Get to know the Singapura
All you need to know about the breed
The sepia-toned Singapura’s wide-eyed, big-eared appearance gives this little cat an air of curiosity. And once you get to know the breed you’ll find that first impression borne out by their personalities.
Playful and inquisitive, small but strong Singapuras are always on the go, whether it’s climbing, chasing, batting, exploring… if there’s fun to be had, they are there. The breed is just beautiful, with their elegant looks dramatically at odds with their humble origins – some Singapore strays or “drain cats” that were brought to America in the 1970s and formed the basis for the breed. They have short glossy coats in warm, creamy tones with darker brown “ticking” (two-toned hair) on their back, face and tail as well as huge, appealing almond-shaped eyes and oversized ears.
Singapuras are gregarious cats who prefer to be around their human families so they are best suited to homes where they won’t be left alone for extended periods. They get on well with other household pets and with children too.
Singapuras are certainly no shrinking violets – you might need to listen hard to hear their little miaow but they will certainly communicate with you.
