My name is Terri J. Harris. I am one of the original founders/breeders of the Munchkin Cat breed. I have been a TICA member since 1994, with no lapse in membership. In 1995 I signed and continue to be a TICA registered Responsible Breeder, I have many award winning cats and have shipped internationally for many years. I am currently serving as the Munchkin Breed Chair in my third elected term.
The majority of my cats, or their ancestors, have been examined by Dr. Leslie Lyons, who is a Genetics Researcher; the cats visited her genetics labs and had extensive tests from head to toe, X Rays, MRI, CT Scans and bloodwork for genetic research. See information on my research page.
Munchkin Cats and Munchkin Kittens, the traditional variety with no pedigreed hybridization, are a very healthy breed. You can expect your Munchkin to live over 15 years, maybe until 20+.
