The American Bobtail Story

By

United States

Posted Mar 24, 2015

The American Bobtail is one of the best cat breeds to have including enjoy. This cat is probably not for those who want a cat that they can leave at home while they work and come home and show very little love, or interest. This cat relishes on attention and is an extremely playful one. Tiger Lily, the cat I had of this breed, was perfect for me growing up because I could snuggle it at night and could pull out my laser pointer and play with it for hours on end. The intelligence of the cat is another great quality. This cat is adept at problem solving, often escaping from closed doors and locked cages. Although, a magnificent cat to own, there are some flaws. This cat requires a bit of grooming because it will not sufficiently self groom. This is a problem that ties to the attention you are willing to give. The American Bobtail is perfectly suited for those with families (especially with children) and dog lovers because of the breed's playful nature.
