I am in love with this breed of cat called munchkin. They are a newer breed mixing regular cat breeds with the short legged variant and you get a munchkin. I love Persian and Himalayans and they are also munchkin breeds.
I became aware of them watching the Animal Planet show Too Cute-- show about different litters of kittens. Another cat is not in my future right now but when it is I plan on checking the munchkin cats out.
According to what I have read so far, these cats can still climb and are healthy just have short legs.
To find out more you can Google munchkin cats and also breeders can be found in ads in Cat Fancy magazine.
Have a Pink day!
