CFA Breed Profile: Singapura

Singapura is the Malaysian word for Singapore. The streets of Singapore are the origin of this breed. They are nature’s combination of both the ticked coat pattern and the dark brown color, both of which are indigenous to South East Asia. The breed was brought into the U.S. in the early 1970s by Hal and Tommy Meadow, expatriates moving home. Early Singapura breeders quickly went to work to establish purebred characteristics such as breeding true, uniformity of appearance, and above all, health and disposition. This careful development of the breed has lead to small numbers of diversified pedigreed cats but one that is widely desired and accepted. Today the breed is worldwide and recognized by most registration associations. In CFA, Singapuras were accepted for registration in 1982 and for championship competition in 1988.

CFA Breed Article:
The Singapura — Cat Fanciers' Almanac April/May 2005

THE SINGAPURA
by Nicki Ruetz

GC, BW, NW Sayang Princess Diana My first introduction to the Singapura was an article in the 1987 Cat Fancy titled «Hard-To-Find Breeds.» I was so intrigued by the picture and the description, I just had to find out more. I ended up with my first Singapura, a pet, and he was everything the article said and more. I became so enthralled with the breed that I joined the cat fancy to help promote and preserve the Singapura, and also because I wanted my home to be graced by several of these special cats.

Most inquiries Singapura breeders receive about pets are from people who have only seen pictures and read descriptions, just like myself many years ago. They fall in love with that cute round Singapura head, large eyes and ears and that mischievous twinkle in their eyes. Their delicate look and angelic face can be deceiving — they live up to that twinkle. Singapuras are very tuned-in to the people around them and insist on being in the middle of everything.

The Singapura — Cat Fanciers' Almanac March 1996

THE SINGAPURA
by Cathie McHenry

Singapura «The best kept secret in the cat fancy!» These were the words of Mary Ann Mehren, an established Abyssinian breeder, when she obtained her first Singapura. Pet owners gush that it was «well worth the wait» for their Singapuras. What makes these cats so special? Initially, it is their deceptively delicate appearance with that angelic face; but the true hook is the Singapura’s enchanting personality. To those of us lucky enough to work with the breed there is simply nothing like a Singapura.
