Minskin Breed Summary
Sweet-tempered, Friendly, Inquisitive, Intelligent
Due to its short legs, this kitty sits low to the ground and has large ears, a narrow nose, wide round eyes and a very sparse coat that can be seen at its extremities, such as the face, ears, tail and legs.
Although this breed is rare, owners have described the Minskin as a very affectionate, sociable and loyal cat. They can form strong attachments with their people and would much rather be in the company of their favourite people than be left home alone for long periods of time.

|Common health issues
|The Minskin is relatively healthy, however, as the breed hasn’t been around for one entire lifespan of the average cat, it’s hard to really say what to expect in the future. As the moment, the Minskin doesn’t seem any more prone to major health issues than other munchkin breeds.
These kitties enjoy playtime and their curious nature means they’re always on the prowl, exploring their environments. Even when the Minskin is taken to a new place, they waste no time in exploring and adapting. Outgoing and affectionate, this cat is very people-friendly and makes a wonderful companion to have in the home, especially as they tend to get along with children and other pets too.
While the Minskin isn’t particularly loud, they do well to communicate their needs well and make themselves understood.
