Pixie-Bobs are a relatively recent breed, developed in the state of Washington and said to have in their lineage, naturally occurring Bobcat/domestic cat matings. However, DNA has shown these cats are purely domestic. 

The other "draw" to these cats is that they are said to get quite a bit larger than a DSH (domestic short hair). However, most do grow to about 11 lbs. Unlike other breeds, they continue to grow until 4 years of age. They don't have any major health problems. 

The are intelligent, playful and social and are said to be vocal with chirps and chatters versus many "meows."  

The pictures above showcase 2 kittens brought in to me recently for their first check up.  One was polydactyl (the one behind held up - you can see his cute mittens!).  

If you want one though, just be prepared as they can cost you >$1200.
