In the past, we’ve always yearned for our feline companion to remain small and adorable forever. However, as with humans, kittens eventually grow up and mature into adult cats. Yet, there exists a unique and exceptional kitten that defies this norm and will remain miniature in size for their entire life.
Introducing Munchie, an adorable 7-month-old cat who still looks like a little kitten. Weighing in at only 1.7 kg, he’s a unique feline due to his rare hypoparathyroidism condition. But don’t let that fool you – Munchie is full of love and always brings joy to those around him.
Last September, an abandoned cat named Munchie was discovered and taken to a veterinary clinic in Wolverhampton. Emily Tomlinson became his new owner after meeting him there. It is believed that his previous owners abandoned him because of his cloudy eyes, but this condition does not hinder his vision or daily activities.
Emily, who is currently employed at a veterinary clinic, narrated that she took in a cat that was brought to their practice by a woman who found it near a park. After fostering the cat for a week, Emily decided to adopt it since no one came forward to claim ownership.
After finally getting comfortable in his new abode, Munchie’s behavior started to raise some concerns for Emily. She quickly took him to the veterinarian where they discovered that he was suffering from hypoparathyroidism. Unfortunately, this meant that Munchie would remain small and maintain his current weight of 1.7 kg for the remainder of his life.
While the exact duration of his life remains uncertain, Emily is determined to never abandon him. She will provide him with utmost care and ensure that he experiences a fulfilling life.
Emily expressed her gratitude and happiness for having Munchie as a pet. She described him as having a mischievous personality, always seeking affection and cuddles. It was also revealed that Munchie enjoys playing with his kitten toys.
In spite of all the challenges, this young boy is living his best life alongside his mom and furry siblings. We want to express our appreciation to Emily for her unwavering love and attention towards Munchie!
