Our Breeding Program started with several cats whose ancestry dates back to Carol Brewers original Stone Island lines along with other early breeders like DixiePixie, Nativesons, Bobcat Legends and PixiePaws. We are so grateful for those who trusted us to start our program!
Our goal is to contribute continued genetic diversity and new bloodlines to this amazing breed. With a small number of Pixiebob breeders in the US and around the world it's critical to not only breed for temperament and type but also new bloodlines. We DNA test all breeding pairs and offer a one year health guarantee.
The Pixiebob head should be an inverted pear shape with the nose/mouth and chin creating a diamond.
