What a beautiful new cat breed: the Kurilian Bobtail, which is a natural breed of cat originating on the Russian Island of Sakhalin. It's now accepted to Championship status by TICA (The International Cat Association).
Kurilan Bobtail is commonly called “Lynx Cat” for a reason: in contrast to many breeds of cats, they have noticeably shorter bodies and long, strong legs in striking resemblance to the Siberian Lynx. Back legs are considerably longer making Kurilians the best jumpers out of all domesticated cats. With ease they leap up from the spot to the heights inaccessible to other cats. The cats are extremely intelligent, inquisitive and affectionate towards their owners.
