**A note about Classic pattern Ocicats**
Many Ocicats carry the recessive gene for classic tabby pattern, the pattern has been around since the breeds creation coming from the use of American Shorthair cats. 
All the usual lovely Ocicat features and purrsonality just in a different coat pattern. 
Being a recessive gene, classics are fairly rare. There is no test for the classic gene, and both parents must carry it, spotted is a dominant pattern, breeders can be surprised when a Classic Ocicat kitten pops up going many generations before seeing one, with some never producing classics at all.
Many breeders keep a classic pattern Ocicat to help produce bigger spots on the spotted kittens, there are only a few associations that accept classic pattern Ocicats for showing. 
Below is a striking chocolate silver classic Ocicat kitten, and 'Noodle' a black silver classic pattern adult, an example of what we may see from our upcoming matings, thanks to Chez Ami Ocicats for the photos. 


How to adopt one of our adorable Ocicat kittens
We do keep a waiting list for pet and show neuter Ocicat kittens. Kittens not retained for our breeding program are offered in order of the waiting list.
  • Contact us to go on our waiting list for our upcoming litters
  • Names are placed on the waiting list in order of receipt, you may choose a colour & sex at that time. You may change that selection until a kitten is reserved for you.
  • Payments accepted via direct deposit, pay pal or cash. Details will be provided by email when required.
  • A non-refundable deposit of $200 is required to secure your kitten once litters are born
  • Receipts are provided for all payments.
  • Balance due by 10-11 weeks of age, giving time for payments to be processed, paperwork completed, and flights for kittens travelling to be booked
  • Photos will be posted weekly, or as time permits so you can watch your baby grow
  • At Zayenah we reserve the right to cancel the sale of a kitten at any time before the kitten leaves us, the deposit accepted for the kitten will then be refunded. 
Travel costs**

Our kittens leave at minimum 12 weeks old, as required in the code of ethics set out by FASA who we are registered with. 

We are present at every birth, our kittens are handled multiple times a day from birth and raised 'under foot', that is, in the house so they are well socialised, used to people coming and going, washing machines, phones, tv's...
Much time is devoted to the kittens and cats, they are brilliant time wasters.
 We also regularly show our Ocicats so they are judged on a national level to ensure we are breeding cats to type. 
Raised to the highest standards, we feed our cats and kittens top quality foods and meats, your kitten will be seen by a feline specialist breeding clinic for health check, vaccinations, microchipping and desexing. 

All kittens leave:
  • De-sexed 
  • Vaccinated 
  • Microchipped and registered with Central Animal Registry (CAR) http://www.car.com.au/
  • Worm and flea free
  • Litter trained
  • Written health guarantee - scroll down to view the guarantee
  • Well socialised
  • 6 weeks free insurance with Pet Plan http://petplan.com.au/index.asp
  • Copy of full sized photographs and videos from birth - 12 weeks
  • Pedigree papers registered with the Feline Association of SA Inc, your kitten will have their own unique registration number
Our kittens leave with a kitten pack stuffed with goodies to help them settle into their new homes, with foods they are familiar with, a small collection of toys & teasers and a blanket that smells like mum and litter mates. Kittens flying interstate receive a smaller selection that will safely fit into their carry box.

Kittens are to be kept indoors to keep them safe. Ocicats are easily trained, and can be taught to walk on a lead so they can enjoy some outside time without any risks to their health. An outdoor enclosure or aviary is another option.

All kittens must leave in an approved carry box, please do not arrive without one. 

We love to hear about our kittens growing up in their new homes, please feel free to email with photos, stories and questions. We understand life can change and ask that we are contacted should the need to re-home arise.


Kitten health guarantee and adoption agreement *

Guarantee of current health.
The breeder guarantees the adopted kitten has been vet checked and is clinically healthy at the time of adoption. Is free from communicable diseases for a period of 72 hours from leaving Zayenah Cattery.
The kitten has been vaccinated twice with an F3 vaccine, administered by a qualified veterinarian. The kitten has been treated with a broad spectrum worming product at 8 and 12 weeks of age.

