Meet Melvin, the teacup Himalayan

Yes, I said teacup.
I know many Himalayan and Persian breeders say that there is no such thing, but Melvin was born with a form of dwarfism that will make him forever small.



The lady I got him from had previously purchased two cats with this form of dwarfism and, due to their small size, wasn't able to fix them right away. Well, things happened and little Melvin was born.

We went through all kinds of problems at the beginning, but he's doing a lot better these days.

Read about his story and see all kinds of pictures at http://mouchois.blogspot.com/

Re: Meet Melvin, the teacup Himalayan

He's super cute and super sweet, but these little guys shouldn't be bred. We're still waiting around to see if he has any more problems due to genetics.

Melvin and all his problems are the reason that "teacup" breeding should not catch on.
