TICA and CFA Certifications
You may have seen some breeders saying they are TICA and CFA certified. This is an extra stamp of approval that they registered their cats and are maintaining a high standard.
Here’s what these organizations mean:
The International Cat Association is a club for all who have an interest in cats and their well-being. Not only does TICA sponsor educational opportunities, but it also offers registry services for purebred cats.
It’s one of the largest and most respected cat registries in the world because it’s open to everyone. All you need is an interest in domestic felines and a willingness to abide by TICA’s Code of Ethics.
The Cat Fanciers’ Association (CFA) is an international organization of judges, cat show exhibitors and enthusiasts devoted to the natural beauty and healthy breeding of pedigreed cats.
The CFA was founded in 1907 by Mrs. H.J. Willard and a small group of friends who wished to promote “the scientific breeding of pure-bred cats” according to the Standard Of Excellence (SOE) set forth by good breeders for many decades before them.

Caring for Munchkins and Maintenance
Some rare and exotic breeds of cats are high-maintenance or require a higher level of care than regular cats. Not munchkins.
These short-legged cats have short coats, so a little light brushing is all that’s required from owners. They also aren’t as agile as other cats, so there’s less risk of getting injured or causing mischief getting places they shouldn’t.
They obviously look pretty fragile, but there is nothing to worry about. As long as you make your home Munchkin-friendly and provide them with toys and cat furniture they can make good use of – they’ll be happy.
The main difference from other breeds – apart from the obvious physical differences – is that they love to play. Make sure you have plenty of cat toys, and also spend plenty of time hanging out with them as they love affection from humans.
Do Munchkins Make Good Family Pets?
Whether you’ve never owned a cat before or you’ve had many, you’ve nothing to worry about. Munchkins are awesome pets that get along with people and other animals.
Generally speaking, they’re curious, fun, cute, and love exploring – without being able to get to all those hard-to-reach spots other cats can get to.
Munchkins have a lot of love to give, if you enjoy petting and having a lap cat then you’re in for a real treat.
They are also very playful too, so you’ll have endless hours of fun playing with them. Most owners say they retain their kitten-like playing attributes much longer into adulthood than most breeds.
All they need is good food, plenty of interaction, a nice perch in the window, and you’ll have a best friend for life.
