Cat Breed Description

The Japanese Bobtail cat is a naturally occuring breed that has existed in Japan for at least a thousand years. The Japanese Bobtail is distinguished by a naturally short tail, which can resemble a rabbit's tail. No two tails are ever alike. However, the tail should not be handled roughly and no attempt should be made to "straighten" it. The kinks and curves are a natural part of the tail.

Japanese Bobtail kittens are bred in many colors and patterns, although the most poular is the is the tri-color, or mi-ke (white with red and black) good-luck pattern.

The Japanese Bobtail personality is outgoing, friendly, active, intelligent and talkative, even entering into entire conversations with "their" people. Although Japanese Bobtails like to talk, they are not noisy and do not have loud voices, though they may make an amazing range of sounds.


Photo Cat's registered name: GC Ginchika Flash Forward, DM
Cat's call name: Flash
Breed: Japanese Bobtail
Color: Silver Tabby and White
Date of Birth (mm/dd/yy): 02/25/2010
Sex: Female; spayed
Pet or show quality? Show
Registered with: CFA
Cat's location: Southern California
Home preferences: Children of any age OK. 1 or 2 other cats OK; dogs OK.
Notes: Flash is a striking blue eyed silver tabby and white. She loves people, and is extremely outgoing and talkative. She was a show cat, and had several successful litters and was an excellent mother. Now it's time for her to find her special people and be a spoiled pet for the rest of her life. She loves people, is tolerant of dogs, but can be very bossy and mean with other cats, depending on how they are. I think she would be fine with a mellow, non-confrontational neutered male, but she would not get along well with another female. She is still very active, and she loves her people very much. She will want to be involved in whatever you are doing, and be in whatever room you are in. If you are interested, I can send photos.
