I've seen them, but I've never known anyone who has owned one.

Ocicats are a very outgoing breed. They are often considered to have the spirit of a dog-in a cat's body. Most can easily be trained to fetch, walk on a leash and harness, come when called, speak, sit, lie down on command and a large array of other dog-related tricks. Some even take readily to the water. Ocicats are also very friendly. They will typically march straight up to strangers and announce that they'd like to be petted. This makes them great family pets, and most can also get along well with animals of other species. Ocicats make excellent pets for people who want to spend a lot of time with their cat, but they do require more attention than cats who aren't so people-oriented.

I've seen them at shows, and from meeting them briefly the impression I got is they're wonderful kitties. So Friendly!

I did a search and found some pictures, they are stunning!

Apparently they're like bengals but without the wild crossbreeding.

Beautiful cat and kittens! I love the one where she's hugging her baby, and the one with the Dalmation is cute.

I always thought they were bigger than that.
I know in the USA at least it is illegal to own them in some states. I think some episode of Huston Animals Cops or something the like they were taking one from its owner because it was illegal in the state they lived in.

Hmm, I dunno maybe I am getting confused.
