Luckily the Ocicat’s personality does not reflect a wild cat despite their likeness in looks. The Ocicat is intelligent, confident, outgoing, and seems to have many dog traits. They can be trained to fetch toys, walk on a lead, taught to ‘speak’, come when called, and follow other commands.
Loyal and devoted to their owners, the Ocicat does not like to be left alone for long periods so a feline companion (perferably another Ocicat) should be considered. They will get along with other cats and dogs, as well as children.
