Part 1: General description
source: TICA Trend oct/nov 2001

The pixiebob (PB) is a domestic cat with a visual similarity to the North American Bobcat yet a loving, trusting, tractable nature. The pixiebob Longhair (PL) is the longhaired version of this breed.

General description: The goal of the pixiebob breeding program is to create a domestic cat with a visual similarity to the North American Bobcat.

This wild look does not reflect the true nature of the cat, which is loving, trustworthy and tractable. The pixiebob comes in the shorthair and longhair varieties.

The pixiebob has an inverted pear-shaped head, heavily hooded eyes, stong muzzle and chin.
