skookumThe original Skookum was the result of an accidental breeding between a Munchkin and a LaPerm.

The Skookum’s distinctive short legs are the result of the Munchkin?’ autosomal dominant gene mutation which has occurred several times in the domestic cat. The curly hair is the product of breeding to cats possessing the dominant LaPerm curly hair gene.

Skookums are outgoing and respond well to being handled.

CATZ Inc recognises this breed for full Championship Status.
