More spots - Meet Ashia, future queen

Introducing our new Chocolate Ocicat future queen Ashia. We just got home 15 minutes ago, and she's settling in very well.

Ashia was sired by favourite Cinnamon Oci boy, now de-sexed Gold Double Grand Champion Ozspots True Blue Aussie (also Farley's father )

I like her color and have seen chocolate Oci's before and loved them.
She is very pretty.
You need to take a lot of pictures.

Thanks I will get lots of pics later.

Chocolate comes in different of shades, Farley, like his mum is a cold choc (dark)
Ashia is like her father and much warmer, but not hot (red) her mum is a Tawny girl from NZ.

All your cats are pretty.
I wonder what color chocolate the Oci I saw was?
It just says chocolate spotted Ocicat.
There were 2 of them at the last cat show.
There are sure a lot more spotted cats in this site now.
There have not been any sphynx in months.
I can not wait to see more pictures of her.

Like Amanda says, chocolates come in various shades. The warmer chocolates are the most common, but they range from a darker/blackish chocolate to a reddish hot chocolate (that can be confused with cinnamon sometimes).

I think the darker ones probably have a tawny parent and the hot chocolates have a cinnamon parent (or grandparent). Charlie is a warm chocolate - most common shade in the chocolates. Jack is a bright cinnamon (last show one judge remarked "now THIS boy is a cinnamon - no mistaken his color!")

Maybe

My cold boy comes from cold mum, cinn dad. The cold mum comes from 2xchoc silvers. Then behind that is tawny, black silv and lav.
The cold mum only had 1 litter, 1 warm kitten 1 cold kitten before she had to be petted out.

New warmer girl is from cinn and tawny. The tawny girl has mostly tawny, black silv and choc in her background. All her choc kittens were warmer.

All the other warmer chocs I've seen have mostly choc backgrounds.

12 weeks, 2 days old She will have her first show early July, wasn't sure I'd have her for tomorrows show so didn't enter her in that.

That's ok, I still think 3 months is too young for the show halls, but guess its because its always been 4 months in the States

No kittens until next year, Malika will go off for mating Jan/Feb and Ashia in Feb/March. Wait and see how precocious they are, Oci's often call from 5 months.

While its nice if you can hold them off till about a year, that's not the case with Oci girls! You try to hold off as much as you can.

Beautiful addition!!!! She is lovely, and glad she is fitting in. Took a look at your website, congratulations on your hard work
Good luck

And that's why many Oci girls go untitled too.

Yep - I know. As long as they are producing show winners, I have changed my mind about my personal requirement in titles in pedigrees. But still would like to see at least 1/2 the cats with champion or grand in the first few generations.

Boy, I sure have missed alot -- apparently I've been away too long. Look at all these beautiful Ocicats on here! Someone asked about the Chocolate colorings - Sadie is a Hot Chocolate Ocicat.
post #24 of 26
Ashia is beautiful I love her tail
post #25 of 26
Sadie - glad you are back - we missed you lots - how is Sadie. We lost Charlie back in November unexpectedly. Jack is a triple Grand now! And waiting to hear from Central Office what place he got for kitten and alter this past season.

You have a LOT of catching up to do. I'm also waiting on my next Oci (he's not even born yet) - will be a choc-silver or a silver (whichever is better).

Nice to see your back Sadie

this is an old thread, Ashia's all grown up and having babies of her own. I've got a houseful of spotted beauties now
