About Our Shelter:

The Cat House is a non-profit, no-kill shelter in Lincoln, Nebraska. We are a limited admission feline-only shelter. We began operations in 1998 to provide an alternative to traditional shelters. We only euthanize for pain and suffering, never to make space for more adoptable cats. We are an all-volunteer group, with no paid staff. We rent shelter facility, in addition to space at our local PetsMart. We exist entirely on adoption fees and donations. If you would like to adopt a cat, please see either the cats listed at this website or at our website. If you would like to donate to help pay the rent or the utilities, you may do so by credit card via Pay Pal on our website or send a check to our address. Local volunteers are always needed and welcomed. If you would like to volunteer, please fill out an application on our website.

Come Meet our Pets:

Our adoption center is open Tuesday and Thursday from 6-8 p.m. and Sunday from 1:30 - 4:00. We are located at 1935 Q street, Lincoln Nebraska. We also have cats available at PetsMarts 5200 N. 27th St location in Lincoln.

Our Adoption Process:

Our adoption process consists of completion of an application, followed by an interview. All applications and interview results are reviewed by our board. An adoption contract is completed at the time of adoption. Our adoption fee is currently $100 for kittens under 8 months old and $80 for cats 8 months to 7 years old If the cat is age 7 or older or considered to have special needs, or if the adopter is age 60 or older, the fee is reduced to $60. The fee for the second or subsequent cat or kitten adopted at the same time or within three months is half the usual amount. All cats and kittens have been spayed or neutered, tested for feline leukemia virus, microchipped, and are up-to-date on rabies and RCP ("distemper") vaccinations. To help facilitate adoptions we adopt only within a 200 radius from of Lincoln Nebraska and we cannot ship cats.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a cat or kitten versus getting cats for sale or kittens for sale from a cat breeder? When someone is breeding kittens, they are creating new cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of cat or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a cat for sale from a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a cat or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.

"History
Munchkin is a naturally occurring, domestic cat breed characterized by unusually short legs. These short-legged cats have been documented in 1930s in England. But World War II took its toll on the cat and threatened the extinction of this species. These cats were rediscovered in Europe in 1980s. Breeders undertook measures to conserve this breed and since then this breed has flourished. Recently it has been accepted as breed by TICA. "

Why do people breed deformed cats?

Cats weren't meant to have no hair, have folded ears, or no tail, or short legs. It's not natural. No animal-loving person could possibly breed for what is clearly a deformity.

Any opinions?
You fail to realize they carry a high risk of illnesses. They must be very, very carefully bred in order to avoid these, and even then the risk is high. They're cute of course, but it is, in the end, a deformity that should not be bred.
Just because it is a natural mutation does not make it okay. If a human was born with no limbs, is it natural? Of course. But it is still…

Many of the things you are calling "deformed" are harmless, natural mutations. The Manx cat is a naturally occurring breed from the Isle of Man. Spynx and Peterbalds are also naturally occurring - and harmless. The Spynx, other than being cold, is a very hardy cat. The Scottish fold is another naturally occurring mutation - as is the long haired gene! These breeds you site are not unhealthy, so you're really misinformed. They carry no higher risk of illness than any other breed or domestic short hair. What does a folded ear, for instance, have to do with healthy kidneys, or…

I need some tips on Minskin Cat Breed Stuff?

I want to buy a Minskin, and I already know pretty much everything about them. I was watching a Cats 101 and all the stuff about it matches what I need PERFECTLY! I just had a couple questions
FIRST if you know a breeder or can find some online please give me a link. I need one in California So please don't give me one from North Virginia I don't believe shipping animals is very nice...
ANYHOO
I also wanted to know about how much they cost. The average cost, and I know they're rare, so I just wanted to know their average price.
ALSO
If you are a Minskin…

I suggest you DO NOT buy an animal ever. You should always adopt from a shelter! The animal that are rescued are more loving and appreciative.
