Grooming

Their coat, being dense and plush, benefits from weekly brushing. It reduces shedding, prevents matting, and distributes natural oils.

Origins

The Pixie Bob is believed to have originated from the United States in the mid-1980s. While there’s a popular belief that they are descendants of a North American Bobcat due to their tail and appearance, genetic studies have not found evidence of Bobcat DNA in the breed.

Key Characteristics Of Pixie Bobs

Are Pixie Bobs Family-Friendly?

Yes. The Pixie Bob’s gentle nature combined with their affectionate demeanour makes them excellent family pets.

Common Health Issues & Considerations

Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy

Polydactylism

Dental Problems

Nature / Temperament

Loyal, Intelligent, Active, Gentle, Friendly

Suitable Environment

While they adapt well to indoor living, they’d appreciate a safe outdoor space or a catio. They’re versatile and can adjust to both spacious homes and apartments, as long as their activity needs are met.

Other Considerations

Their appearance often resembles that of a wild bobcat in miniature, with a short tail and tufted ears.

Many have a unique chirping sound, different from a typical meow.

Their dog-like behaviour, including their loyalty and trainability, is a standout feature.

How can I take good care of my Pixie Bob?

Nutrition

Pixie Bobs are active cats with muscular builds. Feed them a diet rich in high-quality animal proteins to ensure they get the essential amino acids. While both wet and dry food can be good, wet food can help in hydration. If you opt for dry kibble, make sure it’s premium quality, and always have fresh water available.

Grooming

Unlike many cat breeds, some Pixie Bobs tolerate baths. However, it’s not frequently required unless the cat gets particularly dirty. Always use cat-specific shampoos.

Exercise

Dedicate time every day to play with your Pixie Bob. It strengthens your bond and ensures they get the physical activity they need. Toys that mimic prey, like feather wands, can keep them engaged and provide a good workout.

Training

Their intelligence makes them responsive to clicker training. It’s a great way to teach them commands or tricks. Like most cats, Pixie Bobs are usually easy to litter train. Ensure the litter box is always clean and placed in a quiet, accessible spot.

This is general information and should not be relied on for adopting or purchasing advice.

Yes, they’re social creatures and thrive on interaction.
