Minuet

The Minuet (formerly known as the Napoleon) cat is a mixed breed cat–a cross between the Munchkin and Persian cat breeds. The Napoleon inherited its distinctively short legs from the Munchkin, which are caused by a naturally occurring genetic mutation. These felines are loving, playful, friendly, and they have a warm personality. They also do great with kids and will bond very easily with humans. They do not like being left alone, and instead prefer the company of people, other pets, and other kitties.

Sphynx

The progenitor of the Sphynx appeared in Toronto, Canada, in 1966, born to a domestic cat with a regular coat. The hairlessness was the result of a natural mutation, however the Sphynx cat, as a breed, was developed through selective breeding. Sphynx are known for their extroverted behavior. They display a high level of energy, intelligence, curiosity and affection for their owners. They demand your unconditional attention and are as mischievous and lovable as children.

Khao Manee

Despite their wild appearance, Bengal cats are actually quite affectionate with their human families. This is a cat who needs a lot of vertical territory. Bengals love to climb, the higher the better. Provide them with tall cat trees and window perches. They are also fond of playing water.
