The Japanese Bobtail is the “good luck” cat in Japan.  Its face is between wedge and round in structure with a long nose, large ears (pitched forward), and large, oval eyes.  A soft and silky coat that requires little grooming.  Bobbed, almost inflexible tail that can be sensitive.  A longhair version originated in 1993.
