Mekong Bobtail Cats
Breed Rating (3 Reviews)
The Mekong Bobtail is named after the Mekong, the river that flows through China, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam. Sporting a short tail, it originated due to a natural, random gene mutation that cropped up over a large area of Southeast Asia.
The modern Mekong Bobtail was developed in Russia as an experimental breed, and is now widely recognized as a standalone breed.
Like the stubby-tailed Manx, the Mekong Bobtail is athletic and agile. They enjoy vigorous play sessions involving climbing or jumping, and match this restlessness with a gentle and affectionate nature.
Comes in all self colors with a pointed pattern.

Lovely cat - Caroline,
We rescued a Mekong bobcat kitten about ten weeks old. It had been dropped off. At a dairy farm across the street from us. We thought it was Siamese until we learned otherwise on the internet. The kitten was painfully thin but now is looking good.the humane society said we had a female but turns out his male organs had not descended yet . He is very sociable, loyal, and athletic. A very entertaining pet to have. And he came. To us for free, and he brought us luck. How fortunate we are,
We have a cupple of Mekong Bobtail male and female. - Lalage,
We took our pair of Mekong Bobtails with the idea of doing a small home breeding. Indiana Denise comes from Palermo in Italy and Marcus from New Jersey US. They are young and have not yet had litters. they are a splendid breed. We have 10 cats, the Mekong have a calm and playful character and resemble dogs in nature. They are affectionate, they purr, we fell in love.
