Bell is a Minuet, a relatively recent breed, bred from Munchkins and a Persian cat, also known as Napoleon. That's right. There's a feline breed called that.

The Minuet cats are distinctively short, which is why they're named after Napoleon Bonaparte. But even though many of these cats have short legs, some will be born with long legs while still retaining all other unique physical features of the breed.

In addition to their small size, Minuet cats are known for their roundness, from round faces and large, round eyes to round bodies and strong muscles.

According to PetGuide:

"These cats have a broad, straight nose, which is another adorable feature that is different from the snub nose of a Persian."

"The thick coat of a Minuet cat can be long or short, but it is always lush and soft. The shorthaired cats have dense and plush fur, while the longhaired kitties in this breed will have a straight coat that is also soft but has a thick undercoat."

Minuet cats are affectionate and social, and they love to be around people. Like Persians, these cats are gentle, but they also have the curiosity and energy that typically comes with a Munchkin.

Because of their high energy levels, they love to play. So, they should be in households that nurture playfulness with plenty of attention and toys.

Napoleon cats are incredibly healthy, and they have fewer health-related problems than other cat breeds.

That's mostly because Minuet cats were bred to avoid the various health defects that Persian cats have, such as the excessive formation of tears, the blockage of tear ducts, flattened faces, as well as fur coats that tended towards matting.
