Where are you from?

In the eighties a cat was found in New York with very short legs that had a litter of several specimens, some with normal legs and others with short legs. That is considered the origin of this race, since, although several previous cases had been identified, they had ended up losing track. In the nineties this breed gained great popularity and became entrenched in American society. While there are people who consider this size of the legs as a sign of a malformation in the spine, the truth is that this animal can grow and develop with total normal.

Main features

It is a small or medium-sized cat in its adult stage, which has a balanced and well-formed body. Despite having the short legs, this does not imply any impediment and is capable of normal life. Sometimes the hind legs are longer than the front legs. Its fur is soft and velvety and we can find them of all colors.

What care do you need?

The truth is that in this sense, their care does not differ in excess of those of other cats. You have to give it a quality food and prevent it from becoming sedentary, since it could be overweight.
