A subspecies that is exclusively domestic, and has been bred from standard wild Schwarkatzen from Yurashia. They are based on the Japanese Bobtail cat.
Strong-willed and independent creatures, Bobtail Schwarkatzen are nevertheless highly affectionate to their owners. They aren't terribly high-strung, and are difficult to intimidate, making them excellent companions for children. They are quite active, however, and require lots of mental and physical stimulation.
