The Secret Language of Cats


The little guy with the little legs

By: Kelly Caldwell


This breed, developed in the 1980s by a music teacher from Louisiana, is defined by its extremely short legs, a trait owing to a genetic mutation. Although critics have expressed concern over potential mobility issues, Munchkin fanciers claim the shortness of the breed’s legs doesn’t impede its running and jumping skills—perhaps partially due to the slightly higher hind legs, which come in handy for feline acrobatics. This is a small to medium sized breed that comes in both shorthaired and longhaired varieties.
