pixiebobs: Health, doglike temperament and bobcat wild beauty
and life cycle The pixiebob cats generally begin breeding by their second
summer, though females may start as early as their first year.
Sperm production begins each year by September or October,
and the male will be fertile into the summer. A dominant male
will mate with a female several times, generally from winter
until early spring but most mating takes place during February
and March. Once the male recognizes that the female is receptive,
he grasps her in the typical felid neck grip. During courtship,
the otherwise silent pixiebob may let out loud screams, hisses,
or other sounds. The female has an estrous cycle of 44 days,
with the estrus lasting five to ten days. Bobcats remain reproductively
active throughout their lives.
pixiebob kittens The female raises the young alone.
One to six, but usually two to four, kittens are born in April
or May, after roughly 60 to 66 days of gestatio There may
sometimes be a second litter, with births as late as September.
The female generally gives birth in some sort of enclosed
space. The young open their eyes by the ninth or tenth day.
They start exploring their surroundings at four weeks and
are weaned at about two months. Within three months they usualy
leaves us to go and live with their new family.
