The Munchkin cat is a mutation with unusually short legs. Controversy surrounds the breed because some believe them to have a genetic "defect", however, the reality is that these seem to be rather healthy and happy cats with no specific health issues associated with the breed. They are not only generally hardy but surprisingly agile as well, able to leap and run, play and pounce with ease. The physical appeal is hard to deny, but these little cats are known for their sweet, people-loving nature as well. Recent crosses with other pure-breeds has led to some fascinating varieties.Munchkin cat Crossed with the Sphinx you get a Minskin, crossed with the LaPerm is a Skookum, crossed with a Selkirk Rex is a Lambkin, crossed with a Bengal is a Genetta. There are surely more varieties to come, since the infusion of new blood into the gene pool is required to keep the Munchkin healthy. Breeding two standard Munchkins together can result in high birth mortality.


All domestic cat breeds were developed with a certain look and personality in mind.

Cool Cat Facts...
All modern Munchkins trace back to one single cat - a short-legged pregnant female found under a pickup truck in Louisiana in 1982. Her name was Blackberry and her short-legged kittens were originally called "babylegs".

I have a munchkin. The disposition

by countreeprincess

Varies from cat to cat but the ones I've been around have been very lovey and playful. They tend to stay "kittenish" longer and they do NOT have any trouble doing anything a cat with long legs does. They can have the common health problems of most cats and may(mine didn't/don't)sometomes have later life arthritis/joint disorders. Cattery cats from bad catteries also have a higher risk of URI,FIP and other "communal" diseases.
When you find a breeder/s look for cleanliness,check bloodlines and breeding records,ask to see vet records/tests and see where the cats are kept(i.e not caged unless in season) ask for references from other show people and buyers

Munchkin kittens???

Anybody else disgusted with this mutated cat breeding that has been going on? I actually just found out about them today. Note the prices for these kittens.


http://www.munchkins.com/

It is a shame, the kittens are the ones suffering, and they will have health problems, I saw 3 of these at a Louisville, Ky show last year. they were cute as buttons ,but the legs, poor babies.....no length......but the lady there was showing how versatile they are, and even with shorty legs, those little guys can jump high and they did not fall back, were very sturdy..

but, one poster is right, as long as they are bred, the people will buy them.....and they are a legal registered breed......

the price, bet the link you furnished, they sell like hot…

Where do you find a munchkin kitten to breed?

Serious answers only!! And which is better for breeding, a female or male?
Yes you need a male and female cat to breed, but can't breed two munchkin cats. If you don't know what a munchkin cat is do not answer and don't tell me about how you think its wrong.

The International Cat Association (TICA) accepts the Munchkin for registration. Why not look for a registered breeder and ask to be mentored. Breeding is hard work, a VERY expensive hobby, and can be difficult. With a good mentor -- or two or three! -- you'll be on the track to success.

Do I have to breed a munchkin cat with another munchkin cat to get munchkin kittens?

I adopted a kitten with regular length legs from a litter of munchkins. I understand that achondroplasia is an autosomal dominant gene and I would like her to have a litter that contains munchkins. Do I need to breed her with a munchkin who has the short leg trait or can I breed her to a regular cat to end up with munchkin kittens?

It depends on each cat whatever breed your cat is you might want to breed it with another pure or pedigree you dont want problems developing in kittens

Kitten Breed???

I was wondering if it is possible to not know anything about a kitten when selling it? I got this kitten in April and it's abnormally small. Not skinny but just a small bone structure. When I show her to people they say it should be illegal to have a kitten as small as mine. She has very short legs and shes kinda bullegged in the front. She has a tabby colouring with spots on her belly.Shes also got these big bat ears. Even the vet says shes not sure of the breed. When I look at…

Your link's not working. She could be just the "runt" of the litter. Nothing abnormal, just a small kitty. I'm guessing she's a mixed breed with some Siamese in her (I have a Siamese with a "rowly" growl).

Here's a couple sites you can search for adoptable kittens in your area.

You can make a difference in a kittens life instead of supporting breeders and petshops =) Also try your local shelter, this time of year they ALWAYS have kittens!
