From Petfinder: The Japanese Bobtail make outstanding companions. They’re curious, bold, intelligent, and alert, and easily adjust to new people, situations, and animals, making them easy cats to show. Bobtails are active, but not annoyingly so. Their play is interactive and endearing. They want to be involved with their human companions and are more than willing to lend a paw when you need it. Since the Bobtail was a common street cat for so long, it is likely that somewhere along the bloodline they acquired the recessive gene for long hair. Also, the gene responsible for the pom-pom tail is a simple recessive. Do any of you cat owners out there have a Japanese Bobtail?
