About Our American Bobtails

The American Bobtail cat is a dog in cat’s clothing. Many of our American Bobtails fetch, walk on a leash, come when called, play in water, meet you at the door, and sleep with you. These cats are easily trained. They are a very mild-­mannered cat, while still being very playful, fun and energetic. Their life is designed for playtime. They never get ‘old’ – they stay kittens forever.

Male American Bobtail cats tend to be larger, ranging from 15 – 25 pounds, while the females are a little smaller, ranging from 12 – 15 pounds.

American Bobtail cats come in every color. They come in both short hair or long hair (more accurately medium length non-matting hair). They’re very easy to care for. Of course the nails need to be clipped on a monthly basis and combing is always a good idea. My philosophy is a “clean cat will never shed or mat”.

American Bobtails get along with all other animals and are not aggressive, so they figure out how to fit into any situation. They have been used in Pet Therapy with special needs children and in nursing homes as a visiting cat. Their personality lends itself to adapt to the situation.
