The Scyth Toybob breed was developed in the Ural regions of Russia. The "Toybob" name was derived from two words, where
"Toy" describes a small sized cat breed and "Bob" refers to a bobbed tail. The word "Scyth" refers to the Ancient
Eurasian Scythian tribes that migrated to the northern regions of Russia and built rich modern cultures.
The Scyth Toybob is a small cat that is typically no bigger than a 3-6 month old kitten of a normally developed domestic cat.
They have semi-cobby, strong, muscular bodoes with short bobbed tails, consisting of several kinked vertebrae.
The cats small size and bobbed tails are due to spontaneous mutation(s) in feral cats native to Russia. The Scyth Toybobs have
pleasent temperament and are affectionated while also obidient to their human companions. Despite their small
size, they are very active, playful and agile.


Jowls in adult males, males smaller than females, longer necks in kittens, white