The adopter must notify the breeder of any claim within 24 hours of a veterinary examination covered under the initial 72 hour period. Should the kitten be diagnosed to have contracted any serious disease or illness, the breeder will offer the following options, at the breeders discretion on condition that the kitten is returned to the breeder within 5 days.
- full refund
- or treatment for the deficiency. All procedures must be discussed and agreed upon prior to treatment
- or a replacement kitten

Kittens are not guaranteed against accidental death or injury at any time after adoption.

The breeder is not responsible for contagious diseases to which the adopted cat/kitten is exposed to during shipping that are not evident during the initial guarantee period.

Guarantee against congenital defects.
The breeder guarantees the adopted kitten against congenital defects for 6 months from the date of adoption.

If within this period a qualified veterinary examination finds the adopted kitten to be medically deficient with an untreatable or life threatening congenital defect, excluding accidents or neglect, a written statement from the said veterinarian must be provided to the breeder to support this.

If the adopted kitten dies within that time as a direct result of a congenital defect, an autopsy report by a qualified veterinarian at the cost of the purchaser, must be proved to the breeder as proof of cause of death and to support any claim under this guarantee.
The adopter must notify any claim to the breeder within 24 hours of such a veterinary examination.

Upon return of the adopted kitten and the relevant veterinarian report to the breeder, or an autopsy report in the case of a deceased kitten, the adopted kitten will be replaced with another kitten of equal value and equal guarantee.  If no replacement kitten is available at the time, the breeder will have 9 months to furnish the adopter with a satisfactory replacement.

The adopted kitten cannot be returned under this guarantee after this guarantee period has expired.

If the adopted cat/kitten is euthanised without the prior knowledge of the breeder, except in the case where a veterinarian considers it the only humane alternative, this guarantee becomes void.

Where a replacement kitten is requested, or where a euthanasia is requested, the adopter agrees to grand full access to all veterinary records to the breeder. Veterinary records include copies of actual visit reports from the veterinarian stating vaccinations, injuries, test results etc. during the period the kitten is owned by the adopter.
If the adopted cat/kitten is diagnosed with a minor imperfection not known at the time of adoption, that requires no treatment and does not interfere with the normal function and purpose of the adopted cat/kitten, then no replacement or refund will be given.

No refund or replacement will be given for any condition or defect caused by accident, neglect or malnutrition.

Conditions of adoption and responsibilities of the adopter.
It is considered common cattery practice and good animal husbandry to isolate any new addition to a multi-cat household for a period of time. The adopted kitten should not be exposed to another cat or kitten that has not been vaccinated or which has had exposure to other cats or kittens that are not currently vaccinated. Exposure of the adopted kitten to diseases or hazards will immediately terminate all health guarantees or options for replacement.

The adopter is responsible for providing immediate veterinary care to the cat/kitten in the event that it shows signs of illness or distress. Failure to do so will render this guarantee null and void.

The adopter will continue to maintain the health of the kitten with vaccination boosters by a qualified veterinarian under current vaccine protocol guidelines. And appropriate worming or parasite control programs as needed.

The adopter will keep the kitten/cat as an indoor pet throughout its life and will not permit the kitten/cat to roam outside unattended. Safe outdoor time by use of a harness & lead, cat proof garden or pet enclosure is permitted. Failure by the adopted to honour this condition will render this guarantee null and void, and the kitten/cat may be reclaimed by the breeder for the protection of the kitten/cat.

The adopter will provide the kitten/cat with an appropriate diet, and water at all times.

If at any time the cat needs to be rehomed, we ask to be notified and will offer assistance in rehoming. There is no refund for rehoming.

*This agreement is available for public viewing, it may therefore be inferred that the purchaser agrees to the conditions of adoption and is bound by them
