Pixie Bob is a race of house pets allegedly descended from natural looking hybrid bobsleds. However, genetic engineering has unsuccessful to diagnose genetic markers[1] and Pixie-Bobs are thoughtful as a whole domestically for the goal of possession, feline fantastic regimentation, commerce and commerce. In the following years Brewer added 23 females from the Cascade assortment, which she thought were the result of natural mating between bobshells and household males.

Since then she has registred a trade mark in the USA to restrict the concept of allowed outcrossing in her cattery. At the same in the USA other breeder worked with very feral looking stable kittens and worked with Brewer to create a wide genetical basis and to build the foundations of today's Pixie Bob.

Under Brewer's leadership, they managed to register their new race with the International Cat Association (TICA) and finally with the American Cat Fancier's Association (ACFA). In 1993 the Pixie Bob was included by TICA in the catagory "Exhibition", in 1996 the bob was awarded the title "New Race and Colour" and in 1998 the title "Championat".

TICA first classifies the Pixie Bob as "Native New Breed", as " a new race that has been distinguished by selecting phenotypic similar specimens from a natural populations originating in a certain geographical region". Pixie bob is a fully endemic race of cats that have been chosen and raised to look like the Bobcat of this area.

The most Pixie bob have the coat and hide on the bottom of their feet, tilted limbs, thick hairs around their limbs, dark limbs and the coat around their skull. Her chin has whitish coat, but often dark hide under the whitish coat. Several of their Whiskers alternate from dark (root - about 25%) to light brown (to the tip - about 75% of the Whiskers).

Forehead should be strong and eye should have a triangle form. If they are catkins, then they switch to either yellow or red when they are several month old. Cocks may not be present (rumpy), or 2-4 inch (5-10 cm) (desired - TICA required), or long cocks (StoneIsland Pixie was a longtail).

There is currently no known or unknown predisposition to genetical similarities between the Pixie Bob and other races with suppressed tails, such as the Manx, the American Bobtail and the Japanese Bobtail. Pixie -Bobs are considered to be extremely smart, socially, active, brave and like to play with other cats.

The most pixie bob are very social with their owner and stranger. Nearly all Pixie-Bobs like to be in the same room as their owner and follows their owner through the home. Since the race is often crossed with "legend cats", Pixie-Bobs are genetic and not susceptible to breeding-plagues.

Pixie Bob farmers use a database of diseases to make sure that healthcare information can be logged and tracked. Cardiomycopathy (HCM) - Few cases are known since the emergence of the Pixie Bob race in the 80s. The Pixie Bob has been crossed with other cat races such as Bengal and Maine Coon in some of these cases.

In at least 50% of cases requiring an x-ray every year to verify the cats' condition, HCM is heritable. The Wikimedia Commons has uploaded files to Pixie-Bob.
