New cat owner from Texas

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
I have two cats for the first time and I am getting so much enjoyment from them. The female came from a shelter and was thought to be a premature birth because of the very small size. I have learned that she has a dwarf gene and is not going to get any bigger. She is just under 5 lbs and is 1 year old. My other cat is just the opposite. He looks just like the pictures I have seen of Pixi-bobs. His mother is a feral domestic and father unknown. He looks just like a light colored bobcat with a regular tail. The vet listed him as a blond calico but his looks have changed now that he is about 8 months old. I will learn how to post a picture so I can get some input on this. He weighs 12 pounds already and can only eat canned and dry venison cat food. This took a while to figure out. He is very laid back and loves attention. He has never scratched or bitten me even while playing. I can't say so much for the other one, she is a playful cat that gives me these love nips and she plays hard. I just read today that a domestic and a bobcat do not make a Pixi-bob, but my cat looks exactly like the one on my cat magazine. My small cat is much more active than the bobcat and is vocal while the big one just chirps sometimes.

Does Sparkle look anything like my Dusty. If so, what kind of cat is it? I noticed they both have lines coming from thier eyes and similar faces. What kind of cat do you think Dusty could be? I know the mother which is a calico but lives in a remote area with one simease living near by and lot's of bobcats. Tim

I'm guessing he is a simease cross, he has big blue eyes eyes. Looks like maybe a fawn. He has light red ticking it seems in his fur. Or I could be mistaken, from the angle of the picture its hard to tell. Unless he's got a docked tail I highly doubt he's a bobcat. Unless he got a full grown tail from his mother. Again, I doubt It though. Overall he's S.T.U.N.N.I.N.G!

i'd say Dusty is a lynx point siamese mix... one of the lighter colors [not seal] because his eyes are lighter.
