Born with a bunny-puffy tail, Japanese Bobtails hop and run like rabbits. They are fearless and get along fine with dogs but tend to form insulated cliques with other Bobtail cats. Their eyes are large with an Asian slant, and paws are small and oval. The Japanese Bobtail has become famous as the seated, waving, stylized porcelain cats perched in the windows of Japanese stores and restaurants. Known as good luck charms, these cuties have ears that tip forward making them look like avid listeners. They are naturally active and curious, and great with kids but watch out if they don’t get the attention they crave. Japanese Bobtails bore easily and boredom can lead to household destruction.
Fun Fact: The tail of the Japanese Bobtail is naturally short, not docked, and it’s as individual as a human fingerprint. Made of bone curves, notches, and kinks, their unique tails are well hidden under a pom-pom of fluff.
