Overview

The Pixiebob is a relatively recent domestic breed that originated in the Northwestern United States. This is a medium to large-sized, muscular, brawny cat that was intentionally bred to closely resemble the wild Coastal Red Bobcat found in the mountains of the Pacific Northwest. The breed has a stocky athletic build, large bone structure and long, heavy legs. Its hind legs are a bit longer than its front legs. This, together with its big paws and long toes, give the Pixiebob a rolling gait similar to that of true wild felines.

Pixiebobs are outgoing, friendly cats with an almost dog-like devotion to their human family members. They crave companionship, affection and attention. They are intelligent, respectful, playful animals that usually can be left unattended during a normal workday, although they probably would enjoy the friendship of another household pet. However, owners of the Pixiebob must be prepared to lavish plenty of attention on their pets once they walk through the door after a long workday. This breed is bright enough and willing enough to be taught to walk on a halter and leash so that it can participate in family outings and activities. Imagine the look on the neighbors’ faces when they see someone walking a “bobcat” on a leash. Seriously, despite their exotic appearance, this breed is all about loving and anything but wild.
