Scottish Fold Munchkin kittens for sale

The Munchkin is one of nature’s more unique looking cats. Although they are not recognized by all registries, they are easy to identify by their unusual leg length. It is a small to medium sized cat, usually weighing 5 – 9 pounds. They have a thick body that is somewhat rectangular in shape. They are neither as slender as the oriental breeds nor as compact as breeds like the Persian and Manx. They have moderate bone and are well muscled, but not bulky, cats. The tail is of moderate length, tapering at the tip. It is not thick.

The defining feature of the Munchkin is its leg length. The legs are much shorter than those of other cats. The same mutation that led to short legged basset hounds and dachshunds is responsible for the similarly foreshortened legs of the Munchkin. The rear legs can be slightly longer than the front legs but both sets are much shorter than normal.

The head is a modified wedge with rounded edges. The ears are of moderate size and, in the longhaired Munchkins, can have lynx tips. The eyes are walnut shaped and wide set, giving the cat an alert expression. They can be any color and it does not have to correlate with coat color.

There are two coat varieties in the Munchkin – the shorthaired and the longhaired. In the shorthaired variety, the coat is short to medium in length with a plush texture and glossy, lustrous appearance. There is a moderate amount of undercoat and the coat is weather resistant and resilient. In the longhaired variety, the coat is semi-long. It is silky and flows along the body. The tail is plumy and the coat is heavier on the ruff and britches. All colors are permissible in both coat varieties.
