Our Retired Ocicat Girls
Here you can meet our Retired Ocicat Girls
After giving birth to a few litters our Queens are neutered so that they can enjoy life in retirement as a pet.
Although we would love to keep them, once neutered the now-neutered cats fall to the bottom of the pack and are often picked on and bullied by the remaining entire cats. When this happens we look for a new family where they can be pets and enjoy their life.
Thickthorn Tikari-Thyme (Tikari)
Tikari was our foundation Queen. A Tawny Ocicat Classic (Aztec). Tikari gave us outstandingly beautiful kittens for 6 years, furthermore, these included three breeding cats. The most noteworthy being Sonnüng. Finally, Tikari was mated to Homer again. She produced five kittens, including Modir. Therefore, at 7 years of age, we decided that Tikari should take a well-earned retirement.
Tikari is a very affectionate cat, yet she hated being shown. She was an excellent mother, in addition, she would help other Queens with their litters. Her new duties consist of being happy and getting lots of fuss.
She was also the Matriarch. She would chastise any cats who decide to squabble.
Tikari is now living life with her forever family as a very happy pet
Champion Thickthorn Sast Sundew (Sæst)
Sæst was our second Queen. First of all, she presented us with Biorn our second Boy from Thickthorn Thunderbolt. In her second litter, she produced an outstanding cinnamon kitten which, was unfortunately for our plans, a boy.
We continued to repeat the mating, in the hope of getting a cinnamon girl, however, the mix of genes required eluded us, for 4 years. Finally, in early spring of 2016, we agreed with Rosemary Caunter to neuter Sæst. Now she is happily retired.
Champion Ameeka Indianna Belle (Indie)
Our beautiful, Champion Ameeka Indiana Belle, affectionately called Indie was our third Queen, A smaller Blue Ocicat Girl. She presented us with a number of very fine kittens, including Myrrha.
Indie was sometimes a little shy, at the same time she is always happy to meet people once she had studied them for a short time. Indie was neutered, with much regret, in Autumn of 2016, aged 5.
Now Indie is happy in retirement with her forever family.
