Your Pet, Our Passion.


The Singapura is a pretty little cat, elegant, muscular and lithe but not extreme or harshly angular in build. Their head is rounded with a short broad muzzle, eyes are large, almond shaped, and come in hazel, green or yellow, with a strong black outline or eyeliner. 

The Singapura coat is short and smooth, with agouti banded hairs that give the cat an attractively shaded coat. 

11 - 15 years
2 - 3kg

Generally healthy breed

Singapura cats can suffer from:
- Pyruvate kinase deficiency which is a disease that causes anaemia (death of red blood cells).  
- Progressive retinal atrophy which is an inherited disorder where part of the eye degenerates and wastes away which can result in blindness.

Testing available:
- DNA testing for pyruvate kinase deficiency and progressive retinal atrophy which tests whether or not a cat has the potential to be affected by these conditions.


Often described as ‘impish’, this little cat with the large eyes and curious, extroverted nature is endlessly appealing. This is a ‘helpful’ cat, not quite the full chaos levels of many other oriental type cats, but very much inclined to be involved in your business, whatever that may be. Expect them to be sat on your paperwork, on your laptop or climbing around your shoulders or practicing the ancient feline art of ‘pushing things from high places’. Choose your household décor with caution when there is a Singapura around! 

Friendly and affectionate with family and familiar friends, they can be a little aloof with strangers to begin with. Playful and lively, they are good with respectful children but will find a chaotic or loud household rather stressful.
