About Our Rescue Group:

We are a small group of animal loving women and men who used to rescue cats individually then one day joined together to pool our resources and hold joint adoption events on week-ends. We do it because we love animals and feel a sense of responsibility toward companion animals, who are totally dependent on humans for their survival and well being, and who are too often betrayed and abandonned by their human caretakers. We are involved in TNR, when we find feral kittens we tame them and put them up for adoption. WE provide spay/neuter services to low-income families unable to pay for those services, if there are kittens in those families we place them in our adoption program. We feed several feral cat colonies. We raise funds to pay for vet care for injured or sick cats.

Come Meet our Pets:

Every Sunday from 12:00 to 4:00 p.m. and the fourth Saturday of every month at Petco. During week days we may invite potential adopters to meet a cat at our homes, but we require that they fill out the application form first.

Our Adoption Process:

Applicant fills out application form and provides complete pet history. If renter, must have proof of pet deposit. We call the vet for a vet reference. Must commit to keep the cat inside at all times and not declaw the cat. If kitten, must commit to take the kitten to our vet clinic for spay/neuter surgery on day of appointment. Must sign contract that specifies those requirements. First month is trial period, applicant can return cat for any reason, and Cats' Angels can take the cat back for any reason within one month after adoption. We deliver the cat to its new home and do a home visit at that time. Adoption fee is $125 and covers all veterinary work.

Comments about munchkins and breeding in general

by grey_again

I was going to post this as a response to some cat pics below, but it really should be a separate topic.
Let me start off by saying that I understand that everyone loves their pet and I'm not criticizing anyone for owning whatever type of domestic animal they have. However, this munchkin cat thing bugs me every time it comes up, because ... (launch into rant)
Whenever new dog-mix "breeds" (puggles, labradoodles, etc.) are mentioned, people go ballistic about how these are just mutts and breeding them is incredibly irresponsible.
In fact, if they are properly bred (health and temperament accounted for, new homes properly screened), I don't see that it's so evil to try to...

Munchkin cat.............?

Do munchkin cats have bad promblems because of the way they were bred? i dont have one, i hav a normal cat, but if munchkin cats have breathing or lung problems , why would someone breed them and tourture such a cute little animal. they are adorable though <3

As any severly altered breed of anything - don't bother. You're only asking for trouble.

Take a domestic feline as it was created and stay with that.

Munchkin Cats?

Does anyone have one of these cats? If so, what is your cats personality like and where did you get it from?

I'm thinking about getting one, but not sure where to start looking
I'd want to buy a cat because i LIKE munchkin cats and would prefer to own one, rather than yet another regular ol shelter cat like the 4 I already have

I looked into getting one but they end up having way too many health problems and dont live nearly as long as average sized cats. theyre absolutely adorable but just have too many problems for me....if I had the money to put into all the medical bills i would get one... i just dont have that kind of cash.

Munchkin cats?

I looking for a munchin kitten in orlando FL, does anybody know is there a breeder in Orlando, FL? thanks

I would do a google search for Munchkin cat breeders. Or get a Cat Fancy Magazine they have Munchkin cat breeders advertisments in the back of the magazine. Be careful buying Munchkins. They have inherited Heart problems that come with the minature legs. 70% of Munchins born with the dwarfed legs have weak or enlarged hearts. Its just a thing that runs in the genetics because of the severe inbreeding amoung close relatives to get the dwarfed legs. Be sure they are fully vetted and if they arent i would go right to the vet after you buy one and have his heart checked.
Here is just…

Munchkin cats?

What will you get when you breed munchkin cats with siamese. Will you get muchkins that look like siamese of a mixture... no smart xx answers please
I am not breeding....JUST CURIOUS
DO NOT ANSWER WITH DON'T BREED CATS..I AM NOT BREEDING JUST STUDING GENEOLOGY

The munchkin breed has a genetic disorder that causes the short legs, there would be a chance that this gene could be passed down to some of the kittens but not necessary all of them. Siamese breeds tend to throw their color to their off springs, they may not have the bold coloring like the parent but similarly markings

Munchkin Cat?

I know this isn't recognized as a real breed in the largest cat registries and many others, i was just wondering cats with this mutation, do they have any other health problems besides the short legs? and yes prone to back problems - but anything else?

I have a munchkin persian,and she has not had any health problems.I was not aware they were more prone to disease than other cats.

FYI there are munchkin persian,they have shorter legs,and act more kitten like throughout their life.
As usual,someone gets a "top contributor" badge and they think they know it all.
