Munchkin x british blue x Scottish fold cat

Beautiful Munchkin girl with sweet personality. She is a rare breed crossed with British blue and Scottish fold (all the siblings were blue in colour with folded ears). She has short legs.   She has been microchipped, vaccinated, regularly treated with Advocate worm and flea treatment, fed with Royal canine all the time.   She is born on 14/11/20. Two and half year old now. Very affectionate, calm and gentle cat. Loves to sleep on your lap and on your bed. Never scratches or bites. Words can not justify her beautiful personality and cute little legs.   I have to let her go to another lovely family as I am going overseas to take care of my ill mother and can not take her with me. If you are interested to meet her, please text or email me.

Their mum’s are “Pandora/Pandy”, “Frankie” and “Miss Sox”. Pandy is a divinely beautiful tortoiseshell and white Purebred short legged Munchkin, Frankie is an exceptionally gorgeous solid black Purebred short legged Munchkin and Miss Sox is a truly elegant black and white longhaired Purebred long legged Munchkin… We also have our mum Dwilah who is a truly delightful seal (chocolate) point Purebred Himalayan Persian, who is the Mum of our Purebred Persian kitten.

Origins

The history of the Munchkin cat breed is a fascinating blend of genetics and discovery. The short legs characteristic of this breed is a naturally occurring genetic mutation that has been documented in cats as early as the 1930s. The modern breed, however, traces its origins back to the United States in the 1980s, when a school teacher named Sandra Hochenedel discovered two pregnant cats under a pickup truck in Louisiana. These cats, named Blackberry and Blueberry, had the distinctive short legs that would become the hallmark of the Munchkin breed. Blackberry’s kittens were the founding members of the breed, which was officially recognized in 1994.

Key Characteristics Of Munchkins

Are Munchkins Family-Friendly?

As family pets, Munchkins are an excellent choice due to their social nature, friendliness, and adaptability.

Common Health Issues & Considerations

Munchkins may suffer from:

Hyperthyroidism

Osteoarthritis

Spinal Problems

Nature / Temperament

Active, Friendly, Fun-loving, Gentle

Suitable Environment

Their size makes them suitable for both large houses and smaller apartments. 

Other Considerations

  • The Munchkin cat breed is genetically diverse, leading to a variety of coat colours, patterns, and lengths, from short to long haired.
  • One unique behavioural trait of the Munchkin cat is their tendency to sit up on their hind legs, much like a rabbit or a prairie dog. 
  • Despite their social nature, they are not overly demanding and can cope with being left alone for short periods, as long as they have toys and a comfortable place to rest.

How can I take good care of my Munchkin?

Nutrition

Munchkin cats, like all cats, need a balanced diet to stay healthy. High-quality cat food that provides the right blend of proteins, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins, and minerals is essential. Avoid overfeeding as Munchkin cats may be prone to obesity due to their shorter legs and potentially less active lifestyle. Regular check-ups with a vet will help you monitor your cat’s weight and overall health, and they can provide specific dietary advice.

Grooming

Shorthaired Munchkins require minimal grooming – a weekly brush will help keep their coat looking glossy and healthy. Longhaired Munchkins will require more frequent brushing to prevent mats and tangles. 

Exercise

Despite their short legs, they are capable of climbing, running, and playing. However, their short stature does mean they can’t jump as high or run as fast as other breeds. Interactive playtime with toys, puzzle games, and moderate climbing apparatus are great ways to ensure they get enough exercise while also catering to their inquisitive nature.

Training

Munchkins are intelligent and can be trained, although like most cats, they have a mind of their own. Positive reinforcement techniques work best, rewarding good behaviour with treats or praise. Socialisation from a young age is also important, especially if you have other pets or children in the house.

This is general information and should not be relied on for adopting or purchasing advice.

Most Asked Munchkin Questions

Munchkin cats are not hypoallergenic. They produce the same amount of the Fel d 1 protein, which is the primary allergen in cats, as any other breed.

Yes, Munchkin cats can jump, but not as high as other cats due to their short legs.

Finding a reputable Munchkin breeder is the key to getting a healthy, well-behaved Munchkin kitten. Munchkin kittens for sale from ethical breeders have a much better chance of growing into calm, gentle adult cats. The average cost of a Munchkin for sale is usually around AUD $1000 to $2000.
