    Articlegeneral cat adviceFriday 30 September 2011

    The Munchkin is a cat breed created by a naturally occurring genetic mutation that results in cats with abnormally short legs. The shortness of their legs does not interfere with their running and leaping abilities. The gene responsible has been compared to the one that give Welsh Corgis, Basset Hounds and Dachshunds their short stature. Munchkins do not suffer from the many spinal problems that are typically associated with those canine breeds as cats' spines are physically different from dogs. Munchkin Cats are generally described as sweet-natured, playful, people-oriented cats. They are outgoing, intelligent and respond well to being handled. They are very playful and outgoing; they don't let their shorter legs hinder them from doing things that other cats do.
