It is most important to us that all our kittens grow in normal, happy homes with people taking good care of them. At the moment, all our breeding females are placed in good foster homes, for we don’t want to overload the cat population at our home and on the other hand do not want to place retired, neutered cats to new homes. People are always welcome to visit us to meet us and our cats!
We breed with healthy ocicats with nice temperaments. We test for FIV and FeLV and have our breeding cats blood typed. Our home and foster homes are tested for dermatophytes regularily. We also have our breeding cats’ hearts ultrasound scanned and test for PRA and PK as needed.
We have litters planned for Freyja and Saima.We plan to mate Freyja in late summer or early autumn 2019, so the birth of her litter could be in Oct_Nov 2019. The kittens are ready for new homes at the age of 15 weeks so that would be in Jan-Feb 2020, if the plans go as we anticipate.
For Saima, the mating would be earlierst in Oct 2019. Her litter could be born in early 2020 and the kittens would thus maybe be ready for new homes in Mar-Apr 2020, but as you understand these are just our best estimates now.
We will update these plans here and at our Facebook pages later; including the sires for those litters and the schedules.

We value most the health and well-beign of the cats. Our breeding females and males are always tested for contagious diseases (FIV, FeLV, microsporum canis) and blood typed. We aim in checking the lines of the breeding cats as well as possible, in order to choose a good match of female and male cat.
Our cats share the same space as the humans, and they accompany us in everyday living at home, and even share our bed if they so wish (and they almost always do). Also the kittens are used to our normal daily routines and they will be socialized so that it’s quite easy for them to get accustomed to their new homes.
The kittens will be ready for their new homes at the age of 14-16 weeks or later, dewormed, and vaccinated for cat flu and panleukopenia. Other vaccinations can be agreed. Usually we don’t sell a kitten before the owner candidate has visited us but for people living in other countries we are more flexible. We would like to learn to know the owner(s) of our kitten so that we can be sure that the kitten has a reliable and good home. We offer our life-long support to the new owner(s) – the life span of the ocicat can be up to 15-20 years. You can always ask us anything related to cats. Also we would love to hear how you’re doing, from time to time, and we would be exited to even see some photos. 🙂
