The minskin is a hairless, short-legged cat that is a mix between a munchin and a sphynx. Later on, the Devon rex and Burmese cat breeds were combined to form this breed. The “points” of these cats’ bodies are generally covered in sparse, fine fur (the nose, ears, legs, and tail). Almost always, their bellies are bald.
Overview of the Breed :
- 7–8 INCHES IN HEIGHT
- APPROXIMATE WEIGHT: 4–6 POUNDS
- Short legs; scant hair only on the tips (ears, nose, legs, tail)
