Japanese Bobtail Cat Breed

Photo of a Japanese Bobtail catThis ancient, rare breed was originally found in Japan and throughout most of southeast Asia. These beautiful and very active cats have a very unique tail which looks like a pom-pom – the result of a distinctive combination of curves that is unique to each cat. These long, lanky cats have very sleek and powerful legs that make them very adept at running and leaping (look out, nick nacks!) 

Very intelligent and affectionate, the Japanese Bobtail has a distinctive oriental look that is given by high cheekbones and slightly almond-shaped eyes. This exquisite cat comes in a rainbow of colors and coat patterns in both long-haired and short-haired varieties. A word of caution – Japanese Bobtail Cats are addictive! It’s hard to stop at owning just one!
