Thank you for your interest in the Minuet/Napoleon Cat. The breed is known by two names, depending on the registering body: Minuet or Napoleon. As a rose by any other name is just as sweet, so too the Minuet-Nap, which is how we will refer to them here. The Minuet-Nap is a hybrid cat, a combination of the Persian and Munchkin groups. Its creation was begun in 1995 and now, 23 years later, we have reached championship status in several registering bodies. Our goal for this website is purely an educational one. We hope you will enjoy your visit to our website, and find it to be enlightening and informative, leaving you even more enamored with this most unique and beautiful breed.
