My female munchkin nursing her offspring
I am really interested in this breed. I became aware of the existence of this breed in 2006. Late huh... hehe... But then I tried to find one as pet. But here, in Malaysia, this breed is too rare and many Malaysians here cannot recognize this breed, even the owner of the petshop here.
Especially, here in Johore, one of the states in Malaysia.... Most of the petshop owners said that this kind of breed has no market.
I don't know, but for me, this breed is so, so and so adorable.... And, they also said that the Munchkin breed must mate with Munchkin breed. It's not true right???
Because, from my readings, they are autosomal dominant and if two munchkin are mated together, they tend to get 25% fatal feotus..Am I right?
If not, please let me know then. I mate my female munchkin with my Persian stud, and, get 3 standard munchkin kitten and 3 non-standard Munchkin kitten. So the theory is true then.
With the standard Munchkin mating together with a normal legged cat, I can get 50% standard munchkin and 50% non-standard munchkin (normal legged cat) kittens. Above is a picture of my female Munchkin nursing her offspring... Thank you..
Update: - Hiro Nakamura. Son of Suci (The munchkin)
Here a picture of my Munchkin queen's son. Hiro Nakamura...(Japanese name) hehehehe... He is a semi-long hair Munchkin because his mum (standard Munchkin) is the carrier of longhair coat n his father is traditional Persian.
Hi Fendi... Everything that you say is correct. Great. You know more than the others! In fact as you say it is essential to do as you are doing.
Thanks for returning to the site. It is very nice to hear from cat people in Asia and places that are a long way away from Europe and the USA.
I have a question. You come from Johore. Google maps finds Johor. Is this where you live? Please leave a comment by clicking on the link below.
