Munchkins clearly get their name for their short legs. These adorable little kitties get their unique look from a genetic mutation that causes dwarfism. In fact short-legged cats have popped up in every breed here and there for years. It wasnt until recently that breeders started looking to create a #Munchkin breed. #cats #uniquecats #meowformation
The Munchkin is a cat breed created by a naturally occurring genetic mutation that results in cats with abnormally short legs. However, the shortness of their legs does not seem to interfere with their running and leaping abilities.
A confident, outgoing breed, the Munchkin is known for its short legs and long body. These little legs to nothing to handicap the breed, however, and it remains playful, happy and loving despite its different appearance.
