Monchichi: Munchkin or Myth?

(Update: Monchichi has been ADOPTED! WOOT! But you should read this anyway)


Where do I begin? Monchichi. Let's start with the name. This ridiculous little cat got it's name from this...


I actually did not know what the heck this was, but thanks to the endless bounds of the internets, I learned. Apparently it was this really popular monkey doll, that also had a short burst of a television show in the '80s. Well, staff thought that our cat bore a resemblance...


 I suppose I can see there is a likeness, but frankly there is so much more in a small way about this cat. I had to do some major double takes and zoom ins...









Is that? What I think it is? A Munchkin breed cat?! In a shelter?! No way!

Munchkin as in...

No. Munchin as in this...

I seriously couldn't believe my eyes, but it's real! It's like the unicorn of cats, but with super short legs, and nothing but head rubs, and loud purrs! 

Oh my gawrd, I wants it!

If you don't trust these photos, well then, check out this video of Monchichi...

Okay. We've gawked at the tiny itty bitty legs of our Monchichi, but now it's time for y'all to come in and adopt this very nice cat. I can tell you he's a freaky cat in more than one way. He lets you rub his belly! YES! Full belly rubs with no swats of anger or vengeful scorns, just all purrs. No joke, this cat is a gem. Please come on down, Bob Barker style, and ask to meet this cat!
