Welcome to Thor’s Oak Ocicat Classics & Ocicats

Responsible breeders of Ocicat Classics (Aztecs) & Ocicats.

We are Monika & Owen. Breeders of Ocicat Classics (Aztecs in GCCF) & Ocicats. We live in the deepest, darkest, depths of Thurrock, on the edge of the village of Aveley, with our Ocicat Classics (Aztecs) & Ocicats. We carefully selected Thor’s Oak’s Ocicats from lines with no known genetic defects. As a result, we ensured they are as healthy as can be possible. All Thor’s Oak kittens are all born in our bedroom and raised in our home. We socialise all kittens with our other Queens and neuters. This, consequently, ensures that Thor’s Oak Ocicat Classic and Ocicat kittens are all used to normal household activities and noises. Our aim is to improve the genetic diversity of Ocicats and Classics in the UK. Because of this aim, we asked Rosemary Caunter to breed us an (F1) queen. That queen was from her Abyssinian (Manuka) and Thunder. Furthermore, we are starting to work with international breeders, with the aim to import carefully selected healthy cats from abroad. Firstly we imported 2 cats from Russia, a male and also a female as part of this aim. In addition, we have imported a female from Czechia.

Retired Neutered Ocicats

Very occasionally we have to rehome retired Neutered cats. Should someone be searching for an older lady or gentleman as a companion please:-

Aveley is close to the junction of the A13 and M25 (J30/31) just north of the Dartford Crossing. *Note. The pin on the map is in the village of Aveley for reference. Although close by, it is not our exact address. (We will give visitors our address when an appointment is made.)

Thor’s Oak Cattery Name

Local legend states, Thor’s Oak, a tree sacred to the Norse God Thor, stood hereabouts. That legend states Thurrock was named after Thor’s Oaktree. We took our cattery name from that legend. The truth is, Thurrock is on a bend in the River Thames which resembles a ‘Turroc’. Turroc is an Anglo-Saxon word for the bilge of a ship. At Thor’s Oak we normally have kittens available. To be adopted by one, please, Contact Us to arrange an interview with mum.


Always remember: –

Thousands of years ago,
Cats were worshipped as Gods.
Cats remember this.
