This are the current Napoleon Breed Standards.
This silhouette is a great
representation of the breed.
If you are in the market for a Purebred Pedigreed Napoleon, you need to understand a bit
about the cat's pedigree prior to purchase.  A Napoleon is a Hybrid between the Munchkin
Breed Group and the Persian Breed Group (Persian, Himalayan, Exotic Short Hair, Exotic
Long Hair).  Anything other than these cats in your Napoleon's pedigree for at least three
generations may not be what you are looking for.  The Napoleon is more than a "look".  It
is a unique cat with a very special temperament that comes from this particular mixture of
breeds.  If you are interested in Showing or Breeding your cat, we highly recommend you
do not purchase a kitten unless you have checked the pedigree and the kitten has at least
three generations of these acceptable outcrosses.  That is not to say that if you purchase
a kitten from a reputable breeder that has something else in it's pedigree, it won't be a
sweet healthy cat.  But, simple genetics tell you that different breeds have different
temperaments and health issues.  Demanding a Pedigreed Napoleon will ensure you are
getting the cat you want.  Know what you are getting prior to your purchase!  See our
Pedigreed Napoleon Breeders page for more information.

Napoleon Description
PLEASE DO NOT BUY A NAPOLEON KITTEN WITHOUT FIRST SEEING AT
LEAST A THREE GENERATION PEDIGREE ON THE PARENTS TO ENSURE
YOU ARE GETTING WHAT YOU ARE PAYING FOR!
OUR BEAUTIFUL NAPOLEONS HAVE HAD A VERY ROUGH YEAR.  A SMALL CONTINGENT OF FOLKS HAVE
CONVINCED TICA THAT THEY FIND THE NAME NAPOLEON TO BE OFFENSIVE AND TICA IS DEMANDING THAT
WE CHANGE THE NAME.  THOSE OF US WHO HAVE BEEN DEDICATED BREEDERS OF THE NAPOLEON WILL
NOT GIVE UP OUR NAME REGARDLESS OF THE OUTCOME.  WE HAVE CHOSEN TO LEAVE TICA OR TO DUAL
REGISTER OUR CATS WITH ANOTHER REGISTRY.  WE ARE THRILLED TO ANNOUNCE THAT CFF HAS
ACCEPTED THE NAPOLEON INTO THEIR REGISTRY AND ARE HAPPY TO HAVE US.  WE ARE EXCEPTIONALLY
HAPPY WITH OUR NEW HOME!!!  WHAT THAT MEANS TO OUR CLIENTS IS THAT ANY KITTEN YOU PURCHASE
FROM RESQME FARMS WILL STILL BE REGISTERED AS NAPOLEONS!

THE NAPOLEONS ARE A WORLD WIDE POPULAR CAT AND REGARDLESS OF WHAT ANY REGISTRY SAYS OR
DOES, THEY WILL CONTINUE TO THRIVE AND WE HERE AT RESQME FARMS WILL DO OUR PART BY
CONTINUING TO BREED THESE WONDERFUL CATS AND RESPECT WHO AND WHAT THEY ARE AND HAVE
BEEN FOR ALL THESE MANY YEARS - NAPOLEONS!
