History of the Pixie Bob ?
Carol Ann Brewer was the founder of the Pixie Bob breed. With a Costal Red Bobcat and a polydactyl barn cat, a male from their first litter and a female kitten, named Pixie, with the same heritage were purchased by Brewer and became the original Pixie Bobs. Brewer introduced 23 cats in her programme that she believed were the result of naturally occurring matings between the domestic cat and the bobcat. Brewer referred to them as ‘Legend Cats’ which has been registered as a trademark in the US. Other breeders collaborated with Ms Brewer using distinctly wild looking barn cats and were registered for the first time with The International Cat Association (TICA). In 1990 the Pixie Bob was accepted in the “Exhibition” category and then in 1996 became a “New Breed and Colour” status. In 1998 the Pixie Bob finally gained Championship status and was classified by TICA as a “Native New Breed” but is now a “Newer Natural/Regional Breed” (NNRB)
