OK, not a tiger, but an ocelot. Still tiny, still cute. Still SQWEEEEEEEElicious!

If you’re in the market for a cute spotted cat that looks like an ocelot but is tame, consider the Ocicat. Unlike other breeds that look like their wild brethren and have wildcat DNA, the Ocicat looks like an Ocelot but is bred from Siamese, Abyssinian and silver tabby American Shorthair lines:

Ocicats are a social, outgoing breed. Many people say Ocicats are more like dogs than cats, but they mean it as a compliment. Many Ocicats can be trained to fetch, walk on a leash, speak, sit and lie on command. They are champs in feline agility competitions. Some even enjoy swimming.

The CFA Ocicat Breed Council has more info on the breed.
