Description:

I’m Ocelot—a small, colorful bundle, weighing in at only 5.6 pounds! Feisty and athletic, I will bound over to brush against you for some petting. I’m super friendly with people and will hop onto your lap for some loving. Once I’ve had my full of being pet, I’ll let you know with a bite, so you’ll need to keep your attention on me. I really don’t know any better, so my caretakers are in the process of teaching me to communicate more gently. I love to play with wand toys and climb to the top of the cat tree. A window or catio keep me entertained, as well. For a time I lived with a number of dominant cats and as a result, learned some dominant behavior. I will instigate fights with other cats, so I need to be the only kitty in my forever home. I get along OK with dogs, however.

My fur is thick and lush. A daily brushing will keep it shiny and mat-free. I require prescription food and medication for life to keep irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) under control. This is important, as I will get a tummy ache and diarrhea if I eat other food or treats. But don’t worry, I love my medicine! It has a yummy, savory taste, and I look forward every day to lapping it up right from the syringe. It’s my special treat and you will become my favorite person if you give it to me.

If you have some time and patience to share, I’m yours to love and care for. Watch my video to see me in in action!
