Munchkins are playful, outgoing and it is said that they maintain their kitten-like personality well into adulthood. It is said that Munchkins are easily trainable. They are social, affectionate and get along well with people, including children and other animals and make a fantastic family pet. Despite their small stature, the Munchkin can run and jump just like any other cat. They have a similar movement to ferrets.They can sit on their hind legs when they stand up while keeping their body perfectly balanced. By standing up, they are able to look around at a higher vantage point. Also, because of their short legs, Munchkins exhibit a hopping-like gait which is very darling and amusing to watch.
