Pixie-bob Pictures

Two fine Pixie-bob pictures by the great, the famous Helmi Flick. Helmi has been a specialist cat photographer for many years and her photographs have a special Helmi character: beautiful positioning of the cat due to excellent cat wrangling, great lighting and not forgetting beautiful high quality show cats.

The above cat was bred by Marilyn Trenk of ColoradoPixies Cattery. He looks a bit like a bobcat, which is good because that is the objective! He has a nice stocky, wild appearance. Pixie-bobs are all domestic by the way. There is no wild blood in this cat breed. Marilyn says they are low shedding so if you don't like hair that much, the Pixie-bob might be the cat breed for you. I fancy adopting one myself to be honest.

Here he is again. Gloria Stephens who wrote the excellent, Legacy of the Cat (ISBN 0-8118-2910-3) says the Pixie-bob (also spelt "Pixiebob") has a muted spotted tabby coat.  Helmi says that there is ticking between the spots. Ticking is where each hair is tipped with darker colour (Robinson's Genetics). The classic ticked coat is on the Abyssinian cat.
