Munchkin

Munchkin

Munchkin breed is just like any other type of cat, except with miniature legs! Their short legs are a result of a natural genetic mutation which gained favor with cat lovers and has been especially bred by people for its certain appeal. Their height doesn’t actually prevent them from zooming around or climbing like typical cats, but it does seem to prevent them from leaping as high as other cats.

Sphynx

Sphinx

Sphynx is a breed most recognized as being hairless, but this is not the case. This breed actually has a fine, velvety, soft fur coat . Their whiskers are often short and frazzled looking, almost as though they were burned. Their big bat-like ears and wrinkle folded coats are a sure sign that they are Sphynx cats.

  1. Actually, tabby is not a breed, but a pattern. Any breed of cat is genetically a tabby, but the pattern may be lost due to modifying genes. Tabbies can be classic (blotched, bull’s eye), mackerel (tiger striped), spotted (as in Egyptian Mau) or ticked (Abyssinian). Bengal cats have different tabby patterns due to the influence of the Asian Leopard cat, which was used to create it, so their markings are somewhat different.
