I'd love an elf for a pet- and a Bambino... BUT my house is full
Bambino's are a cross between the Munchkin and the Sphynx. Contrary to some of the information that has been provided in this thread there is no evidence of back and joint problems at all. Munchkins are actually noted to be a very hardy and healthy breed. The Munchkin has been around since the 1940's although not officially until 1964. If you are interested Wikipedia has information about the Munchkin Munchkin (cat) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Munchkin are very loving and wonderful pets without any long list of health concerns.
The Bambino are hairless like the Sphynx and short statured like the Munchkin. Bambino's although rare, are a cross between the Sphynx and the Munchkin. Please visit YouTube - Bambino Kitten if you would like to see some photos that I had the pleasure to take for my friend who happens to breed Bambinos.
Although they are different from the Sphynx because of their short stature they have the same personality type and are very friendly and affectionate and I would think they would make a most excellent pet.
I love this pic of Sheldon! Is his tail really that furry? It looks sooooo cute.
I also adore pink bambinos!
I saw the bambino "Cats 101" on YouTube--it was how I first learned of the breed--and I think they are INSANELY adorable. Like, almost too much to handle! Especially the "waddle"!!!! <3 <3 <3
