Smallest breed of cat

Postby Elina » Fri Aug 29, 2014 6:29 am

So I know there are big breeds of domestic cat but other then munchkins that are just small due to their legs are there any all round small breeds of cat?
Just with some breeds of dog being bred to be smaller I wonder if anyone is doing or has done the same with cats?

You don't get as big a difference as in dog because the extreme sizes in dogs are due to a special gene. Smallest breeds of cats are about 4 pound then you get the largest cats at 20-25 pounds.

Singapura(4-6 pounds), munchkin(6-9), devon and cornish rex(5-10), lambkin(4-6), Minskin(4-6 but average is said to be 4 so would be the smallest if true), napoleon (4-6 not official breed yet)

Very interesting and good to know.

I must go look up these breeds. Audrey is taking her Bengal to boarding school but I worry he will be sent home due to his general attitude to anyone but Audrey and so I was thinking maybe a smaller breed would be good. I know most cats are smaller then Kikomo but if I get her one that is meant to be small hopefully she wont end up with an odd one that is as big as Kikomo. I mean I can see a rescue ending up being like 75% Maine coon lol.

Okay googled and I like the look of the Singapura the most and I think Audrey will too.
We shall see if Kikomo gets expelled from school lol.
