Meet Bell, a cat with a majestic squirrel-like tail. Bell belongs to a recent breed, called Minuet (also known as the Napoleon), and one of its main features is a really fluffy rear end. Other notable characteristics include short legs and a round face, making Minuets so adorable that you just have to say awww when looking at them.
SKOOKUM: LaPerm x Munchkin | In this breeding we hope to get a short legged cat with curly hair, which doesn't happen with any predictable regularity. The litters of two Skookum parents can contain Laperms, Munchkins, Skookums and Non Standards, (cats with neither curls nor short legs). When we do get a Skookum we are thrilled as they have the cute personality of the munchkin, the extreme brightness of the laperm AND the low maintenance curly coat of the laperm…
(These cats originally were a single mutation that people then capitalized on because they thought the short legs were 'cute.' Cats were built to jump and be lithe, not have daschund' legs. Munchkins are exploited.)
The Skookum- is a hybrid cat breed that was created using two cat breeds with unique and different genetic mutations. It combines the short legs of the Munchkin cat and the Rexed (curly) coat of La Perm cats.
