As adorable as Munchkin cats are, breeding them to have short legs is not healthy.
Within a few generations of breeding they may die prematurely until 1 in every 10 kittens make it.
Breeding animals to look cute isn't right if it affects their health in the long run.
Not a vegan, just someone who knows his **** and cares.

They didn't breed them that way, it's a genetic mutation. Although they do try to keep the same species from mating so it prevents more health problems.

We have back problems because our spine sucks for upright animals. Everything in nature was selected for by either sexual selection, natural selection or artificial selection animals dont live in some vacuum and never change. While sure some artificial selection is unhealthy literally every domesticated animal you see has been selected for the traits you see.

No domesticated animal is as it was in nature many have heath problems, many do not.

Okay. When did anyone say that animals weren't selected for? You're so eager to flaunt your wikipedia knowledge that you didn't even read the post. No one said selective breeding itself was cruel, no one said that animals 'live in a vacuum and never change.' Just that breeding an animal to have horrible health problems--where sometimes as little as 1 in 10 survive andt he ones that survive are almost guaranteed to ahve back problems--is incredible cruel, especially just for the sake of aesthetics.

Poor things, but we don't seem to care about that, so long as it's cute.

I know small dogs get back problems but I read munchkin cats don't because cats have naturally flexible spines. They do have problems with their birthrates though.

Actually that's just with dogs. Cats have a different kind of spine that's more resilient .

Cats 101: Munchkin back problems aren't that bad
#9 to #8 - victorybell (06/10/2014) [-]
Actually, where cats have different back bones than dogs, they don't hurt their backs as much as you would think. I think it has something to do with the fact that their shoulders aren't connected to their spine or something.

Yeah but that's wrong, that cat is a Munchkin and were bred for stubby legs and as a result suffer from a **** ton of congenital birth defects including ****** joins that don't bend properly, heart problems, prone to infections and a musculature and spinal structure not designed for being that low the ground.
User avatar #101 to #11 - victorybell (06/10/2014) [-]
I'm against it too, but at least it's not as bad as the dog versions.
#13 to #11 - anon (06/10/2014) [-]
But their legs are too stubby to jump around on all your **** #worth
#49 to #9 - anon (06/10/2014) [-]
Actually cats aren't the only ones with a non articulated shoulder. As a matter of fact I can only recall that primates and humans have that (as far as land mammals go). But it has nothing to do with their back problems.

They have similar genetic faults that dachshunds and corgis have.

They made Munchkin cats by horrendously inbreeding them.

I love cats. I haven't been without a cat since I was 3 years old. Life just doesn't feel complete without a kitty for me.

Any time people breed animals to have ridiculous traits like this it always causes health problems. If you want to get a cat/dog/other pet, just get one that isn't entirely bred around some stupid gimmick.

corgi's do pretty well unless they get fat, and they only get fat if they're really good at begging. I've owned several corgi's, and the only one that ever got back problems was the one who got a little to greedy about begging to guests/stealing dropped food.

But the munchkin cats The cats with really short legs are caused by a naturally occurring mutation. Goddamn I love Wikipedia.
