Munchkin Cats and Kittens

Welcome to my site, enjoy your stay!

Definition of Standand and Non Standard

In Munchkins or any dwarf leg breed, you can get regular length leg or shortleg kittens in a litter.  A shortleg kitten is created by inheriting the gene that causes shortlegs, like a unique feature other breeds may have specific to that breed.  So Mother Nature has alot to do with if a kitten in a litter inherits this.  Some litters do not have shortleg kittens, some do.   

A shortleg kitten is referred to as a "STANDARD" ...that means it has shortlegs.

A regular length leg kitten is referred to as a "NON STANDARD"...that means it is a normal length leg kitten.......

Both kittens are the same in temperment and type, only the leg length is different.

Many families adopt a Non Standard kitten to keep their shortie company, they are priced much much less than a Standard.
