Quick Bio:
-purebred

Gotcha Date:
November 12th 2012

Birthday:
May 27th 2011

Coloration:
Chocolate

Likes:
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?

Pet-Peeves:
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 grain free Fancy Feast and grain free dry food like she is starving. Any kitty treats, sliced turkey.

Skills:
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

Dwells:
indoors

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!

Bio:
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!

Just wanted to let all of our furiends know that it is the gotcha day for Tiger Lilly,

Thank You all!

Saphira and I both like to open the door to the linen closet and sneak inside to play. Yesterday mewomy and daddy heard me having a lot of fun in there, and since daddy thought it sounded like too much fun, he came over to check it out. DRAT! He caught me red pawed, with two shredded and now empty bags of kitty treats (my favorites!). I gave him my cute innocent look and so avoided any punishment, but later he put the few surviving bags of treats into a drawer nearby. RATS! Now I have to work on adding "opening drawers" to my skill set!

 

It is our furiend Leila's birthday today!

Today is our furiend Leila's birthday. She is a cute playful Ocicat girl, just like me. We would love it if some of our furiends would send her a birthday prezzie.

Thanks, Viola and her pawrents
