The Dwelf is a hybrid breed. The Dwelf is a crossbreed between the Munchkin, Shynx and American Curl breeds, which gives it its unique appearance in taking on the genetics of these three breeds.
The Dwelf can also be outcrossed with the Minskin and Bambino which are very similar in appearance.
The Dwelf is a small hairless cat with short legs and curled ears. The short legs, neck and body of the Dwelf are heavily muscled giving the cat a stocky, heavy appearance.
In some Dwelf cats the hind legs maybe longer than the front ones. Their tails resemble that of a whip.
The Dwelf cat is known to be a good climber. The Dwelf cat has broad ears which do not curl back like those of the American Curl but stand very upright on its head giving it an elf like appearance.
The Dwelf has the appearance of being hairless but in some cases may have a fine covering of down with some hair on their nose, ears, tails and scrotum. Body hair type can range from complete hairlessness to fine down. Hairless can result in the Dwelf not having any eyebrows or whiskers.
A top quality Dwelf will also have wrinkles especially on the forehead, shoulders and legs.
Dwelf males are usually 25% larger than their female counterparts. A typical Dwelf will weigh around 4 pounds which make them toy sized which you can almost compare to an average sized kitten when fully grown.
Dwelf cats are sociable by nature and do well with families. They love to play and sit on your lap.
The Dwelf diet should be limited when it comes to serving them carbohydrates which can result in diabetes, obesity and death.
It is always best to ask for some cat food from your breeder because they are the experts and at their very first check up which you should do within 72 hours of purchase, ask your vet for nutritional advice for your Dwelf so you know exactly what you should be feeding them and it if it is very different make small gradual changes.
A Dwelf which stops eating will develop liver problems which can result in death.
