Breed Review: Kurilian Bobtail (15 Pics)

Kurilian Bobtail is a short-tailed native of Russia. This breed attracts with a contrast: the appearance of the lynx gets along with the restlessness of the hare, and the dog’s devotion – with truly feline nobility.

#1 The Kurilian Bobtail is a breed that cannot be confused with another.

The reasons for this are a short, as if docked, tail and an uncharacteristic physique for cats. The character of the bobtail is no less remarkable. Calm, peaceful, and friendly - this is how their owners speak of these cats.

#2 The developed hunting instinct is another characteristic feature of the small “lynx”, so the representatives of the breed feel great in the countryside.

However, their reputation as skillful predators does not suffer in urban conditions: not a single annoying fly will escape the close attention of the Bobtail!

#3 In contrast to the outward resemblance to the wild and unapproachable lynx, the representatives of the breed are distinguished by genuine friendliness and affability.

This greatly accelerates the rapprochement of cats with new owners. The Kurilian Bobtail will not sit frowning under the chest of drawers and sniff in annoyance in response to your attempts to get him from his temporary hiding place. On the contrary: these animals love to communicate and are actively involved in joint games with family members. "Kurilians" are often called dogs in a feline body, because they gladly bring toys and balls thrown by the owner's dexterous hand.
