The Munchkin has a thick, fluffy coat and is a medium-sized cat with a middling body type and head shape. There is a long-haired variation of the coat, which is available in a wide range of hues and patterns.

The Munchkin is distinguished by its unusually small legs, which result from a genetic abnormality, giving the cat a fairly long, low appearance.

Munchkins are very cute looking small to medium sized cats that have a lot of energy. They may have short legs, but these little cats are very quick when playing an interactive game with their owners. They are confident, outgoing cats that are comfortable in human company and love nothing more than being in a home environment.


f your first thought on meeting a Munchkin is ‘cat-weasel’, you wouldn’t be far wrong. The Munchkin kitten can find it hard to jump (although many can) and they move very differently to standard legged cats, with a much wrigglier, rolling motion.  

Curious, intelligent, friendly and playful, the Munchkin is in other respects much like any domestic cat, possibly more inclined to enjoy handling and lap-time than some, but equally keen to exercise their feline hunting behaviour by chasing and hunting toys if given the opportunity.

History and Origins

Country of Origin: United States

Originating in the USA, the Munchkin mutation was first spotted in a litter of stray kittens in 1983. Although short legged cats have been noted a number of times since the 1940’s, this was the first time such kittens were kept and bred from to recreate the short-legged appearance. 

Their existence as a pedigree cat is somewhat controversial with few cat registry associations recognising them at all. It is thought that the short-legged gene also results in health problems and opinions are divided as to whether these cats

Myland Cattery breed Munchkin cats because we have an undying love for the breed and want to share that love with others. We only have a few litters a year at Myland Cattery because of our small size.
