Munchkin Overview

The Munchkin cat breed is characterised by having very short legs. The Munchkin is a very sweet cat with a playful nature and outgoing personality. They’re very intelligent cat breed and respond very well to training and being handled. Some owners of the Munchkin cat breed have trained their cat to walk on a leash, which comes in very handy when taking them outside. The Munchkin retains its kitten-like behaviour well into adulthood. Their cutesiness can easily melt your heart which often leads to the Munchkin wrapping their owner around their little paws.

This cat breed is small to medium-sized and a moderate shape body type. The male Munchkin is typically larger than the female Munchkin and weighs in the region of 6-9 pounds and the female weighs 4-8 pounds. Their coat colour comes in a variety of colours.

They’re very sociable and get along with most people and other domestic pets. They’re not very high maintenance and only require a weekly brush to keep their coat healthy and shiny.
