Singapura Cat Breed

This friendly cat loves to be the center of attention and will always be there with you to welcome your guests.

The distinctive ticked coat of this little cat caught the eye of an American scientist, Hal Meadow, while he was working in Singapore in the 1970s. Meadow and his wife started a breeding program for the Singapura, which they carried out both in Singapore and the US.

By the 1990s, British breeders were also taking an interest in this cat. Singapuras are now known worldwide, although they are still very rare.

Small in size but big in personality, these cats are prying and mischievous, happiest when exploring the world at a high level from a shelf or an owner’s shoulder.
