The Munchkin is a medium sized cat, moderate in body type and head shape, with a thick, plush coat. The coat comes in all colours and patterns, and there is also a long-haired variety. 

The Munchkin is notable for their leg length as owing to a genetic mutation, the Munchkin has very short legs, which in turn gives the cat a rather long, low appearance.

The short leggedness of the Munchkin breed is a deformity that means that they are prone to developing arthritis. 


If your first thought on meeting a Munchkin is ‘cat-weasel’, you wouldn’t be far wrong. The Munchkin 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.
