About the Kurilian Bobtail

Kurilian Bobtail cats can be short or semi-long-haired and have a very friendly, balanced and peaceful character. They have excellent health and a very well-balanced nature with a trusting and outgoing personality.

It's not easy to make them angry and they are well adapted to any environment. They get on very well with children, dogs and other cats.
