Adopting a Munchkin in Minnesota
If you were not able to find what you were looking for or any expected litters from the above breeders, you could consider adopting a Munchkin.
Adopting a cat from a shelter or a rescue is always a satisfying thing to do. It means you’re giving a cat another chance at living in a home with a loving family.
If you’re considering it or interested to learn more, here are a couple of places to look:
Both of these sites are large databases that connect you with thousands of cat rescues and shelters across the U.S.
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 (TICA) is a major player in worldwide cat registries. Founded in 1967, TICA was created as an alternative to the American Cat Fanciers Association (which used mixed breeds to register their cats).
TICA is the world’s largest and oldest association for cat enthusiasts and breeders. It has over fifty years of experience in registering purebred cats from all over the world.
The Cat Fanciers’ Association (CFA) is a non-profit, international organization devoted to the advancement of purebred cats through breeding, showing, and educational programs.
Founded in 1906, it is the largest purebred cat registry in North America. CFA has more than 300 affiliated clubs in North America and has offices on both coasts of the United States.
Average Cost of a Munchkin Kittens
It’s always hard to give out an average cost of exotic or rare breeds of cats as there are a lot of factors that affect the price.
To give you a rough example, you can expect to pay between $800-$2,000. But don’t be surprised to see a few thousand added on for a pedigree or rare color Munchkin though.
It’s a good idea to reach out to a couple of breeders in your area to get a better idea of price.
Average Cost of a Munchkin Cats
If you’re looking for an adult Munchkin, you can expect to pay a little less than a kitten. You’re probably still looking at four figures though unless you find one in need of adoption from a rescue.
Some Facts About Munchkin Cats
Also known as ‘drawf cats’ and ‘sausage cats’, it’s no surprise that Munchkins are a unique and interesting-looking breed.
Here are some facts about this breed that you may not have known about:
- Munchkins’ legs are around 3 inches shorter than average cats – that’s a lot!
- It will come as no surprise that a Munchkin holds the record for the shortest living cat.
- They are a fairly new breed, only really being introduced to the scene in 1991.
- They really are named after the small characters from the Wizard of Oz!
- They are one of the most playful breeds, even long into adulthood.
Munchkin Care and Maintenance
Despite their unusual appearance, Munchkins are one of the more low-maintenance and easy to care for breeds of cat.
Their indoor cats and most have short coats, so you should only have to brush them once a week or so to help keep their coats in top condition.
With their small legs and reduced agility, you’ll notice there are a lot fewer places they can get to as well. When buying or making cat furniture, take this into account.
The only thing I’ll point out on the care side is that Munchkins are quite demanding on the playing and attention front. They love interacting with people and playing, and it’s so much fun I don’t see that as a downside.
Are Munchkins Good Pets?
Munchkins are a great choice as a family pet. They’re sociable, great with kids and other pets, curious, loads of fun, and will give you loads of love back.
They’re a relatively new breed in the feline world, so there isn’t much known about any long-term health issues.
It’s assumed by some that they may suffer from some back problems, just as sausage dogs do. There is no evidence to back this up though.
If you make sure they maintain a healthy weight and feed good quality nutrition, the risk of any health issues is low.
Two of the main things I always see owners talking about is how playful and cuddly Munchkins are. They act like playful kittens for years and love nothing more than curling up on a lap.
What more could you want as a cat owner, right?
There are really no drawbacks to owning this dwarf, mini-me breed. If you have any concerns or questions, I recommend contacting a breeder and asking them.
