Munchkin cats, which impress with their fluffy furry tail, are a very good friend for children.


The Munchkin cats that appeared as a result of the natural mutation appeared in England for the first time. This breed, known since 1944, has appeared in cat beauty contests in England in those years. Outside the UK, it is possible to find traces of Munchkin cats in Russia in 1956 and the USA in the 1970s.

Beginning in 1994, Munchkin cats, which are recognized as a different breed by international authorities, began to be specially produced to maintain their genetic characteristics and reproduce without spoiling. With the participation of numerous cat producers, Munchkin managed to reach their current populations.

Although it has been fully recognized by international organizations since 2003, some very well-established organizations still do not regard Munchkin as a different breed.
