Overview of Singapura
If you think that the Singapura is just a little cat, you're mistaken! These kitties are lively, curious, and always want to be at the center of the action. No one knows precisely where this breed came from, while some suspect Singapore; others believe it to be somewhere in the USA. Either way, we're sure glad that they're here to stay! The Singapura is thought to be a cross between a Burmese and an Abyssinian. Their most outstanding feature is their small size - some adult Singapuras can weigh as little as 4lbs! The coat is always agouti, a type of fur coloration where each hair displays two or more bands of color. The Singapura’s short coat makes grooming a breeze - once every couple of weeks should do the trick!
Personality of Singapura
Singapuras are one of the smallest cat breeds out there, and though they have gentle voices, they make their presence known in other ways! They are very active, playful kitties that love people and thrive on attention! Singapuras love being in a warm lap and are always ready for a good cuddle. So if you’re on the lookout for a playful, active kitty that loves to cuddle and is as cute as a button, get your paws on a Singapura!
