Pixie bob basic information

Pixie-Bobs are approximately 50% larger than most domestic cats (which weigh 5.516 lb or 2.57 kg). Most Pixie-Bobs have black fur and skin on the bottom of their paws, tipped ears, heavy ear hair, black lips, and white fur around the eyes but with black eye skin. Their chins have white fur, but often have black skin under the white fur. Some of their whiskers change from Black (root - about 25%) to White (to the tip - about 75% of the whisker).Tiger-like fur pattern, but often have reddish tones mixed in. Stomach is often reddish-gold in color with some ticking (broken stripes). Most are short-haired, but some are long-haired. Eyes are almond shaped and tilted. Eyes are blue when kittens, then change to green, and finally to gold when several months old (some don't change completely to Gold, but have a Gold with a green tint). Tails can be non-existent (rumpy), or 2-4 inches (desired - TICA required), or long tails (Pixie was a long tail). The head is usually-pear shaped. The head and tail are considered the important characteristics. They grow for 3 years instead of 1 year like most domestic cats.

Resembling the bobcat in appearance, this feline is stunning. They maintain a wild appearance, but exhibit a domestic cat's personality. They are a true cat fanciers dream, maintaining the allure and grace of a wildcat, while still being domesticated enough to make a suitable pet for any home. The Pixie Bob is a larger breed, with adult males ranging from 14-26 pounds and females a bit smaller, usually 10-12 pounds. The males are also noticeably more muscular than the females. The Pixie Bob will not reach its mature size until the age of three or four. The mature Pixie Bob is characterized by a muscular body, which is framed with heavy and solid bone structure, loose skin with a primordial pouch. They have very short tails that generally range in length from one to six inches. Their coat is wooly and short most of the year, growing to medium length seasonally. The coat pattern of the Pixie Bob is also similar to the bobcat, possessing random spotting with rosettes and broken bars, which are often muted with heavy ticking. The colors typically stay within a range of tan to light fawn, brown, rusty red or golden color. Their facial appearance is very close to that of the typical Bobcat.
