Ocicat color choices

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I decided to add a 3rd color choice for Jack (Charlie's baby brother next year). I kinda like the silvers (in any breed) so I added the plain silver color Oci to my list of choices for the breeder.

Choices in order:

Cinnamon, Cinnamon-Silver or Silver.

The show theme was "Pirates of the Caribbian" - told the show committee they have to repeat that theme - was a year too early...

So many colours to choose from! I think all three are gorgeous It's a good idea to widen the colour range, might speed up you getting the kitten since I know you're going to wait for a really good cat.

Oci's only have 12 color choices And already have the chocolate

Orientals/Rexes and some other breeds can have over 300 different color combinations now

While Bengals don't have a much of a range in colors, you could count in the different tabby patterns......

I'll still get the kitten next spring - no sooner - just an extra choice for that show alter

'Only' 12? That's still a lot compared to what I'm used to in my chosen breed obsession

I often get tempted wanting to get a second cat but I know Her Highness wouldn't appreciate that at all, oh well..

Well Korats and Russian Blues only have one color. So do Singapuras

One of the Bengal owner/breeders on here should make a list of the colors/patterns and see how many choices that Bengals have (have to make a choice of spotting - round, arrowhead, pawprint, etc.) - betting Bengals have close to or over 12 combinations

I guess you'd have to add the "non-spotted Ocicat" choices too in some colors - that would make it much more.

Hehehe and to get maximum variety you'd split up the brown spotted bengals up into the low rufous ones, the ones that have almost chocolate or cinnamon spots (but still a black tail tip), high rufous like Nikita, the ones with the more pale golden background colour, and the list goes on!

Probably would be Charlie's comment as well - she just spells it better

I have to say the cinnamon is still my favourite, but then I am very fond of cinnamon in the OSH and it does give fantastic contrast in tabby patterns!
