“This cat is built Differently”

There are several things about this video which demand a comment 😁. The woman’s voice is mightily sexy and cute. It triggers something in my brain. Her voice is as cute as the cats.

I don’t know if it is a real voice or digitally created. I have a feeling that it is the latter. It adds to the video. It makes it work. Secondly the use of the word “Differently” is interesting. It is capitalised in the video for emphasis. And to describe the artificial breeding of Munchkin dwarf cats as being “built” is describing the process “Differently” 👍. And, yes, this are a chowder of super-cute dwarf cats and kittens. They look like the foundation and original dwarf cat: the Munchkin.

Until September 7th I will give 10 cents to an animal charity for every comment. It is a way to help animal welfare without much effort at no cost. Comments help this website too, which is about animal welfare.

There are about 13 different breeds of dwarf cat and all of them are hybrids with one component being the Munchkin. The video is fun and cute but the dwarf cats are controversial as they are “built” on a genetic mutation which causes an anatomical defect called dwarfism due to dominant gene achondroplasia “or, more likely, one of the mimic conditions pseudochondroplasia or hypochondroplasia” (Sarah Hartwell on her website: messybeast.com). The cats have normal bodies but bowed and shortened legs.

Note: This is a video from another website which is embedded here. Sometimes they are deleted at source which stops them working on this site. If that has happened, I apologise but I have no control over it.

That’s the rub for me. These cute cats suffer from a condition that you would not feature in an entertaining video if they were humans. I know I am being serious when I should simply suck up the cuteness but the video is slightly exploitative.

The CFA (Cat Fanciers’ Association) does not accept the dwarf cats because there are health issues. They can suffer from a couple of defects: pectus excavatum and lordosis. You can read about them by clicking on this link if you wish.

So, cuteness should not really be “built” on poor health, should it?
