Hi! 😀 Thanks for stopping by! You’ve found the ‘home’ of the Pixiebobs featured on ANIMAL PLANET’S CATS 101!! Just in case you haven’t found out yet, Pixie bobs are a domestic breed of cat bred to resemble the bobcat. No captive bobcats are used in my breeding program. Although my cats may LOOK wild, they are DNA tested/cleared negative for wild blood.
I hope you’re able to find what you’re looking for. If there is anything I can help you with, please let me know, ok? Here’s a little about me and my philosophies.
I’ve always liked cats, but Pixiebobs are above and beyond the BEST 🙂 Besides liking their rugged, wild look, I was enamored with “The Legend” of a bobcat mating with a barn cat…. My breeding years started when my boyfriend’s Sheltie had puppies. After we were married, I bred Shelties for about 8 years. But, oddly enough, my CATS were the ones that had really brought us together! He had agreed to keep my kitties for awhile, when I didn’t have a place for them. Of course I had to go check on them… 😉 My favorite husband was also the one who suggested I breed “those cat’s your aunt’s sister breeds”. Little did he realize the journey that ensued….
Cat breeding is not something to be ventured into lightly as it’s a big commitment of time, love and energy. Life has not been the same ever since! I was fortunate and blessed to have the Breed’s Founder, Carol Ann Brewer as my friend and mentor. Carol was available for dumb questions and even “middle-of-the-night-what-do-I-do” phone calls. I would not be here without her!!! My husband should be elevated to sainthood…. I’ve made some wonderful friends along the way, some of whom are also Pixiebob Breeders. My husband, our 2 kids and granddaughter are honored members of the Socialization Committee 🙂
Carol passed away peacefully Sunday morning June 5, 2011. Carol touched many lives with her beloved Breed, the Pixiebobs. But most of all, she touched the lives of those of us who were blessed to know her as a Friend. Her kindness, generosity and love of God was endless. We will deeply miss her and she will always be in our hearts. We can just imagine her face when she’s reunited with Pixie in heaven :o) F.T.L.O.C. (For the love of Carol) Until we meet again, dear friend….

THEN they came to my home to film some of my other cats and kittens, along with my kids and granddaughter. I don’t think it gets much better than that!!
