WELCOME and meet the Bobtail cats
We have been raising the rare Cosmic Bob Tail cats since 2004.
Our Bobtails are registered Tennessee Bobtails, a developing breed with the Rare Exotic Feline Registry(REFR).
We only have a few litters a year, and they are indeed a very special branch of the American Bobtail breed.
Every kitten is loved and handled from the day it is born
Excellent hunters, vermin beware
A bobtail breed in development is the Tennessee Bobtail....Scattered throughout the Southern USA are a variety of bobtailed cats...with tails ranging from rumpy to full and bodies ranging from the cobbier high-rumped Manx-type to a more svelte build as a result of random breeding...They come in any fur-length, colour and pattern with tabby/spotted preferred.
At present, foundation Tennessee Bobtails are being registered with REFR. These are random-bred natural bobtail cats that meet the desired type. Cats meeting the Tennessee Bobtail type and belonging to a known bobtailed breed are being used to help establish bloodlines. ...
Feral bobcats, Lynx rufus, inhabit most of North America, from as far south as the Florida Everglades and northern Mexico north into Canada. The bobcat is somewhat larger than domestic cat breeds. It is a powerful animal with long legs and a muscular body and is noted for its short tail. While the Desert Lynx today is a completely domstic cat*, it is bred to resemble the bobcat. Through generations of selective breeding with different breeds of domestic cats, the breed has incorporated many characteristics similar to those of the bobcat. Desert Lynx are medium in length with longer hind legs, and toes may be tufted. They are very alert, intelligent cats. Males are larger than females and slower to mature. These cats come in both long and short hair.
RagaBobs are a cross of Ragdoll cats and Bobtail cats.
Most of our Ragabobs are F1 RagaBobs,
meaning each parent is a registered Bobtail or registered Ragdoll. We also have F2 Ragabob kittens, a continuation of the two breeds blended together with a patchwork of perfection!
Since all our cats are from foundation parents there is a diverse array of characteristics from each breed. When you pick out a kitten we will tell you what traits it has from each breed. For instance some have the agility of a bobtail and the level of puppy dog affection of the Ragdolls.
Some are clumsier like Ragdolls and some super duper affectionate like a Ragdoll while others very affectionate but less "in your face".
