The highest achievement in the CFA show ring is accomplished when a cat successfully earns the title of National Winner (NW). CFA established the title of Grand Champion in 1930 and the title of National Winner first appeared in 1971. In CFA, each year the top 25 cats in Championship, 25 Kittens and 25 cats in Premiership are awarded the NW title.

The Ocicat breed came about somewhat by accident... Mrs Virginia Daly, a noted CFA breeder of the time, was attempting to create an Aby-pointed Siamese cat. In the litter, one of the resulting kittens was a spotted kitten, which her daughter named an Ocicat, due to its resemblance to the wild Ocelot. Later, American Shorthairs were also added into the gene pool, to provide some substance to the breed.

The Ocicats were first accepted for CFA registration in 1966, but weren't advanced to championship competition until 1987. It wasn't until the 1991-92 show season that the Ocicats had their first National Winner - a chocolate spotted male named GC, NW Cinnful Chivas of Starspots, who was 22nd Best Cat.

In the 2002-03 show season, an Ocicat earned "Best" for the first time - GC, NW Wild Rain Firewater of Dotdotdot, a chocolate spotted male who was Best Kitten. 2005-06 saw another Ocicat kitten earn a "Best" - GC, BW, NW Dotdotdot's Stradivarious.

Below is a table with the national winning Ocicats including their name, color, sex, year of their win, and the award they earned.
