There are a few health concerns that come up in ethical debates surrounding teacup cats as well. In order to achieve the tiny size that characterizes teacup cats, a lot of breeders resort to inbreeding the cats. This is a very quick way to get results, but creates cats with a lot of health issues. In addition to this, it raises a whole host of ethical dilemmas. Teacup cats are simply small cats However, they are fully-grown, and will exhibit adult-like behaviors. It’s important to never forget that your teacup kitten is actually a fully-grown cat, and treat him like such.
Unlike human, cats enjoy small space & don't mind to be in "economy class."
Here, Jumbo Pillow climbs into his favorite spot, a cute jumbo teacup. You can see how he managed to fit in it, & how his body fills the whole cup. He enjoys napping in this tight space.
Jumbo is definitely not a teacup kitten, he is 7 lbs now at 7 months, as heavy as other adult cats we have. He's a chubby big boy.
Speaking of teacup, some have asked us for advice of where to get kittens. Some breeders advertised kittens as teacup, a term that may sound attractive as it makes it sound like your kitten will remain small. But from our experience, it's a deceiving term because it could mean the kitten is the smallest of the litter & may be prone to serious health problems such as hernias that impede its growth to normal weight . Getting a teacup kitten could eventually cost you a lot in vet bills, not to mention an anxious heart.

that can be used to determine if a cat truly meets the “teacup” definition. While standard female adult cats weigh 11-14 pounds, with toy female cats weighing 7-9 pounds.While there are other cat breeds that use the term Teacup Cat, we will focus on the Persian breed, more specifically Persians with a traditional style face (aka doll face) and body structure. A standard traditional doll face Persian cat can weigh 12+ pounds with a large body and bone structure comparable to a basic domestic longhair cat. A doll face Persian Teacup Cat can weigh half that size at adult weight with a smaller bone structure. How is this possible? By making the right pairing choices generation after generation, experienced doll face Persian cat breeders were able to create a doll face Persian cat with a more cobby, short, petite body - thus a doll face Teacup Persian Kitten. The significant bone and body structure change from tall and long to short and compact is what makes a doll face Teacup Persian Kitten, a teacup.For males, standard adult cats weigh 12-17 pounds. Male adult toy cats range between 8-10 pounds, and true teacup males weigh in the range of 3-7.5 pounds.Genuine miniature cat breeds are a relatively new development in the cat fancy though there are several small cat breeds. Adult Singapura males weigh approx 6 lb (2.7 kg) and females weigh as little as 4 lb (1.8 kg). Some healthy adult female Siamese cats weigh only as 5 lb (2.26 kg) though some male Siamese can reach 20 lb (9 kg). Some Siamese breeding lines give smaller, more "fragile-looking" cats than others and the old-style Siamese cats are more robust than the rather skinny modern version of this breed. The Mei-Toi was once advertised (1990s) as a genetically miniature cat with no accompanying details. Latest information is that the Mei-Toi is now bred with Munchkins as the Mei Toi Munchkin. Of late, a Miniature Cat Register has been set up in the USA, but it is not affiliated with any major cat organisation, nor does it maintain genuine feline pedigrees. It defines cats in terms of height rather than weight (with short-legged breeds being exceptions to the guidelines!) with an adult Teacup cat standing no taller than 5-6 " at the shoulder while a Toy is up to 8" at the shoulder. It considers height a better guideline than weight because weight also depends on the cat's build (this link is provided solely for information and is not an endorsement of the Register; owners should make their own decision as to the credibility, or otherwise, of this or any other miniature cat register.)
