My lovely Phelps

My first bobtail is a male and I named it Phelps. It has a medium head a little tail. This little tail has a good plume and long, shaggy, thick hair covers the tail.
The color of the eyes befits the color of the coat. It ears are always alert because of the ear’s rounded tips and cats with a bunch of hair are loved by people.
My Phelps is a shorthaired breed and the coat is semi-dense and characterized by a rough and rigorous at the top coat and soft, downy undercoat. It has a double coat and the double coat is rough and rugged rather than light and soft.
It is intelligent in the sense that it loves playing a catching game (throwing an object and fetching it) and it obeys commands. It is friendly with me and other people who come to visit me. It loves been carried and cuddled. It craves for my attention by meowing or hopping into my laps.
It is not very vocal and it is annoying when it make a short, sharp or high noise.
It is very active, athletic, energetic, playful and friendly. It mixes easily with dogs and run with them that made it have dog-like characteristics. Since bobtails generally are skilled in escaping, I put it in an enclosed surrounding spacious enough for it to run around.
Introducing bobtail in a new place should be done gradually in order to respect the older pets.
