Coexistence is important that you have with your new friend. Before considering the acquisition of a cat of the breed “Minskin cat” you know certain factors. You must take into account their character, their need for exercise, their interaction with other pets, their care and if you have small children, their level of tolerance towards them. Minskin cats have Boston roots.
Cat fancier Paul McSorley wanted to create a cat with points of fur similar to the color points on a Siamese. Beginning in 1998, he crossed a hairless Sphynx with a Munchkin and later crossed Burmese and Devon Rex cats.
He achieved his desired result in 2000. Breeding efforts continued, and by 2005 there were 50 new cats.
According to The Cat Encyclopedia, the name is a combination of the words “miniature” and “skin.”
Because the cats are still considered a new breed, the International Cat Association is monitoring the development of the breed (Minskins are not listed on the Cat Fanciers’ Association website).
The Minskin began development in 1998 in Boston, Massachusetts and the first cat of the desired Minskin type was born in July 2000. By 2005, about 50 breed-standard Minskins existed with a further 100 Minskin variants (short-legged cats can produce long-legged offspring).
