Standard 
vs.
NON-Standard

 

The distinguishing feature of the Munchkin/Minuet is its short legs.

The hind legs are slightly longer than their front legs, but it's important to note that the upper and lower parts of the legs are equal in length.

The legs are medium boned and quite muscular.

Munchkins & Minuets come in a standard (short-legged) version and non-standard (long-legged) version cats.

STANDARD = SHORT LEGS

NON STANDARD = NORMAL LENGTH LEGS (NOT DWARF)

NOT EVERY KITTEN BORN RECEIVES THE DWARF GENE - BUT THEY ARE STILL CONSIDERED MUNCHKINS AND HAVE THE SAME VERY FRIENDLY, LOVING PERSONALITIES.
