Previously, it was believed that this species actually came from Singapore, the citistate island. However, recent research has shown that they had been actually imported from the U.S. Nowadays, most people still consider Singapore is their authentic origin since the species has become Singapore’s signature house cat.

#2. These Cats Are Rare And Expensive

Among other common species, Singapura cats are definitely rarer. Well, Singapore sounds luxurious already. A kitty might cost you up to $2,000 from the breeder. In exchange, you got to pet a beautifully short-haired little cat. 

#3. The Singapura Cat Size: They Are Officially The World’s Smallest House Cat Species

Normally, a house cat might range from 4 to 8 kg in weight. A Maine Coon might even reach 10 kg. Singapura cats are Asians otherwise. Therefore, they are notably smaller than usual. A male is around under 4 kg and a female is roughly 2 kg, making them the tiniest domesticated cats in the whole world. In comparison, they are somehow equal to a 8-month-old British longhaired cat. 

#4. The Singapura Cat Characteristics Are Interesting

Despite their humble size, their personalities are another story. Unlike their relatives who are known as lazy, laidback, inactive pets, they are more similar to their biggest enemies: dogs. Adopting a cat of this species means preparing to be interrupted anytime. They just do not care whether you are busy with your phone, your laptop or your book. They like to attract attention every time. Fortunately, these cats are not really noisy. They are just more active than usual cats and that’s all. It might be suitable for people who are fond of dynamic pets and love play around all the time.

#5. Is Singapura cat friendly? Their Friendliness Might Surprise You.

A Singapura cat is extremely friendly and extroverted. Therefore, they get along well with other pets around the house, especially other cats. However, as mentioned above, their playfulness might get them into trouble unless their partners do not find it annoying. They are also great friends for kids as they are basically kids. And they will stay playful forever notwithstanding their ages. 

#6. What Are Their Colors?
