Big, lively and outgoing, the Pixiebob’s devotion to his people belies his somewhat wild look. He loves spending time with his family, and it’s not unusual for him to learn to walk on a leash or chase after a toy and bring it back. He likes to be in the center of family goings-on, but he has a calm, relaxed attitude, making him more restful to be around than some other cat breeds. The Pixiebob is talkative, chirping and chattering as he tells you about his day. He weighs between eight and 17 pounds and lives for 13 or more years.
Brush the Pixiebob once a week to remove dead hair and keep his coat shiny and healthy. The only other grooming he needs is regular nail trimming, tooth brushing, and ear cleaning.
The Pixiebob is well suited to any home with people who will love him and care for him. Keep him indoors to protect him from cars, diseases spread by other cats and attacks from other animals.
