Kurilean Bobtail is a very little-known breed of cat, which was recognized by FIFe only in 2004. Kurileans are a natural breed of cat and therefore other breeds are not used in the breeding. They are usually healthy, friendly, communicative and playful cats, completely loyal to their owners.
The Kurilean Bobtail is a well-muscled cat, compact in appearance with a lively expression, strong legs, a deep chest and a rising back topped by an elegant, “pom-pom” tail. The fur of a Bobtail, whether longhaired or shorthaired, must be soft, pleasant to the touch, with a sufficient proportion of undercoat.
The head is trapezoidal, with a wide face. Eyes are far apart and slightly tilted, ears medium-sized, jaw is strong with a well-developed chin. The tail is composed of one or more angles or curves or a combination of them, the length is 3-8 cm according to the standard.
