According to many it is a real "talking" cat that modulates sounds as if it wanted to build real sentences.

And this intelligence manifests itself under various aspects, not only because of its very personal language that it creates by modulating the meow as it pleases.

The Japanese Bobtail has a large learning ability and it is as simple to teach him games and tricks as if he were a dog.

So much so that he is an experienced "retriever" that could spend hours bringing back the objects we throw at him.

As if that were not enough it is easy to teach him to walking on a leash and will be happy to walk with us in the open air.

This cat also quickly learns to recognize the sound of its name so be prepared for a cat that comes to your feet whenever you call it!

However, the intelligence of the Japanese Bobtail also translates into little pranks that will leave you speechless.

Can understand how certain objects work, for example it doesn't take long to learn how a door opens or a counter.

So be careful to leave it unattended because it could sneak without your knowledge into the "off limits" rooms where it should never enter.

Not all cats and animals in general are suitable for the little ones of the house and we could risk running into unpleasant accidents.

With the Japanese Bobtail we can rest assured, it is a cat sociable and active who loves children especially.

It is natural that they are his favorite humans, given the predisposition of both to the game and to pranks.

Together they form a real team of urchins, so rather than making sure they get hurt, we should keep an eye on them so that they don't damage the house!

The constant search for attention leads the Japanese Bobtail to always prefer those who are willing to spend a lot of time with them.

Of course the winners are the children, always active and tireless. Virtually the perfect owners.

The Japanese Bobtail and other animals

If with humans he is sociable and friendly, the Japanese Bobtail does not contradict himself either with other animals domestic.

He is able to make friends with everyone, even with dogs that often don't get along very well with our feline friends.

He never sees other animals as a threat even if they are much larger in size.

For the Japanese Bobtail it makes no difference: whether it is human, cat or dog it is enough to spend a lot time together to play and pamper yourself!

But beware of small animals, such as rodents. Let's not forget that historically the Japanese Bobtail was born as a "hunting" cat.

It really had the job of killing mice and rats that in the past infested the streets and countryside of Japan.

If we add to this its natural predatory instinct, we can say that coexistence with one of these small animals is not exactly ideal.
