What is a Pixie Bob Cat?

Pixie Bob kittens and cats are charmers!

They happily adapt to life with singles, couples, or families, and do very well with kids, other cats and dogs. You will love them in a minute!

Forest Hunter Pixie Bobs is a small, in-home breeder of Pixie Bob kittens and cats located in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains near Seattle.

We have been showing and raising Pixie bob kittens since 2003.

Pixie Bobs started with found barn cats near Mt. Baker in Bellingham, Washington.

The breed founder was enamored with their looks reminiscent of the Red Coastal Bobcat, and their dog-like personalities.

Paired with Manx cats, Bengals and just some domestic housecats, breeders worked tirelessly to perfect the look.

But do they have bobcat ancestry? Absolutely not!



For two decades, we have been a trusted source of Pixie Bob cats in the beautiful state of Washington. We work hard in providing superior family-friendly cats for loving homes across America.

Our kittens are raised in a loving home environment, right alongside us and our happy Pomeranian pup Wookie. From the start, they get plenty of socialization opportunities – including two bunnies and one dog!



Our cats are amazing and it’s safe to say that the world has yet to see a perfect Pixie Bob – so we’re continuously striving for perfection! Each one is unique with its own extraordinary strengths.

the look

The Pixie Bob is a large cat with substantial boning. The most important feature of a Pixie Bob is its face.

Hooded eyes that give the cat an almost brooding expression and a prominent muzzle are an absolute must.

the size

We are often asked how much our cats weigh as adults. The average domestic house cat male weighs around 8-12 lbs while a male Pixie Bob cat weighs around 13-18 lbs

You might have a cat that is 20 lbs, but is it healthy or overweight?


the temperament

Pixie Bobs have remarkable personalities. They are dog-like in behavior – come when called, many are self-trained fetchers and do well with leash & harness training.

One of our kittens is an avid hiker and enjoys hikes around Snoqualmie Pass with its owners.

Pixie Bob Cat Characteristics

The Pixie Bob cat is one of the most captivating breeds in existence. With its short tail and exotic appearance, you can’t help but be fascinated with this furry friend from Earth’s imagination!

But it turns out that these cats were never truly “exotic” at all – DNA testing has shown there have never been any wild bobcat genes present. The Pixie Bob cat is one of the most affectionate and friendliest cats you’ll ever meet. They’re also sweet-natured, love kids (including their own), other cats, or dogs that are well behaved!

Unlike some cats, Pixie Bob kitties are loyal and friendly. They enjoy many of the same activities as dogs do such as walking on leashes or playing fetch! Some might even say these furry felines have more personality than their canine counterparts since they’re so quick to show affection for their owners.

They often follow them around like a shadow when it’s time for playtime (and we don’t know about you but that sounds pretty great)! If you want a big, playful cat with an unusual appearance and outstanding personality then the Pixie Bob may be your perfect match!

All of our kittens are raised in a home environment together with our cats and our dog Wookie. Over the past 20 years, we have developed a great understanding of this breed, its characteristics, genetics, nutritional and emotional needs.

Our kittens are loving companions that get along with kids, other cats, and dogs making them as versatile as they come.

Our philosophy is simple. Put in the very best and you will get the very best. We spend countless hours socializing with our kittens. Each parent cat gets yearly veterinary care. Most of them end up staying with us after they retire.
