I/. the origins of the pixiebob
Part 4: PIXIE'S STORY

It was in 1985 that Carol Ann Brewer started the program of the pixiebobs. She acquired a kitten supposed to have such a heritage: born of a polydactyl mother (having a number of toes above normal: 6 or 7 instead of 5 on the front, 5 or 6 instead of 4 on the back) and a father supposed to be a bobcat, Sasha, also a polydactyl. She acquired other kittens supposed to have such a heritage. Keba of StoneIsland and Maggie of StoneIsland were two of these legendary cats. They gave birth to Pixie, a female with an incredibly wild look. From these lines was created the pixiebob. Certain pixiebobs kept the polydactyl characteristic of Sasha.

PIXIEPixie was one of the first cats to be used in the program for the developpement of pixiebobs. Pixie was the progeny of two very special Cats. The appearance of that cat was simply ethereal. She gave her name to the breed. Carol Ann Brewer lost Pixie in 1991. Pixie looked like the Coastal Red bobcat. Carol Ann Brewer says that she left for a few hours her cats and her dogs. When she came back, she found the door wide ope All her cats were in the entry, siting in a circle, silent. Pixie had left. She never came back. Pixie had a long tail.

So, the pixiebob originate in Bellingham, Washington, and the standard was written to the colony Carol Ann Brewer had, which had Pixie as the matriarch of the group. The standard was written for a unique set a traits that Pixie and her children, and grandchildren and great-grandchildren had/have.... So, without some Pixie lines, a cat cannot look just like the standards intends...

In 1994, the pixiebob entered the category V of TICA (The International Cat Association). In 1995, it entered the NBC (New Breed and Color Category). On May 1, 1998, a new breed was born in the United States: The pixiebob could compete in Championship.
