MUNCHKINLANE AIN'T NO BIG DEAL

ON THE COVER OF CAT FANCY

May 2014

Munchkins are cats SOMETIMES born with short legs.  The original two females, that were used for the foundation of the breed, who had short legs, were discovered in the Southern United States. Munchkins are a natural mutation, not a man made breed. In the early days they thrived running loose on Boscobel Plantation.  In 1990, a captive breeding program was initiated and  "baby legs" kittens were on their way to becoming an established breed in The International Cat Association"


The littermates below illustrate the different leg lengths

MUNCHKIN HISTORY CREATED APRIL 16, 2010

"Dealer", pictured below was named "Best cat in Show"  Not in just one of the judging rings, he got a final in all 12 and was the Best Cat in the entire show, some call it Best of the Best.  No Munchkin has ever accomplished this in a TICA show before.  It is great for the breed that a Munchkin was able to achieve this highest available .
