Munchkin Cat Breed

The Munchkin Cat has only been recognised for about twenty years or so and short legged kittens are formed by a naturally occurring gene that creates the characteristic short legs of the Munchkin.

The Munchkin is a healthy breed with not having any common ailments due to its size and so lives a long and happy life.

They are very playful cats and love human company, in fact almost demand it as they love being the centre of attention. Due to their playful nature, it can get them into trouble especially having such short legs as they are unable to escape easily. For this reason it is normally recommended to have them as house pets where they’ll be safer from larger prey.

Where can you find Munchkin Kittens for sale?

Munchkin cats are highly sought after so it can be difficult finding a breeder. The best place to look is on the internet at the carious cat breeding sites available and can cost around $600.

When you go to the breeder to look at the kittens, do also pay attention to the parents. To have a friendly, sociable kitten the parents should also be friendly and take an interest in you, but also look out for nervousness as this can be passed on.
When you have decided to have a kitten, do make sure it has been litter trained and had its full course of inoculations.

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
