How to adopt one of our adorable Ocicat kittens
We do keep a waiting list for pet and show neuter Ocicat kittens, most of our kittens are reserved prior to being born. 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. Please include as much information as you can in your enquiry, so we can ensure an Ocicat will be a good fit for you family. 
  • 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 preffered via direct deposit, however pay pal or cash is also available. 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
We make all travel arrangements for kittens going interstate or overseas, all the new owners need to do it meet their kitten at the airport. Costs vary depending on location, within Australia $180-$240 is the average cost. 

A new PP20 Airline approved travel crate and soft blanket are included in travel costs. We never use airline hire crates for our precious bubs, only brand new crates, yours to keep that will suit your Oci baby into adult hood.

Travel is booked via an experienced animal transport agency, for the best of care on their journey. 

Our kittens leave at minimum 12-13 weeks old, as required in the code of ethics set out by FASA who we are registered with. Please do not ask us to release a kitten any sooner, along with being a rule we will not break with our governing body - research shows kittens staying with their mothers for at least 12 weeks is to their benefit for health and emotional development.
As we also desex our kittens prior to adoption, we let them recover a little before sending home. 

Raising our kittens
Kittens are born in our bedroom. We are present at every birth, ensuring all goes well. Our Ocicat girls stay with their kittens the entire time they are here, we do not early wean or remove mum from her kittens. She will nurse them beyond them starting on solids, which provides healthy antibodies for the immune system, by watching mum kittens learn how to eat solid foods and use a litter tray, she will also teach them how to play and use a scratching post.
Around 8 weeks of age kittens and mum venture into the main part of the house. This ensure they are well socialised to the usual household sounds. 

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 checks, vaccinations, microchipping and desexing. 

A written copy of their health check is provided, this is an extensive check covering:
  • Bite
  • Eyes
  • Ears
  • Spine & tail
  • Elbow joints
  • Hip joints
  • Patellas
  • General movement and flexibility
  • Heart
  • Lungs & breathing
  • Testicles descended on males
  • Anus/Vulva/Penis check
  • Umbilical area check
  • Overall health condition
All kittens leave:
  • Desexed, with a desexing certificate from our vet (sometimes required for your local council registration)
  • Vaccinated twice with F3 vaccine at 8 and 12 weeks of age
  • Microchipped, including lifetime registration with Central Animal Registry (CAR) 
  • Worm and flea free, wormed with Milbemax broad spectrum wormer
  • Litter trained
  • Written health guarantee - scroll down to view or contact for a PDF file
  • Well socialised
  • 6 weeks free insurance with Pet Plan
  • Pedigree papers registered with the Feline Association of SA Inc, your kitten will have their own unique registration number directly into your name and sent out by the FASA Registrar. 
  • Full sized photos are available on request, or can be downloaded via our online albums, links available on request. 
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.

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 bred from health checked, registered pedigree Ocicats.
The kitten has been vaccinated twice with an F3 vaccine, administered by a qualified veterinarian at 8 & 12 weeks. If the buyer chooses to later vaccinate for FIP or FIV the warranty is void.
The kitten has been treated with a broad spectrum worming product at 8 and 12 weeks of age.  The kitten has had 2 thorough veterinary health checks at 8 & 12 weeks.

We recommend your kitten be examined by your veterinarian within 72 hours of adoption. The adopter must notify the breeder of any claim within 24 hours of a veterinary examination covered under the initial 72 hour period.
In the unlikely event the kitten is 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 a replacement kitten, subject to nearest availability 
- or treatment for the deficiency. All procedures and prices for treatment must be discussed and agreed upon prior to treatment. We reserve the right to request a second opinion at the vet of our choosing. 

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.
