Stubby Cuteness: 15 Munchkin Cats That Will Make You Melt

Posted by Staff Writer

Munchkin cats will just walk all over your heart with their stubby legs!

Munchkin cats are pretty new as far as breeding goes, having been around since the 1980s. The breed was started on a bit of a fluke when a woman found a pregnant cat under her truck and half of the babies ended up with short legs.

These babies were the start of a new breed, which quickly got approved by the International Cat Association's genetics committee and was introduced to the public in the early 1990s. Since then, Munchkin cats have really taken off and are incredibly popular.

Munchkin cats come in all different colors, and luckily they do not have any of the spinal problems that other stubby legged pets like Corgis and Dachsunds sometimes suffer from. Here are some of the cutest munchkins out there:
