Tiny Cats with Huge Hunting Prowess

Diamonds may be a girl’s best friend, but cats are definitely the cutest, and few can match how adorable the Munchkin cat is. This breed of cat still has the intelligence and confidence of other felines in the family, but its tiny legs are what give it such an enormous cute factor.  While they aren’t able to jump and climb as well as their longer limber friends, they still have a swagger and moves all their own. But here are some other things about Munchkin cats you might not know.

Ooooh Shiny!

Munchkin cats have an affinity for small, shiny objects, and not only will they hunt down mice but also little baubles to hide away and play with later. So if you’re missing some shiny coins or jewelry, it may be your Munchkin!

While Munchkin cats have been around since the 30’s, they had their numbers drastically reduced during the Second World War. They made a comeback in the 80’s, though, and can be found plentifully today.

In the beginning, cat experts were hesitant to name Munchkins as an official breed of cat because they were worried the breeding would lead to hip and back problems. Eventually, they were made an official breed with their kitty cousins.

Munchkins get their name from the short people in the movie Wizard of Oz, so they are based on stars themselves.

While Munchkins are energetic and hunters like other felines, nothing leaves them feline so good as nuzzling their owner.
