Munchkin
Due to a genetic mutation, the Munchkin has very short legs. For this reason, this breed needs special care to avoid problems with the spine. The name of the breed comes from the inhabitants of the city of Munchkin, taken from the book The Wonderful Wizard of Oz of L. Frank Baum.

Savannah
The Savannah is a cross between the serval (wild feline) and the domestic cat. Being a hybrid, it tends to have a fairly wild character. These cats are among the few who do not hate water, so much so that they play with it or, in some cases, dive.
