Acquired: Other (stray, given cat by friend etc.)

Lately my immediate family of in-laws has adopted a number of Bobtail siblings from a friends' litter of kittens. And in each case, they adopted a pair from the same litter...and in each case, there's a real variance in personality that should be observed!
From what I've seen from the bobtails they own, their personality has a wide variance. In each case, one of the pair is social, active, interested in people, and fond of hoarding all the toys in their basket. And on the other hand, the other cat is highly skittish, especially with outsiders. While even the shy cats are clever and active little cats, the personality differences are marked - especially since in both cases these are litter-mates socialized much the same way.
Be aware of personalities with these cats, in short. One kitten may be a goofy and friendly clown, and his sister may be as timid as can be. There's a pretty broad range with this breed.
