Munchkin Cats for a good Price

The Munchkin Cat, Great Things Come in Small Packages!

Color

The TICA accepts the Munchkin Cat for show in all colors. This cat has many variations of color, and pattern, all of which are allowed and valued.

Handicapped Cat?

Hardly! When I first saw a picture of a Munchkin Cat, I thought, "Oh, that's GOT to be photo shopped!" But soon enough I found out that the Munchkin Cat was indeed an actual breed. Then, I thought "how barbaric to intentionally breed a handicapped cat just for the sake of cuteness". Oddly though, when I began my research for this page, I found myself relieved to discover that Munchkins are far from handicapped, and actually are very impressive little felines!

Here's what the TICA has to say about Munchkins:"Badgers, ferrets, otters, raccoons, and squirrels are just a few of the animals in the wild that have short legs to help them survive-some are diggers, some are climbers and, in the case of otters, some are swimmers, but their short legs have evolved to help their survival skills.

Dachshunds, Bassetts, and Corgis are a few of the dog breeds developed with short legs for specific purposes-Bassets are scent hounds and short legs put them closer to the scent while Corgis are herding dogs that need to turn on a dime, with rapid twists and turns to herd the animals in their charge.

munchkin-baby-by-TheaniMunchkins are the same as every other cat-except they have short legs, speed & exceptional cornering skills, and a great deal of love to offer their devoted owners." So in many ways the diminutive stature of these cats is more of an advantage than a disability!


Grooming

Grooming is easy. Shorthair Munchkins just need for their medium length plush, resilient all-weather coat to be combed once a week to help remove loose dead hair. Combing the Longhaired Munchkin's semi-long silky all weather coat twice a week will help to prevent tangles.

Personality

It's been said that to appreciate these bundles of energy, one has to know one. The incredible energy of these unique felines is second only to their great cornering speed. just like the sleek race cars they're said to resemble, Munchkins tend to stay low to the ground.

It's important to note that while they prefer the ground, they are perfectly capable of jumping. While others may initially feel as I did that this was a horribly deformed and handicapped cat, further investigation will reveal the munchkin to be a perfectly natural, happy little bundle of joy that has no sense of being limited in any way.

Appearance

Obviously, the Munchkin cat is a short-legged cat. According to the TICA, Its distinctive short legs developed from a "spontaneous autosomal dominant mutation" which has occurred throughout the history of domestic cats.

Munchkins come in an amazing array of colors and patterns. While their color and patterns may mimic some of the breeds they have been outcrossed to, The Munchkin is a unique breed and should never resemble a miniaturized version of another breed.

Cats and Couches

by dave001

I am looking to buy a new sofa/love seat and am curious how Munchkin and Precious will react.
Precious is de-clawed but Munchkin is not and will not be as long as I have him.
Munchkin does scratch things, but not a great deal. My current couches are covered with blankets - and I don't see him scratching them.
I'd expect to be getting new cats in the future, so am trying to figure out what couch fabric is best for cats that might scratch.
I think leather is out of my price range. I'm thinking of what I can only think might be called "traditional" fabric, and then micro fiber

FAQ

Price of Munchkin Cats in India..?

I wanna know if I can find a Munchkin Cat in Chennai.
And if yes I wanna know it's price.

Just Google TICA breeders Munchkin and where you live. I doubt it as that's a new breed with few breeders and only TICA that recognizes it. If you do find a breeder you're looking at a MINIMUM of a $1,000 for a kitten - more if they're the only breeder in the country.

Why you want to condone the breeding of dwarfism in cats? Are you not aware of all the horrible backyard breeders now trying to do this and ending up with horribly deformed cats that either end up euthanized or dumped at a shelter? I've seen some of them at the one I volunteer at. It's not pretty.

Munchkin cats, any info?

My biggest question, and the one that voids all of the others, is: Are munchkin cats in the same ball park as teacup whatever dogs? I've done some research, not at all extensive, but it seems to be nothing more than a simple mutation likened to people having green eyes or what made weanertype dogs the way they are.

And then: Where could I get one? I would have no issue trying shelters, but I am more than possitive that not one person in this area knows that cats have breeds beyong fluffy and standard.

And last but so far from least: How expensive? By the time…

I use to show cats for six years and talked to many Munchkin breeders at these shows.

The Munchkin is said to be the Daschund of the cat world. It has **nothing** to do with a diminutive/teacup-sized cat. Munchkins are an average size to large cat, with short legs. The biggest difference is that the Munchkin cat has none of the physical back problems associated with long-backed dogs. That's because cats in general are more limber then dogs.

You're right, the Munchkin breed came about as a natural mutation, just as Scottish Folds, and American Curls came…
