Genetic Mutation Makes Rare “Munchkin Cats” The Cutest Creatures You’ve Never Heard Of.

I’ll admit it: I am not a cat person. Dogs are undeniably my pet of choice and I would choose to swoon over photos of puppies rather than those of cats pretty much any day... Unless they're Munchkin cats. Never heard of a Munchkin cat? With their tiny legs, they're basically the corgis of the cat world. According to Vetstreet, the low stature of Munchkin cats is due to a spontaneous natural genetic mutation. But just because they have short legs doesn’t mean they won’t want to play. The breed is high on energy and social, and if you introduce a Munchkin cat to a dog there’s a chance they’ll become good friends! But most importantly of all: they're really cute. Check out our favorite Munchkins below!
