Pixie-Bob Cat Breed

Photo of a Pixie Bob CatLegend has it that the large, brown-spotted Tabby with the big feet, bobbed tail, wild look and gentle purr-sonality can trace it’s ancestry back to a cross between a wild North American Bobcat and a domestic barn cat. Whether or not this is true, the Pixie-Bob bears a striking resemblance to the native American Bobcat. 

Despite it’s possibly wild heritage, the Pixie Bob is a truly domesticated cat. Originally developed in Washington State by Carol Ann Brewer, this beautiful, intelligent and affectionate breed has since found it’s way into the hearts (and laps) of cat lovers everywhere. Polydactyl (many toed) paws are a common occurrence in the breed, and these larger paws add to the breed’s wild look, but do not hinder it’s ability to get around. Loyal, trustworthy, gentle, affectionate, and almost “dog-like”, Pixie Bobs thrive on human attention and prefer the comforts of home to the call of the wild. If you’re looking for a big, loveable, lug of a cat with a truly exotic appearance, the Pixie-Bob could well be the cat for you.
