Pixie-Bobs are a mellow sort of cat, and typically between 8 to 12 pounds. They love to be with their owners, but Pixie-Bobs are not considered hyperactive by any stretch of the imagination. These cats enjoy laid-back hang sessions with the family and have been described as “dog-like” in personality. They are a larger breed, and resemble a bob-cat in many ways, the most apparent being their cropped tail.
Common Health Conditions
- The Pixie-bob is prone to obesity if not given a proper diet and weight control measures.
- Hairballs can often occur with excessive grooming and licking. While these typically pass through the cats system, sometimes the hairballs can become lodged within the cats stomach or cause intestinal blockage.
- Spread by infected mosquitoes, heartworm is increasingly being recognized as an underlying cause of health problems in domestic cats.
