Your Pet, Our Passion.


The Pixiebob is a large cat with a stocky, robust build. Resembling the North American Bobcat in miniature, the Pixiebob has a muscular body, pear shaped face with tufted ears, and a woolly coat that stands out from the body.  

The Pixiebob typically has a short, even non-existent tail, however this varies from cat to cat and they can have any length of tail. 

Pixiebobs are typically short haired, however long-haired kittens do occur, this is also one of the few breeds that allow polydactyl (extra toes) within the breed standard – a maximum of seven toes is permitted on each paw.

Some Pixiebob cats are polydactyl, meaning that they are born with an extra toes on either their front or back feet. This can cause problems as the extra toes may not be attached to the feet properly and  
may not be fully functioning, making them more prone to injury. Because of this, encouraging extra toes in breeding is not recommended.
