Munchkins Cat Guide

Munchkins are sometimes described as "ferret-like" in their playfulness, as they run, chase, and play with toys. They also have an endearing way of sitting up, rabbit-like, on their hind legs, a trait which gave the Stalingrad cat the name of "Stalingrad Kangaroo Cat." Because munchkins may be bred to a wide variety of domestic cats, an individual cat's personality will depend on its inheritance. All-in-all, they have been described as loving, sociable, and playful by munchkin fans.The munchkin's coat requires a little grooming assistance since its shorter legs make it harder to reach certain areas during self-grooming. Shorthaired cats should be brushed weekly and long-haired cats should be brushed a couple of times per week. Regular brushing helps prevent hairballs and matting. You should keep your cat's nails trimmed. Help your cat maintain oral hygiene by brushing its teeth a couple of times per week and get regular cleaning at the veterinarian.
