Is The Munchkin Breed The Right Fit For Your Home?

black and white munchkin cat

The Munchkin cat is a fairly recent breed distinguished by its extremely tiny legs, which are the consequence of a genetic abnormality.

Munchkins, other than their unique legs, are similar to any other species and can have a short or long coat in nearly any color or pattern. Grooming is not essential for shorter-haired Munchkins, but mild grooming may be required for long-haired cats.

They also have huge, walnut-shape eyes that can be virtually any hue, just like their coat. They are a small to medium breed with a weight range of 2–4 kg (approx 4.5 pounds) and 19–21 cm (approx. 8 inches) height. Their life expectancy is between 12 and 14 years. But this is not all the information you need about this particular breed. If you want to adopt or buy one, you need to know additional details as well.

I spent an extended Pride Weekend relaxing at a friend’s vacation home  in The Hamptons. Activities mostly involved us floating in the pool, eating, and then taking long walks to work off whatever we had just eaten or were about to eat. We also did some driving to nearby hamlets like East Hampton, West Hampton, and Sag Harbor, which is the location of the gift shop where I found this Pink Glass Elephant. I have no idea of the price, but I can guarantee you it was not cheap.

Talk about an “Oh Wow” factor that is just off the charts! This breathtaking, Pink Fantasy Window Display at the Buffalo Exchange vintage clothing store stopped me dead in my tracks.

Pink Apron Dress

As if the above Pink Apron Dress wasn’t eye-catching enough, the window dressers accessorized the mannequin’s outside with vintage toys, and more toys were strewn as the base of the display. It was like Christmas, Easter and Halloween all in one display!

If you happen to take the N, R or Q trains to the Fifth Avenue and 59th Street stop on your way to the Central Park Zoo, be sure to first participate in the underground Subway Art Safari that’s going on in the station, as you will not only encounter this colorful flock of Parrots, but also tiles mosaic murals of Penguins, Horses, Monkeys and other creatures.

The 5th Avenue and 59th Street Subway Stop of the N, Q and R Trains lets you off just few blocks from the entrance to the Central Park Zoo, and you can enjoy a bit of urban safari even before you exit the station which features a collection of colorful tile mosaic murals of various animals that you might find in the zoo or in and around the park. Check out this family of monkeys!

This family of happy Penguins can be found right by the stairs as you exit from the N, Q and R Trains at 59th Street (Central Park South) and Fifth Avenue. This also the stop you would take to get to the Central Park Zoo.

Jonathan LeVine Gallery Presents: Alessandro Gallo, For Some Reason

Elevator

If you are intrigued and delighted by the idea of perusing an exhibition made up of hyper-realist sculptures depicting Humans with Animal Heads, then you will love Italian artist Alessandro Gallo’s latest body of work, For Some Reason (the follow up to his 2014 show, Strani Incontri) up now at Jonathan LeVine Gallery.

If these petite ceramic figures cause you to do a double take, it might be because Gallo bases each of his hybrid characters on real life models, and his attention to detail is meticulous.

Elevator Left Side

Easily the most popular piece in the show is this miniature glass Elevator, crowded with various breeds of anthropomorphic birds, along with a Buffalo, a Cat and a Deer, all eager to get to the their destination floor. Elevator is a private client commission that was loaned to the gallery for this exhibit. It is pretty sweet.
