I need to clarify here, that neither Saphira nor Viola's butt stinks, and they don't really fling litter much. Right after Viola joined us she was kept separated in another bedroom with a conventional flat litter box, and some of her excavations there approached engineering efforts. She was just so fastidious about how it was done, and how deeply she had to dig. They are both just absolute joys, both well behaved and yet active and playful. I think all Ocicat servants say that, but, hey, it's true. laugh out loud kitty

We have two Ocicats (they tend to be kind of large, our big girl is north of eleven pounds), and have had really good luck with the Omega Paw Roll n Clean, it is a covered box, and to clean it you just roll it over onto its top, then upright again. All the "lumps" collect in a drawer, which you just empty and you are done. Takes 30 seconds, much cheaper than the automatic ones, you can find the large one online for about $30. The small is probably too small for any but a small cat.

Hard to tell from the pix, might be. Can you post a few more showing more of the body markings? Uh, Huckleberry, are you confusing the Oci with the Egyptian Mau? The Oci was created in 1964 by a Michigan breeder, Virginia Daly. She crossed an Abyssinian with a Siamese, and one of the second generation outcrosses had spots instead of the expected Aby Point Siamese markings. We are currently the servants to a three year old lavender Ocicat, and she is a total joy. In the past we have been owned by two different Egyptian Maus, and they are also delightful animals. They are thought to be the descended from the original Egyptian temple cats, and are thus a very old breed.
