Singapura History history

The Singapura descended from a native cat of Singapore. Also known as the "drain cat" because of its habitat in Singapore's culverts, it is a recently acknowledged cat. It is still comparatively rare. Ironically, the Singapore government that had eliminated cat habitats, declared the Singapura to be a "living national monument." Singapura cat statues adorn the river and Singapuras are a large part of Singapore's promotions.

It was first introduced to the Cat Fanciers Association in 1981 by an American couple who brought back three local cats to the United States in the early 1970s and began to breed them. It has also been documented that a cat acquired at a pound is a legitimate progenitor of Singapuras. Early breeders were intensely committed to legitimizing the cat. The first Grand Champion earned his title very soon after the Singapura was accepted in 1988 as a natural breed.
