The Minskin, also known as 'Teddy Rex', is a unique breed with striking characteristics, are recognized for their short legs and sparse fur, except for points on their ears, face, legs, and tail. This breed emerged from the fusion of the Sphynx and the Munchkin, inheriting the distinct coat gene from the Sphynx and the short stature from the Munchkin breed, resulting in a cat with distinctive physical traits. While they come in various coat colors, such as tortie, tabby, and colorpoint, Minskins typically have soft down fur. They are renowned for their playful and affectionate nature, coexisting well with children and other pets, making them an ideal choice for families. As indoor cats, Minskins are low-energy but require regular human contact to meet their emotional needs.
