The Singapura is truly, a different kind of cat. If you have always wanted an easy to care for, affectionate, playful, gregarious, follow-you-everywhere kind of cat, then the Singapura is the cat for you. These tiny felines are fun, friendly and thrive on love and attention.
The Singapura is one of the smallest cat breeds. The males grow to be 5 to 7 pounds and the females average 4 to 6 pounds. Even though they are small, they are mighty! They are athletic, smart, playful, busy, interactive and very friendly.
Singapuras come in one color called Sable Ticked Tabby or Seal Sepia Agouti, depending on which registry you affiliate with, which is a warm ivory background with brown tipping on the body and tail hairs. The underside is solid cream. Some singpuras have “jewelry” in the form of banding on the fronts of their legs. Singapuras have very large eyes in relation to their face size. A compact body, medium lengthed, blunt-tipped tail and slender legs ending in small feet complete the package.
The Singapura is a rare breed of cat developed by Hal and Tommy Meadow after discovering these special cats in Singapore. It is a relatively healthy breed of cat. But there are hereditary conditions that should be checked for by the breeder. Heart, Kidney and Liver conditions are among some of them. Some of these conditions can be tested for by DNA tests or ultrasound testing. Because of their small size, there can be difficulties breeding Singapuras. They tend to have small litters and some queens have difficulty giving birth.
Calcatta Singapuras is a small hobby cattery located in central California. We love our singapuras as cherished family pets therefore they live in our home with us and all of our kittens are raised underfoot with constant socialization. We occasionally present our cats at shows through The International Cat Association (TICA). You can read more about the TICA Singapura breed description here: http://www.tica.org/public/breeds/sg/intro.php . We hope to help to preserve this rare and special breed of cat through thoughtful selection of breeding stock that is chosen for being an excellent example of the Singapura Standard and that has been thoroughly health screened by board certified veterinarians and DNA testing.
