Who Is Who
Meet our Pixie Bob cats! Forest Hunter Pixie Bobs is incredibly proud to be THE cattery that has produced the highest-scoring Pixie Bob cat since the inception of the breed some 35 years ago.
TICA International Winner Regional Winner Quadruple Grand Champion Forest Hunter Northern Dancer who is residing in France achieved this incredible feat in just one show season. Most recent Forest Hunter Caliente achieve Grand Champion Alter status.
We got four wonderful TICA and ACFA registered ladies one of which is a newcomer. They represent 18+ years of hard work. Each of them has the exceptional type and features many well-known Pixie Bob catteries in their pedigrees, such as Stone Island, DixiePixie, Alsoomse, ExpresivePixie, Springcreek, etc.
Extensive pedigree studies paired with rigorous evaluation of our Pixie Bob cats against the written breed standard for over 18 years have resulted in near-perfect-looking Pixie Bob cats with a very consistent type. If you look at any of our boys, you can say: “Yes, that’s a Forest Hunter Pixie Bob”.
The perfect Pixie Bob cat face has a wild look with heavily hooded eyes that give the cat a brooding or even “upset” look. Some people call this a “wild gaze”. The muzzle is another major focus and needs to be large and prominent with a deep chin and significant width. A good Pixie Bob breeder is looking for a muzzle that is as wide as it is deep and resembles the shape of a soft-sided triangle.
When selecting a kitten to keep for our program, the tail is not even a consideration. Our now-retired girl Indy is the perfect example. She has an amazing head type and a longer tail. She gave us many kittens of amazing type and is the great grandmother to our up-and-coming Etta James.
