American Bobtail Cat

Breed Appearance

The American Bobtail breed is still developing, having only been developed in the US in the late 1960s. The initial Bobtail bloodline came about by mating a short-tailed brown tabby male and a seal point Siamese female. The breed's most notable feature is a "bobbed" tail, shorter in length than a typical cat's tail. This came about as the result of a genetic mutation affecting the development of the tail. Bobtail cat's also have a stocky body.

Breed Behaviour

Bobtail cats are reportedly playful, energetic and friendly. They are social with their owners and will actively seek human attention.
