Short description

The Singapura is one of the smallest cat breeds. She has a friendly and loyal character. Although she is very lively, she is a suitable indoor-cat, if she has enough space and different possibilities to play. She does not like to be left alone and follows her attachment figuer wherever she can. Although she can be shy in the beginning, she becomes a loving companion once she trusts her owner. Small children have to be careful not to hurt her and accept her boundaries.

This information is indicative and adheres to the breed standard. Each animal is an individual and has a personal character, as well as its own needs. Thus, a breed is not a guarantee of certain behaviors, etc.
