Piglet is a bit on the rare side. He is a Bengal, Tabby, and American Bobtail mix. Our vet thinks that his father who is a Bengal probably carries the bobtail gene in him and consequently one of his kittens looks like an American Bobtail.
It is interesting to note that the American Bobtail developed initially through natural selection. The foundation stock for this breed were feral domestic cats possessing a natural bobtail. Experienced breeders, using found domestic bobtails from all over the United States, worked together to produce the gorgeous American Bobtails we have today. One of the more intriguing phenomena of the breed is the striking resemblance of cats with no known common heritage, from thousands of miles apart, have born to one another. No recognized breed of pedigreed cat has been used in the development of the American Bobtail. American Bobtails are a very strong and healthy breed, experiencing no known genetic predisposition to health problems.
As these kittens are newly rescued they are too small to be spayed and neutered yet. But if you are interested in adopting please contact me to arrange a visit. It would be nice if we had a homes lined up for them when they do make weight and can get fixed. We have started their shots. At the time they are fixed they will also be micro-chipped and deworming will be complete by that time too. They are all kitty box trained.
Because these kittens are a Bengal mix they will not do well as single kittens in a home where they will be alone most of the day. They will need either another kitten or cat to play with. Bengal mix kittens are very athletic and energetic and need to play in ways humans can’t with them. They need to wrestle and chase.
