When you see the Munchkin moving at high speed, cornering around your dining room table, you immediately drop any preconception that this is a slow or laid-back cat. Instead, he’s an energetic extrovert, ready and willing to play with kids, other cats, and friendly dogs. And don’t think his short legs preclude him from jumping on your furniture. He might not go as high as other cats, at least not in one leap, but he gets there eventually. The Munchkin is a smallest cat weighing 5 to 9 pounds. Other than his short legs, he resembles any other cat, with a shorthair or long coat, either of which can be just about any color or pattern.

The Munchkin is well suited to any home with people who will love him and care for him. Keep him indoors to protect him from cars, diseases spread by other cats, and attacks from other animals and he can live 13 years or longer.

Children & Other Pets

The Munchkin is generally described as a sweet-natured, playful, people-oriented, outgoing and intelligent cat which responds well to being handled. Some sources state that the shortness of their legs does not interfere with their running and leaping abilities, while others state their ability to jump is limited by their condition.
