Is the Munchkin cat a mutation or a natural breed? I've always been curious about these cats. They are so funny looking! I love their short little legs. I saw on Cats 101 that they can have some serious health problems though, where their organs are actually crushed by their skeleton! Does anybody know what the genetics are in this breeding? Like I said, I'm just really curious. I don't know if I would ever want to own one, but they are super cute, and I'm kind of considering it in the future.
