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.
That is, if you call small rodents big prey! Though they themselves are on the short side, Munchkin cats still have the instinct to chase after mice and the few animals smaller than themselves.
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!
Munchkin cats get their unique leg size from a genetic mutation in their breeding. Don’t let the term faze you- they’re really more miracles than anything!
Can’t Keep a Good Cat Down
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.
Part of a Big, Furry Family
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.
The Wizard of Fuzz
Munchkins get their name from the short people in the movie Wizard of Oz, so they are based on stars themselves.
Big Heart, Little Body
While Munchkins are energetic and hunters like other felines, nothing leaves them feline so good as nuzzling their owner.
