The Singapura cat might be little, but the breed is certainly not delicate! This cat has a highenergy personality that shines. She is a curious, highly intelligent, and frisky breed that thrives on the attention of her family. Singapura cats are muscular and love to climb and explore. They want to be in the middle of the action and will be right by your side, for instance, while you do choresready to play if you thrust a duster in their direction.
One thing they don't like: loud noises. They can spook if they hear an unexpected loud noise so keep that in mind if you live in a noisy neighborhood, have kids prone to shrieking, or a dog that likes to bark.
Singapuras are generally of good health and have a life expectancy between eleven and fifteen years, though cats as old as eighteen have been recorded. Breeders are concerned, however, about the lack of genetic diversity in the breed. A study published in the journal Genomics, found the Singapura and Burmese cats have the least genetic diversity among the twentytwo breeds studied. Because of that concern, it is smart to adopt a Singapura cat from a reputable breeder who offers a written health guarantee. It's also important to note that it's possible to find Singapura cats occasionally at a shelter, so you should look there first.
