It has long been known in the world of cat ladies (and gentlemen) that munchkin cats are superstars of the highest order. A rare genetic defect produces short legs and the most adorable disposition. Best of all? They don’t know they have short legs.

To lay it out in simple terms for dog people – they’re basically the Corgis of the feline world. So just try not to fall in love with these magical creatures.
