Appearance Bred to resemble a domestic version of the Pacific Northwest coastal red bobcat, Pixie-Bobs have heavily hooded, inverted triangular eyes with bushy brows. Their pear-shaped heads have rounded ears ending in Lynx tips. Longhaired cats develop muttonchops on the cheeks. These substantial cats have prominent shoulder blades that produce a rolling gait, complemented by deep, powerful flanks; a broad, well-developed chest; and a primordial belly pouch. A naturally short tail of between 2 and 6 inches is preferred. Feet can have up to seven toes (polydactyl).
Colour Light to medium shades of brown spotted tabby in a random "buckshot" pattern preferred, with a base of mousy grey, like a wild hair. The appearance can change substantially with the seasons. Preferred eyes are gold to brown, but gooseberry green is also accepted.
Grooming Even longhaired Pixie-Bobs have "wash and wear" coats. Lifestyle The Pixie-Bob enjoys plenty of playtime and builds strong attachments to family members. They excel with children and enjoy families with dogs. The ideal owner enjoys daily interaction with cats and does not leave home for long stretches of time.
Personality Pixie-Bobs possess loyalty, trainability and courage. This extremely intelligent cat loves water. Normally quiet, they will talk to you in chirps and chatters rather than meow. These natural hams require regular attention. They get along with other animals, children and love to play.
