About Our Rescue Group:

FosterCat's mission is to develop and sustain an organization to provide temporary foster care for cats and kittens in private homes until permanent homes can be found.

Our Adoption Process:

We currently foster cats from the Western PA Humane Society and from some outside sources. All cats are tested for FELV, vaccinated (including rabies), treated for fleas, earmites and parasites and spayed/neutered PRIOR to adoption. All cats are placed at local PetsMart stores for adoption.

Potential adoptor must fill out a questionnaire. Landlords are contacted to make sure renter is allowed pets. If adoptor already owns animals, vet is contacted to make sure all cats/dogs are spayed/neutered and are up to date on vaccinations including leukemia testing. No declaw is permitted and all cats must be kept indoors. A home visit is performed prior to adoption to meet potential adoptors.

Adoption fee is $75 for all cats/kittens.

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 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.
