| All Munchkins suffer from a genetic malformation, achondroplasia, which causes their abnormally short legs. All Munchkins are descended from a tomcat named Toulouse. Munchkins are a controversial breed since they are intentionally bred to have a genetic malformation which can lead to health problems. Munchkins come from a pregnant, short-legged cat found under a trailer in Louisiana in the early eighties.
