Ocicats come in various colors: tawny, chocolate, cinnamon, blue, lavender, fawn, ebony silver, cinnamon silver, blue silver, lavender silver, and fawn silver.
Chocolate is the most common color seen in the show ring because judges initially favored it. However, a wide variety of the colors are shown quite successflully.
The categories for showing are kittens (ages four to eight months), opens (adults eight months old or older) striving to get winners’ ribbons to become champions or premiers, champions (whole adult cats that have already received their winners’ ribbons), premiers (neuters or spays that have received their winners’ ribbons.)
The title of Distinguished Merit occurs when a male has sired fifteen grand champions and/or grand premiers. A female earns Distinguished Merit when she produces five offspring that have become grand champions andlor grand premiers.
Not only has Ocicountry Cattery achieved the stature of grand champion, grand premier, and distinguished merit cats, but also it has made history with some firsts in these categories.
