The Munchkin cat has no problem getting around the same as its longer-limbed feline friends — it just might take them a few extra steps along the way. These cute, curious cats are known for snatching shiny objects, so don’t be surprised if these “magpies” borrow your favorite piece of jewelry.
For their part, Munchkins, oblivious to the controversy surrounding them, go on being just what they are—cats—self-assured and outgoing. Shortchanged in the leg department doesn’t mean short on intelligence or personality. Friendly and people-oriented, Munchkins make devoted companions, and they get along well with other cats, dogs, and people. They love to wrestle and play with their long-legged feline friends, happily unaware that there’s anything different about them. Nor do their feline companions treat them as members of the vertically challenged. It’s only humans who look at them askance.
