A muscular, brawny cat that resembles the wild Coastal Red Bobcat found in the Pacific Northwest, the Pixiebob has the loving personality of a domestic cat. This active, intelligent feline is often called a dog in disguise because she can be taught to fetch and walk on a leash. The Pixiebob is an easygoing, relaxed cat that is a loving companion for children and enjoys other pets.
