Munchkins are short-legged cats with stocky body. These breeds can be shorthaired or longhaired. Their body is moderately broad and medium sized. The head is round with ears set at corner. Ears are triangle shaped, moderately large and full at base. The large walnut shaped eyes are set wide apart and the outer corners slightly upward giving an open, alert expression. The tail is thick with tapers to rounder tip and the length is in proportion to the cat’s body.
Munchkins are also known as magpies, often borrowing small, shiny objects and stashing them away for later play. These breeds can do anything an ordinary cat can do, except leap to the top of the bookcase. They can get on the kitchen counter, but they take the scenic route. Being proficient hunters, they love a good game of catnip mouse. They want attention like any other pets.
Munchkins make wonderful pets. They get along well with children, other cats, dogs and pretty much anything you care to introduce them to. They are a bold cats, and don’t behave any differently because of their size.
These cats coat colour, pattern, and hair length will vary as well, and they can come in any colour or pattern.
These are affectionate and friendly cats. They are typically both funny cats and are lots of fun to have around. These breeds are considered to be more people oriented and affectionate than the average domestic cat.
They live for about 12-15 years.
Shorthaired Munchkins require little to no care because of their great medium textured coat. And for longhaired Munchkins, their silky, semi-long coat can be taken care with a quick bath.
