munchkin cats






umm... have you ever seen anything more adorable!!??? my cat fascination has just reached an all-time new level when my sister told me about these little guys. unfortunately the dwarfing of their limbs are a form of mutation, but it does not at all interfere with their health and ability to run and jump. so they're as capable as normal cats, but even cuter!! hahah

now they can join the chibi family with ferrets, corgis, and dachshunds! :-3

those cats are so adorable. i just watched a tv show called Cats 101 and these cats were mentioned on the show. the genetic mutation that gives them the short legs is the same one that gives dachshunds and corgis their short legs as well only cats don't have the back problems because of how much more flexible their spines are compared to dogs. you found such cute photos of them :)

Ah!!! I learned about that today on Cats 101 (the best show!).
they're soooo cute ;3 you really did find good pictures of them. (i almost fell out of my chair when I saw these)
although they are cute, my favorite cat breed is the Japanese Bobtail. V:

I can't help but think if Mojo had legs that stubby, all he would be doing is dragging his flabby belly on the ground!
