12 Ocicat Colors & Patterns (With Pictures)

The Ocicat was created to resemble an Ocelot. They’re similar to the Bombay and bred to look like a wild cat in a domesticated cat form, complete with a spotted coat. Though they look like a big cat, Ocicats have sociable personalities and dog-like dispositions.

These cats aren’t hard to identify with their brown or gold spots, but they can produce other colors. Here are 12 Ocicat colors and patterns with pictures.
