History of the origins of cat breeds: all you need to know about cats. History and origins

The Pixie-Bob is a recent breed of cat, which originated in the United States.
In 1985 in Washington State, breeder Carol Ann Brewer collects a lynx-like cat. She goes in search of another cat who looks similar, and eventually finds Keba and Maggie. This breeder allowed a mating between a polydactyl cat (number of fingers higher than the norm) and a small bobcat Bobcat, which gives birth to Pixie-Bob cats with a spotted coat.
They were officially recognized by TICA in 1998, an important American feline federation.
Your miniature lynx is strongly reminiscent of an atypical lynx.
