Our Japanese Bobtails

About Cat-Chi Cats

Cat-Chi Cats is a cattery that specializes in breeding the Japanese Bobtail (JBT for short). We established the Cat-Chi Cats Cattery in 1998. All of our cats are CFA Registered.

Japanese Bobtails are active, athletic cats who are small to medium in size, and weigh between 6 to 9 pounds.  They combine the reflexes and intelligence of a breed that has survived by its wits for centuries, with the elegance and grace so prized by the culture in which it evolved. Find out what makes a good Japanese Bobtail; it's more than just the bunny tail!

Check out our kittens and cats for sale. We nearly always have a kitten or a retired cat available. When possible, we try to have pets altered prior to leaving our cattery. For females who are too young for surgery when they are adopted, we have a strict spay/neuter agreement with pet kittens. 

You can also see some of our past and present cats in our Gallery of Cats.

History and Legend

Did you know that the Japanese Bobtail cat has been around for at least a thousand years? Learn the origin of this breed in Siam and India and how it migrated to Japan.

You often see a Maneki Neko, a cat statue with one paw raised, at Japanese restaurants. Find out more about these good luck charms, and then take a look at our Maneki Neko collection.

Here are some of our favorite links, including other Japanese Bobtail breeders, cat-related merchandise, Manx breeders (the Manx is a tailless cat that is in no way related to the Japanese Bobtail.; these links are for comparison), cat fancier organizations, feline rescue, and veterinary information.
