Pixie bob History history

The Pixie Bob is not widely recognized at this time, but it is gaining acceptance and was officially recognized by TICA in 1994. In spite of its lack of recognition the Pixie Bob may have been in existence for centuries. There is much debate over its origins. Some state that it is a hybrid from the North American Bobcat and that such breeding began with the first immigrants from Europe. Others maintain that the Pixie Bob is a new breed started by Carol Ann Brewer in Washington. Whichever is true, it is a fact that today's Pixie Bob has been being developed to the modern standards since 1985, begun by breeder Carol Ann Brewer. Carol Brewer's lines stem from the mating of a Coastal Red Bobcat and a polydactyl (many toed) short tailed cat. The progeny of this union were thusly named, 'Legend Cats'. It is from these Legend Cats, that Carol Brewer began her breeding program. Today's Pixie Bob descends from these Legend Cats not Bobcats.
