From the breeder:

My children and I fell in love with this breed at a CFA show while looking for a cat for our family. Out of hundreds of cats at this show my two young children both agreed on a solid chocolate Ocicat my children named Mikey. We enjoyed all the cat shows and the people that we met along the way and after a year of showing Mikey my daughter decided that she would like to show in the Premier class of CFA.
