A-Z: Pixie-Bob



Like the bobcat it resembles, the pixie-cat has a one to six inch shortened tail. It's a healthy, large cat with a double coat and polydactyl toes. This cat requires very little grooming but it does need it's claws trimmed regularly.  It has few health issues, tends to live a long life, is dog-like in its devotion and can even be walked on a leash.  If you are interested in adopting please visit your local shelter or rescue, petfinder.com or overstock.com.

  4. I have never seen one of those cats. The purring reminds me of days gone by.

  5. If only my husband didn't have a thing about complete cats. The short tail and extra toes would unnerve him. I've seen other cats with extra toes though.

  6. Hi, dear Sandra!

    I enjoyed learning about the Pixie-Bob cat and wouldn't mind owning one. Having a cat that behaves more like a dog would be fun because the main problem I always had with cats is their detachment. My modus operandi is to shower a pet with attention and affection and I prefer an animal that appreciates it and reciprocates.

    Thank you, dear friend Sandra!

    1. Hi Shady. Some cats are detached and some just can't get enough attention. Like people, they all have their own unique personalities.

  14. I had a cat named Dog (a Russian blue, NOT a pixie bob) that I took everywhere with me. He was also leash trained and went everywhere on a leash. People thought I was odd, especially after they found out his name!

    I've never heard of a Pixie-Bob, but I really am enjoying this wonderful series where I'm learning SO much about so many different cats.
