Rainforest Cattery

Welcome to Ocicat Argentina, Rainforest Cattery. The number one home of Ocicats in Latin America. We at Rainforest Cattery breed Ocicats in a friendly home environment. We make sure our cats get the best care and food and are always in a safe environment. We started to breed cats in 2001 and have experience from breeding Persians and Singapura from before. We were the first one to breed Ocicats in Latin America and are the only one in Argentina. Our cattery is registered in the association Asociación Felina Argentina which is a member of Fédération Internationale Féline

The Ocicat is a breed that started its days in US in the 1960s and was established from Siamese and Abyssinian stock; later, American Shorthairs were added to the mix and gave the breed their silver color, bone structure and distinct markings. You can read more about the Ocicat at Wikipedia

The coaches

The way the cats behave is much reflected by what they learn from each other but also from what they learn from humans and other animals. To be able to be a true family member and act accordingly in every day family life they need to observe and learn from all of us. Here is the team of coaches which learn them all about this life.
