About LegendTales Pixie-Bobs
LegendTales cattery is a mother and daughter hobby cattery located in Gilbert, Arizona. We began showing, and later breeding cats in 1993. We are a TICA Outstanding Cattery and are involved in the Voluntary Responsible breeder Program. We have an open door policy and encourage you to come meet your kitten and it’s relatives in our home when its time for you to pick up your kitten! Our cats live in our home and are raised underfoot and overhead. We love to show off our cats and are very proud of them. The mom’s love to show off their kittens, often bringing them over for visitors to see.
Our kittens are delivered next to our bed and are raised in a bedroom that is designed just for young kittens. They live in the nursery until they are vaccinated and old enough to join the rest of the household. They are handled and played with constantly so that they look forward to human companionship. Our house is very busy with children and friends and the kittens are extremely social to all they meet. The children are often the ones helping the mother cats during delivery! Our goal is to raise kittens that are healthy and well socialized so that when they join your household they will walk in as if they own the place and will provide you with years of love and entertainment. We actively show and campaign our cats – our kittens look forward to the handling and traveling that goes along with showing.
We spay and neuter all kittens leaving our home. We do not and will not sell breeder cats to the general public. If the kitten is not going to be used in our program it will be placed in a pet home regardless of the quality, be it pet or top show cat. Our cats are raised as part of our family and our focus is on providing the best we can for each cat. When you visit our home you will see that no expense is spared when it comes to food, housing, enrichment and veterinary care.
They say that Pixie-Bobs are the dog of the cat world – we say that ours are the Golden Retriever of the cat world! Our cats love to play fetch, walk on leashes and some even know “roll over”. Our kittens are raised with our Golden Retriever to teach the pixies how a cat should act. They love to ride around on her back and chase her long fluffy tail!
Another fun Pixie trait is that they love to travel. My first Pixie-Bob, Tellie, traveled ten hours a week for two years with me and couldn’t get enough. They love to hang out on the back seat and watch the scenery – it is a special treat when the windshield wipers come on!!
We welcome families who have passed our application/screening process and have submitted a deposit to come to our home to pick up their kittens. We love meeting the families and seeing them meet their new kitten for the first time.
As of April 2020 we have had to change our policy of randomly allowing people into our home due to safety reasons and no-shows. We now require an approved application and non-refundable deposit. Once the desired kitten is ready to go, you are welcome to come meet/pick up your kitten. If you (or we) feel that the kitten is not a good match then the deposit can be transferred to a future kitten.
