An endearing baby-doll face set upon a low-slung body ensures that the Minuet will quickly capture your heart. A man-made breed, still in the early stages of development, the short-legged Minuet is known as a Standard, its long-legged counterpart, a Nonstandard. Derived from the combination of its two parent breeds, Persian and Munchkin, the Minuet has the Munchkin to thank for its short legs but claims the majority of its traits from the Persian Group (Persians, Exotic and Himalayan). As such, it beautifully serves its dual purpose as a loving, laid-back companion, and a glamorous showpiece. At this time, only Minuet Standards are eligible to be shown. The Minuet Nonstandard, however, is just as valuable, both as a loving companion and an important part of any Minuet breeding program.
The Minuet is a charming, extremely affectionate, and people-oriented cat. They have the gentleness of the Persian and the energy and curiosity of the Munchkin. Their big eyes and sweet faces give them a look of complete innocence, while their inquisitiveness can land them in all kinds of trouble! While gentle, they are also self-starting when it comes to activity and can navigate the tightest of corners at breakneck speed, their low center of gravity definitely coming into play
In appearance, the first thing you notice is the sweet face, and then the short legs. While derived from the Persian and the Munchkin, the Minuet is a distinct breed with its own characteristic look. The head is generally round, with big round eyes, topped with smallish ears with rounded tips. The muzzle and nose are short, blending into the forehead with a gentle slope when viewed in profile. While short in stature, this is by no means a “miniature” cat. The Minuet’s boning should be significant and its body sturdy and substantial. The coat of the Minuet, while not as massive as the Persian’s can be, is abundant and dense in both long- and short-hairs. While not overwhelming in its upkeep, the Minuet’s coat does well with daily combing, an activity much enjoyed by the Minuet and one which, if done faithfully, should take no longer than a few minutes. In essence, the Minuet, a darling cat with a darling personality.
