What Is A Munchkin ??

At the present time, the Munchkin appears to come in every sort of body type, head type and coat length. the only thing these cats have in common is their extremely short legs. Since the "gene pool" is unlimited, there are no clear guidelines as to what type the Munchkin will ultimately resemble. Some Munchkin breeders are mating to Persians, others to Siamese and still others to Abyssinians. At present it is not possible to present a picture of the ultimate type, apart from its distinctivly short legs.
The short legs do not seem to affect its climbing ability, but its jumping ability is limited by the shortness of the hind legs. Due to its lack of jumping abilities the Munchkin can find it very difficult to escape from fights with other animals. A Munchkin should therefore be an indoor only cat.
Since the Munchkin has so many different ancestors, its temperament will depend largely upon which cats are on its pedigree. As with any cat, the conditions under which it is raised and the amount of attention given during kittenhood are also factors in the temperament.
Munchkins have kitten-like personalities, and they keep their kittenish ways all their lives. They are very affectionate and love to be around adults, children, dogs and other cats. They never tire of human company and prefer to be with a companion or two rather than alone.
Munchkins also enjoy the company of other animals and adapt well to most circumstances. They are not aggressive cats, but are very social and out-going. Munchkins are very playful, they love to run, chase, climb and play with toys. When it comes to chasing, their short legs give them an advantage over cats with long legs. Those little legs allow them to scramble faster and corner sharper. They love to scurry after ping pong balls, mice on fishing poles and live bugs, if they get the opportunity.
This is the cat who may well be collecting all your little jewels and nicknacks, just like the Magpie, and hiding them under furniture. They readily accept a harness and leash and seem to enjoy taking their owners...

Friend of mine, otherwise sane human being, actually purchased munchkins from a breeder. I don't understand. I guess their supporters say they are like the "feline version of doxies" but really, the original munchkin cat was simply born with a genetic deformity, and they inbred that cat to create more. That's how most cat breeds are created.
Cat breeds and dog breeds are fundamentally different in that each purebred cat, from Scottish folds to Persians, really are DSH/DLH cats with a genetic mutation that happened along the way. So in a way, just a "mutant" :-) Whereas if you take your average stray mix dog, that dog is a mix of various breeds
