Color – Singapuras all have the same coloration – only one color is allowed – dark brown ticking on an old ivory ground color, the underside is the color of unbleached muslin.
Eyes – Eye color can be hazel, green or yellow.
Appearance – The Singapura is a small to medium cat with a ticked (agouti) coat. Ticking refers to the presence of bands of different color on the hair shaft. The coat is short, silky, and close lying. Some barring is shown on the inner front legs and back knees. The head should be rounded, medium length with good width at the eye level.
Personality – Singapuras enjoy their people. They are highly intelligent, active, and curious cats with the bonus of being quite affectionate. They love to be on you while you are watching TV or reading (preferably between you and what you are reading). Balancing the checkbook can become quite an adventure, and most prefer to sleep under the covers of your bed with you. If you are looking for a cat to just sit there and be admired, don’t even consider a Singapura. The Singapura is a very interactive cat that remains playful even when grown, and they get along remarkably well with other animals.
Interesting Breed Fact – The Singapura is still comparatively rare. Consequently, the availability of kittens varies.
