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
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.

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.
