The Breeding Policy for Ocicat and Aztec Cats

Breeding PolicyThe aim of this breeding policy is to give advice and guidance to breeders to enable them to observe what is considered “best practice” in breeding Ocicat and Aztec cats. The over-riding factor should always be to maintain health, and preserve the unique qualities of these stunning breeds, type, coat colour, pattern, conformation and temperament, which make them sought after both for showing and as wonderful family pets. The breeding policy accompanies and supplements the Registration Policies and should be read in conjunction with those documents.
