The Singapura cat was originated from Singapore and its name means Lion City, the local Malay name for their island. This cat was also known as the ‘drain cat’ because of its habit of sleeping in drains and living in the gutters.
This is also the reason given for the cat’s small size, this cat is the world’s smallest breed of cat.
This cat breed is thought to have existed for about 300 years and is descended from cats from all over the world that arrived in Singapore on ships and bred with the local cats.
This cat is the smallest domestic cat breed. This cat is known for her saucer-sized eyes outlined in black, her oversized ears, and her unique coloring. Singapura cat breed comes in only one color—a singular, sepia-toned coat created by hair that has at least two bands of dark ticking separated by light bands, ending with a dark tip.

The Singapura cat might be small, but it is a curious, highly intelligent, and active breed that thrives on the attention of her family.
These cats are muscular and love to climb and experiment. They want to help with everything, they will help you in cooking, clean, and help you make the beds as long as you don’t mind little furry lumps under the covers.
Feeding & Grooming
Feeding: Every cat is unique and each has their particular likes, dislikes, and needs when it comes to food.
Cats are carnivores and every cat must obtain 41 different nutrients from their food. Proper nutrients will vary depending on age and overall health, so an energetic kitten needs a different balance of nutrients in her diet than a less active senior cat.
Grooming: These cats with their short, close-lying coats, do not require a lot of grooming. However, they will enjoy brushing with a soft brush and the attention that comes with it.
