Ocelot Domestic Cat — 5 Comments

  1. Errm – ocelot-domestic crosses have been bred. The first was an accident in a household with a rescued ocelot. The second was to confirm the paternity of the offspring. The ocelot has since gone to a permanent home and I’ve no further info on the offspring. There was no intention to create a breed, but it has confirmed the inter-fertility of the 2 species.

  2. The Ocelot is incredibly beautiful. Another of the smaller wildcats I would love to meet one day! Stunning creatures – I love them from what I have learn’t. I hope they don’t dissapear. That’s my first thought when I admire any animal: “how soon will we kill it off” ‚Ķeven fish, when I think of them too I have that exact same thought before I can enter any further into admiration for such beautiful creatures we have here. It’s reached that point.

    It’s now a matter of when, no if. And my first question is a painful when. Actually when I think of an animal, or see a photo of one on the internet – the more I like it, or think about it, simply, the ore pain I feel because the more I understand what we are losing.

    • I know exactly how you feel Marc because humans are systematically destroying all of nature and animals and if they don’t stop it can only end one way, then it will be too late.

    • I am the same. It appears to be all disappearing. Sometimes I choose a subject based on what people search for even if it is wrong as it helps to straighten people out.

      There is quite bit of trade in ocelots amongst “exotic cat aficionados”. They treat them like pets but they have to be in enclosures. They are semi-tame but wild. You know when are you sitting next to a tamed wild cat. They are very far removed from a domestic cat in temperament.
