I found your information quite interesting in spite of the facts are incorrect in a couple of places. The Munchkin breed does, occasionally, inherit a health problem due to the dwarfism, but it is not common. Basically they are a very healthy breed leading a normal life span, and yes, they are fast, ever seen a slow squirrel or ferret?
One of the difficulties in breeding Munchkins is the placement of the non-standard (tall) kittens as they should look like a non-purebred domestic cat, this is the reason for additional dwarf breeds, the non-standard kittens resemble a purposely bred cat and are easier to find homes for.
