Scottish Fold Munchkin Kitten

This a note on the Scottish Fold Munchkin, a dwarf Scottish Fold. They are called Scottish Fold Munchkins as the Munchkin is the founding dwarf cat. They are a cross between the Scottish Fold and Munchkin. They are called Scottish Kilts. You’ll find some breeders in the USA but not many. This a cat with double cuteness: the short legs and the flattened ears producing this rounded head and face.

This is a newish breed because when I built the page on dwarf cats and included all the dwarf breeds this cat breed was not around and that was about 6-7 year ago. I believe they are an experimental breed with The International Cat Association. The CFA does not recognise dwarf cats.

Below is an animated gif. Sorry it after a 10 seconds it irritates you! The page is short so you don’t have to be irritated for long.

This super cute cat is a tabby and white. The Munchkin is the founding dwarf cat and all the dwarf cats are crossed with the breed to create various dwarf breeds. They are numerous.

I won’t describe this Scottish Fold Munchkin in detail because the information for both the Scottish Fold and Munchkin are on this website.

You can read about potential dwarf cat health problems on this page as well.

Here is a picture from a video of another Scottish Fold Munchkin:

  1. Yes, the kitten is a cutie pie. However, the desire for cuteness has overstepped the bounds of ethicalness in this new mixture of two breeds with health issues. What price should a helpless animal pay for cute?

    • What you say what a lot of people would say. You know Dan, sometimes I have to put cute stuff on the site and try and entertain the people who like this sort of thing. It is not really my style.

      • OH, I love cute. The second photo above is especially cute. But breeding for cute is wrong when both breeds have potenial health issues. I love them. They are so dang cute. They are very popular in Japan right now. Suprised a new breed name hasn’t been chosen for them yet. Sorry to be a wet blanket.

        • Not a wet blanket Dan, just realistic like the rest of us who hate it that ‘cute’ kittens are bred and advertised and sold, while ordinary random bred kittens and cats are being killed daily for lack of homes.
          All cats are equally as beautiful and deserving.
          It’s just a shame that small minded people have to be entertained.

  2. Michael i have observed a bizarre deformity in most cats in Jakarta. They have stunted tails or short tails akin to the bob cat.

    I have taken pictures of a few and would post them on arrival in India.

    Also came across one of the most beautiful cats in my hostel, a pure “Bengal cat” or definitely a mix breed. First time I saw such brilliant coloration in a cat and thanks to “P.O.C” suspect it to be a “Bengal mix or even pure”. Most tourists at this hostel are from Europe and won’t be surprised if someone dumped a “Bengal cat” in “Six Degree hostel” in Jakarta. Will post photo’s later.

    • Nice to hear from you, Rudolph. I hope you are having a nice time. Your comment is interesting to me. I look forward to receiving more information and some pictures if possible. The Siamese cat is known to have a kinked tail and sometimes a shortened tail in Thailand. It seems that this mutation which alters the tail seems to be endemic in parts of Asia. The Bengal cat that you refer to sounds very interesting. It would be nice to know that it is a genuine cat native to Jakarta. But as you said maybe a cat that was dumped.

      Take care Rudolph and I hope you continue to have a good time.
