Munchkin - Silkenclaw Jem Squash Pie
bred by Grant Leih
A medium haired Munchkin given to me as a gift.
Grant, thank you so much for this precious "Jem" of a baby who has no idea how to turn her purrbox off.
Once Jem grows up, she will be part of our Bambino breeding program.
Munchkins come in all colors and patterns and their most adorable feature is their short legs.

Sphynx are a relatively new breed of cat and
are undertaken by many breeders.
I started with a domestic –
we named her Hillary after the area we live in
because she was found on our verge
in a plastic packet
with 4 of her siblings.
Once Hillary had grown up and been blood tested,
she was mated to
MoonCatz Hapajo's Bare Bear
and they produced 3 kittens.
A male that was sterilized and 2 females.
One was kept in the breeding program.
Her name is
She in turn was mated to
Grand Sphynx Onyx
and 4 females were born.
Three of them with fur and one totally naked.
One of these girls had long fur
so she was sterilized and petted out.
The others remain in the breeding program
and once they are old enough,
more will be written about their progress.
Here are photos of them
starting with the foundation cat,
There are also pictures of the 3 furry cats
as they are growing up.

Furlismi has grown up and produced 5 kittens to Tinkerbald.

There are 2 Munchkins - a brown sepia and white boy and a black tortie girl as well as a black and white Sphynx boy and
a black and white furry long legged boy.
