Ocicat
The first Ocicat was created in 1964 when Virginia Daly, a Michigan breeder interested in new and unusual varieties of cats, tried to create a Siamese with Abyssinian-colored points. Daly bred a seal point Siamese female to a ruddy Abyssinian male; the subsequent kittens looked like Abyssinians but carried the gene for the Siamese pattern. She then bred one of the half-Abyssinian kittens to another full Siamese and achieved her goal of producing an Abyssinian-pointed Siamese kitten.

Leopard Seal
This seal gets its common name from the numerous dark spots on its coat. The name leopard seal, though, is sometimes also applied to other spotted seals, such as the Weddell's seal. A solitary seal, it has huge canine teeth and massive jaws. Generally it feeds on krill, which it strains from the water with its specialized teeth. It is the only seal that preys on warm-blooded animals; it catches penguins and even other seals, which it pursues underwater. A fast swimmer, it also preys on fish and squid.

Harp Seal
Harp seals migrate in large groups as much as five thousand miles (8,000 km) from feeding grounds in the north to breeding grounds in the south. They spend about half the year in the north, feeding on fish and invertebrates. In the spring, thousands of females congregate on pack ice to give birth and nurse their white-furred pups. Following weaning, the pups shed their white fur, which is replaced by silver-gray pelage with dark spots. After successive molts, the spots are replaced by the typical harp-shaped marking on the back. By June the harp seals are moving northward again...
