Munchkin

Description / History

The Munchkin is short- legged (like the Dachshund dog), the result of a natural mutation. 

It is one of the newest breeds of cat; Munchkins were first exhibited in 1991 and was accepted for NBC (new breed or color) status in 1995. It is still considered experimental and is not widely recognized. 

Munchkins are sociable and affectionate cats. Despite the short legs, Munchkins can run, climb, and jump -- though not as high as their long-legged cousins. Their movements are described as being similar to that of ferrets.

Weight

8-10 lbs.

Associations

The Munchkin has championship status in AACE, Catz-NZ and TICA. It is currently accepted by UFO under NBC (new breed or color) status.
