Cat Napoleon, also known as Menet, was developed by crossing the manchkins with Persian cats. The miniature look of Napoleon makes it look like Pekingese or Corgi in the world of cats.
The breed has a round face with large eyes and vertical ears,fluffy coat and tail, as well as short paws. Napoleons are known for their modest behavior and can be a constant source of joy and laughter for their masters.
History of the
breed For the first time, Napoleon was brought to the US by Joseph Smith, a breeder of basset-hounds. One of Joseph's favorite breeds of cats was a manchkin, but he decided that the short-breed breed was practically no different from many others. As a result, in the mid-90s, Joseph decided to create a new breed that would have its own unique features, distinct from all other cats, long-sleeved, and short-haired.
As an additional breed Smith picked up a Persian cat, because it has a rather exotic appearance and an unusual shape. As a result, as planned, Napoleon got a unique wool coupled with short paws.
In January 2015, after voting in the International Cats Association, Napoleon's name was changed to Menet. However, the breed is still regarded as Napoleon in many other international organizations.
