The Pixie-Bob is a medium to large cat in size; of substantial, tall and rangy type, but with great depth to the body. The shoulders and hipbones are very prominent, producing a rolling gait. The legs are long and heavy boned with large feet (fleshy toes). A polydactyl with 5 to 7 toes is accepted for championship exhibition. The coat is light brown spotted tabby, with heavy ticking and rufous colouring (warm tones), soft woolly and resilient to the touch.
The cat has a naturally short tail, which may extend only to the hock and may be flexible, knotted or kinked.
