reena this breed is called Munchkin....even I came to know abt it only a year ago.....notice the short legs...I bet not many have seen it too.
My friends is a Munchkin breeder back here. It comes in either a Domestic long hair or a domestic short hair.....here is a brief introduction to the breed :-


The Munchkin cat is a relatively new created by a random mutation that produced a cat with extremely short legs. Munchkins have short or long coats in a wide variety of colours. Somewhat surprisingly, because of their short stature munchkins are particularly adept at climbing and jumping. They are usually raised as indoor cats, although they are reported to be extremely active, agile and fast runners. Those who have spent time around barns have proven to be extremely good hunters. The mutation only affects the length of the legs.
The breed was begun in 1983 when Sandra Hochenedel found an extremely short-legged black cat living under a trailer in Louisiana. The cat, Blackberry, was pregnant and half of her kittens were born short-legged. One of Blackberry's kittens, a tomcat named Tolouse, became the father of a breeding program and helped establish the breed in North America.

Pretty, suzy, Makcik means the cat. Of course, you are pretty too. :)

I like its tail. Is it always that straight up? It looks like the squirrel's tail. One more silly question: is every Munchkins has the exact look of the one you posted? :D Hope you don't mind answer. Thanks. :p

No the tail is not always straight up. Muchkins don’t have the exact looks in a sense that they come in different colours/markings…etc. But Muchkins means short legs cats (important facts). Notice that Nur's God daughter (Kelly) has similar colour but it’s not a Munchkin…it’s a domestic semi long hair cat.
