This is one of the rare cat breeds. The name is interesting. Read about the naming of the dwarf cats. The Lambkin in a cross between the Selkirk Rex, a cat with normal leg length, and the Munchkin, the founding dwarf cat. The breed was created by Jeri Newman in the USA. The cat above would appear to be a dilute calico in which case she is female. Notice the front legs, which are considerably shorter than the hind legs and the lean forwards. This is reminiscent of the Manx and Cymric. See all the dwarf cats.
