History [ edit ]

The American Bobtail originated in the late 1960’s in the USA and owes its name to its extremely short tail. It descended from a naturally bobtailed feral cat, which was found by a young couple in an Indian reservation in Southern Arizona who later bred him to a long tail female, the litter being the foundation stock of the modern American Bobtail. If this story is true, it is a first-classe example of breed development through “natural” selection. However, the opinions as to the origin of this breed are not accordant. Some experts say that the American Bobcat Cat, the Manx Cat and the Japanese Bobtail Cat are in the bloodline of the American Bobtail Cat. However, this remains to be proved for, in one hand, the American Bobtail’s rectangular body resembles that of a wild bobtailed cat and on the other hand it has an above average intelligence which is a characteristic necessary to survive in a feral environment.The American Bobtail Cat is not heavy when compared to many other breeds, its weight ranging from 3-6,8 Kg (7-15 pounds).
