Although each boy has his own house with large run in the garden, each has a daily excursion into the garden, usually in the early morning, when everyone else is inside asleep. Each goes out on his own and is free to race from one end to the other, climb trees, chew grass, and greatest joy, overmark their territory, obliterating the hard work of the one that went out before him. They usually take themselves back home again after about 45 minutes.

CATIATORS REDHOTCURRY OF THICKTHORN

Cinnamon Ocicat Male carrying dilute

Curry arrived here in December 2006, somewhat traumatized from his journey. He has settled , enjoys the garden, and has had several lovely litters.

He is a deep rich cinnamon and has excellent type, with a strong head and square muzzle. His pattern and contrast are beautiful.

Many thanks to Anne McCulloch for letting me have handsome Curry. I hope he will be instrumental in establishing the fawns and fawn silvers, so that all ocicat colours will be fully represented in the UK.

Here he is enjoying a spot of 2008 May Day sunshine in the garden.
