a day to remember those who gave their lives defending our freedoms. Purring sadly in their honor.

On a brighter note, yesterday was my sixth birthday, the secatary let it slip by without mentioning it! He has been hissed at!

Thanks to our furiends Raj and furmily and Smiley Casanova and furmily for their prezzies and Manytoes and furmily for the wonderpurr birthday picture, the secatary promises to put it on my profile page as soon as he gets back from some kind of astronomy thingy. I am still hissing unhappily that there are THREE constellations in the sky with dogs, but NONE about kitties! There is one for Leo the Lion of course, but that is not a sweet pussycat!

To all of our wonderful Catster furiends:

We apawlogize for any of your spawcial days we have missed, but our access to Catster has been very sporadic lately. Totally locked out by the login problem for almost a month now, not sure how long our access will last at this point. We just wanted to let all of our furiends know that we lubs and miss you, we hope that Catster's new owners will be able to fix the problems and that we can all get back to our prezzies, pawmails, and groups soon.

Purrs and meows,



9/11 - a sad anniversary

Sadly observing that today is the fifteenth anniversary of the 9/11/2001 terrorist attacks on our country. Remembering the thousands who were murdered that day, as well as the thousands more of our military who died or were injured in the war against terror that followed. May they all rest in peace.
