Bobtail Schwarkatze

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.


Persian Schwarkatze

A subspecies that is exclusively domestic, and has been bred from long-haired, wild Schwarkatzen.
