Japanese Bobtail

The Japanese Bobtail cat breed is a centuries old breed of cat. They are a smaller breed born without a full tail. Their medium length, smooth, soft coat comes in many colors and patterns. The most common coloration is calico. Their head is known for being “equilateral” and features large oval eyes, large upright ears, and a fairly broad and round muzzle.


This breed of cat is very good with children and homes with other pets (including dogs). They are strong willed and adjust very well to most circumstances and surroundings. They are active and intelligent and will talk quite a bit. They love to play and adore being around people. They have a high need for human attention and interaction. So keep this in mind if considering adopting a cat.

Their favorite game seems to be anything involving pouncing and carrying their “catch” around in their mouths.
