Named after the great conqueror with a height problem, the Napoleon breed doesn't have any hard feelings about its size. The breed is a mix of Munchkin and Persian cats. Napoleons are said to have the same relaxed and loving temperament as their Persian cousins. Additionally, because the breed was created to have less of a peke-faced look, Napoleons aren't likely to have as many health problems as Persians.
