10 Smallest Cat Breeds

Minskin Cat

4 – Minskin

The Minskin is a dwarf variety of cat and is a cross between the Sphynx and the Munchkin. Possessing huge eyes and ears, the coat of the Minskin comes not only in a variety of colors, but ‘hairiness’ as well: Minskins can be fully-coated cats, hairless, or fur-pointed (hair on feet, tail, and ears). It might be said that the Minskin makes up for its short legs by having an exceptionally long tail; this tail can actually be longer than the cat’s body.

In addition to all its unique physical features, the Minskin is an affectionate and lively little cat that is great around children and enjoys being around other pets, even dogs. This is a very healthy breed of cat, but it does need a weekly bath. Because the Minskin has either no hair, or very sparse hair, oils can build up on the skin, and these will need to be removed in the tub. Start this while your Minskin is still a kitten – it will probably come to accept this as simply a part of life.
