Hi, I brought a friend a kitten for Xmas and I'm now convinced he must be part bengal from being so shy and scared he is no so naughty confident, and she is struggling with his behaviour a little and she has always had cats so it's not like it's new to her :-/ .

Your description sounds like a lot of cats. Unless we see pictures (tummy pics also), there is no way for anyone to say what kind of cat it is just by describing his personality. :wink:

He is a very sweet looking tabby cat. Bengals do not carry the gene that gives white colouring on their feet.
Enjoy him and love him as he will be a good friend!

He looks like a very attractive tabby with a marble-like pattern.

I'm not 100% sure but I think you probably have yourself a lion there.

I had this very same thought and looked up getting a breed called the Munchkin... Beautiful, small kitten sized cats but unfortunately they're considered malformed =/

Munchkin are not small cats they have deformed short legs and suffer a multitude of health problems.


To the OP, this is standard normal kitten behavior really. I think you easily and quickly forget how naughty and playful kittens are. The kitten in question is not a Bengal but a very pretty tabby and white Moggie cat.... Love his pink nose!

I mentioned the malformation in my post which is why i did not buy one. It doesn't make the breed less cute but it would be incredibly immoral to purchase a munchkin as it would give the breeders one more reason to continue breeding. If they were considered normal and healthy I would most definitely get one. I read about them before committing to buying one and it's clear the breed should be banned.

Curious though, how come if Munchkins are considered "malformed" does TICA recognize them?

They are bred with deformities in their legs/genetic deformities which is what makes their legs so stubby if I remember correctly. It causes them a category of issues. I don't know if tica recognises them or not but I would hope not.

This is a quote from TICA's website...

TICA recognized the Munchkin for registration status in 1994 and for Championship status, after years of careful monitoring for health, in May 2003.

That really sucks. I did research before deciding on buying one or not and a lot of only websites say they're basically diseased. Could just be incorrect information though.
Still cute as anything!
