About the Munchkin

These sociable cats are extremely playful and love to run, chase and play with toys. They love company, including children, dogs and other pets.

They may not jump from the floor to the top of the bookcase in a single bound, but they will show off their jumping prowess and intelligence as they find a path that takes them there in smaller steps.
