Singapura Cat

The Singapura Cat, Singapura a Malaysian word for Singapore, although claims of it having originated from Singapore remain questionable. Also known as 'drain cats' because they were reputed to inhabit the city drains, they are also known as the Singapore River Cat. The base stock of all the Singapura cats in the United States is just four cats. They all belong to one American breeder. The Cat Fanciers Association in the US gave the Singapura cat pedigree status in 1988.

The Singapura is one of the rarest cats in the world, and is also registered as the smallest recognised breed in the Guinness Book of World Records. Although small, he has a somewhat stocky body that is muscular. When he stands, his body, legs and the floor form a square. Singapura is shorthaired cat with noticeably large eyes and ears. On first impression, you might think you were looking at some new color of Abyssinian. The light beige coloring is unique and thought by some to be similar to cougars. The tail is normal length and the feet are very small. Eyes may be hazel, green or yellow but mature eye color is not predicable in kittens. Many veterinarians seeing a Singapura for the first time are apt to think something might be wrong with the kitten since it is so small. The Singapura is slow to develop and will not attain its full size until about 15 to 24 months of age. There isn't much difference in size between mature males and females, females weighing approximately 5 to 6 pounds and males 6 to 8 pounds.

You will find this cat's intelligence, playfulness and unique appearance captivating from the first time you meet one. This is an active cat that loves to be with his humans. He gets along great with other animals and the female is very loving and maternal with her litters. Singapura cats love to lick, butt heads. The Singapura's disposition is that of a "pesky people cat," an extroverted, curious, playful but non-destructive cat that insists on helping you with everything. Some have called them "groupies" since they are social, seldom squabble and group around people, including visitors. However, they are not demanding and are always gentle. Even in season they have quiet voices. They are non confrontational and will rarely enter into a dispute or quarrel. They are suited for indoor life. Provide plenty of toys, as well as your attention. Scratching posts for sharpening claws and climbing are a must, the taller the better. They are a healthy breed with no inherent health problems & are generally a very robust cat. Average life span for a well cared for cat seems to be 12 to 15 years of age.
