Kurilian bobtail cats come from a string of islands in the far east of Russia. Unlike other tailless cats, the Kurilian actually has a short but kinked tail. These playful cats love to hunt and play in the water. They are not very popular in North America and are present mainly in Russia and other parts of Europe.
