Acquired: Breeder (hobby breeder)
Posted May 07, 2012
The American Curl is a lively, playful cat that would fit well into most homes. They have very few health problems due to the careful breeding by most breeders. While not as "cuddly" as their naked counterparts, the Elf Cats, they are sweet and enjoy staying close to their owners. The short haired variety is very easy to maintain. Even the long haired Curls have more of a silky coat that does not lend itself to heavy matting. They are quite adaptable- our "Kesha" came to us (to Atlanta) from Russia and was ready for her first show only a week later. With their unique curly ears and a look that makes them appear to always be smiling, the American Curl will win your heart!
