More details about the Pixie-bob

Pixie-bob: Origins and history

In 1986, Carol Ann Brewer rescued a male cat with a very short tail, who came up to about knee height. She called him Keba. Keba then mated with an unsterilised domestic female named Maggie, who gave birth to a litter of kittens. Mrs Brewer kept one of the female kittens which had a speckled pattern on a red-fawn coat, and called her Pixie - this being the origin of the breed’s name. Mrs Brewer started to look for cats who had the same type of look as the Pixie-bob. After her determined efforts, in 1993, a request was made to TICA to recognise these cats as a breed, but it wasn’t until 1998 that champion status was first granted to one of these cats and TICA officially recognised the breed.

Pixie-bob: Purchase price

The average purchase price of a Pixie-bob is between £175 and £1000, with this varying depending on the lineage, breeding, age or even the sex. For your monthly budget, you should allow an average of £35 per month to meet their needs by offering them a high quality diet and ensuring you keep them in good health.
