Kurilian-bobtail-cats-healthianaThe Kurilian Cat breed is considered one of the rare breeds. It is a bit similar to the American Bobtail breed, but more like the wild cats with slight physical difference in appearance, performance and temperament.

Like the American Bobtail breed, you can’t find identical tail shape/structure in the Kurilian Bobtail breed. Each tail is of different size and appearance, and that’s what gives these breeds their charm.




This breed actually exhibits a variety of coats of different traditional and exceptional colors. The coat is mainly silky and it varies between the short and the thick, long hair.
You can find double layer coats, which are thick and mostly not so long, and you can find a single coat that lays flat and feels quite silky. Some cats have a quite dense undercoat that makes the cat looks bigger like the wild cats.

The coat color is not related to the eyes, which are usually hazel, green, brown or golden brown. Some kittens are born with dark blue eyes; they usually have a dark coat, which is very uncommon in this breed. The breed exhibits many colors and swirls all over the cat’s body. They give a bright look among the white, silky background, and some cats have peach color with golden swirling, or dark grey with silver highlights.
