Cat Breed of the Week: Japanese Bobtail

By June 5, 2013

Follow me on:

The Japanese Bobtail did indeed originate in Japan, and has been beloved in that country for centuries. In fact, the popular Maneki Neko (beckoning cat) is a ceramic image of the Japanese Bobtail.

They adjust well to travelling, dogs, and children. More importantly, they are strong, healthy cats with comparatively high disease resistance. Warau, pictured at right, is the epitome of the Japanese Bobtail.
