Appearance
Pixie Bobs are much larger than the average cat, and they have bobcat like patterns on their fur.
 
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. The brow should be heavy and the eyes should have a triangular shape. 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).
 
Temperament
Pixie Bobs are described as dog like and enjoy human companionship. They enjoy fetching objects and can be trained to walk on leashes. They are highly intelligent, social, active (but not hyper-active), bold, and enjoy playing with other animals
 
Care
Pixie Bobs require grooming, and regular tooth and claw maintenance.
 
Health
Because of their diverse gene pool, Pixie Bobs do not suffer from any breed specific maladies.
