Sidney the domestic cat. Shhh! Don't let her hear you call her that.Common Name: Domestic Cat, House Cat

Kingdom: Animalia

Phylum: Chordata (Vertebrata)

Class: Mammalia

Order: Carnivora

Family: Felidae

Genus: Felis

Species: catus

Misc.:One of the most popular pets of all times, there is currently more than 100 million animals in existence worldwide. Humans spend more than $1.5 billion dollars per year feeding their feline companions, and more than $200 million per year on cat litter!

There are more than 30 different breeds of domestic cat and it is believed that all originated from the African Wildcat. Domestication is thought to have occurred more than 4000 years ago in Egypt, and originally occurred for religious purposes.

The expression that most aptly describes the difference between the canine companion versus the feline companion is “My dog thinks he’s human, my cat thinks he’s god”.

Listen to Domestic Cat InfoSize and Appearance: Almost impossible to describe, the domestic cat comes in a wide variety of colors and coat lengths. There are longhaired breeds like the Persian, and cats with virtually no hair like the Mexican Hairless. There are even cats with almost no tail at all like the Manx cat, or very short legs like the Munchkin. They can be as varied in size, ranging from 5 pounds all the way up to more than 20.

Habitat: Everywhere, mostly associated with human dwellings. Sadly, due to the irresponsibility of man, there are now feral populations of domestic cats everywhere.

Distribution: Worldwide.

Reproduction and Offspring: Females tend to come in heat 3-4 times per year, and after a gestation of 63-66 days they produce litters of 1-8 kittens, most commonly 3-5. They weigh 3-4 ounces at birth, and their eyes open between 7-20 days. They learn to walk around 9-15 days, eat solid food at 4 weeks and are weaned between 8-10 weeks. Independence is around 6 months, with sexual maturity being reached around 10-12 months.

Social System and Communication: Solitary by nature, yet in areas with abundant food sources, they establish a social organization and hierarchies and tolerate each other quite well.

Hunting and Diet: Outdoor and feral cats prey on a variety of small mammals and birds, including mice, rats, squirrels, gophers, moles, shrews, hares and rabbits. As for birds, they prefer sparrows, starlings, robins, doves, and ground nesting birds like grouse, quail and pheasants. Cats will also include grass and other vegetation as part of their diet. Fish, insects and domestic chickens may also be taken.


If it's an older dog

by Moosewood

It may already have a jistory of aggression with cats. Puppies raised with cats (esp goldens) usually do well with them. It helps to have a laid back cat that doesn't freak and run as that stirs up the prey drive. My boxers live with 2 cats (an old persian and fat mulazy munchkin) and other than occasionally annoying them trying to get attention, they leave them alone. They, however, were raised with these cats, and both know their boundries. From the described injuries, the dog bit the cat many times (is the cat declawed?). That's not good. You are at high risk of it happening again, especially if you don't know what the trigger for the attack was

Munchkin Cats: Allergens and travel?

I'm considering getting a munchkin cat, but most of the sites I find have little or no information on the cat itself, only the history. I'm allergic to cat dander, so I was wondering how munchkins stack up against other cats in terms of dander, and measures to be taken to hinder dander. Also, I travel back and forth from an upstate NY house to an NYC one on about a bi-weekly basis. Would this affect the cat?

There are very few hypoallergenic cats as far as breeds , The Siberian and the Rex are you're best bet , My self we breed the Siberians and all of our sales go to people that are allergic and out of two dozen sales there has only been one kitten a family has had mild problems with .

Munchkin Cats: Is it harmful, or not?

I read somewhere that their legs actually make jumping and running harder and that its harmful. But then i read somewhere else that they are very fast cats despite their short legs and that it isn't harmful even though its a mutation.
Does anyone know if its actually harmful or not?
Thanks!

While their short legs do not them to jump as high or run as fast as an average cat, they can still run and jump with the same vigour and enthusiasm as an average cat. Also munchkins are no more prone to health problems than the average cat..

What type of Munchkin cat?? (with picture)?

I love munchkin cats but there is this certain variation (right word?) that I think is so adorable but I cannot find its name anywhere! media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lgoyd0GPvE1qaj3gn.jpg
There it is :) hope the link works, please help me x

Your link doesn't work. I'm betting it's the same tiny kitten that's in a video from Japan - extremely short legs, fluffy? This one so that would be a BACKYARD BREEDER Munchkin though very unlikely it's a registered Munchkin it's just being sold as one. The breed standard is most definitely not for dwarfism that extreme. But in Japan - where the priority is cute with NO regard for what it means to the animals - you see this a lot. Extra short legs, extra small kittens. It's sickening, actually, as probably so many animals die because these idiots don't have a clue what they're doing.
