Top 4 Curly Cat Breeds:
Selkirk Rex Cats
The Selkirk cat breed is the first Rex cat we have seen so far with a normal hair length. It comes in a variety of colors, including pointed, sepia and of course the popular tuxedo print. These cats are very popular for their plush appearance that attracts children en masse. It is a relaxed breed with characteristics similar to those of a Brit with short hair.
The Cornish Rex is another breed of almost hairless cats, and the few hairs that have curls give the cat an almost wavy look. At first glance, the hair of these cats looks artificial, and only when you express it, do you learn the truth. Cats are soft, friendly and always looking for a warm body to help them warm up. These cats often hide under the blankets of beds made to keep warm, and it is extremely easy to lose the cat if you don’t know this hiding place.
The Devon Rex is a breed of almost hairless cats, but the short hair is curly and gives the cat a unique look. It has a big air and a silly and playful temperament that makes it a great family pet. Kids and adults will love spending time with him and will love rubbing their legs.
The LaPerm can get its name from its curly coat, which resembles the popular hairstyle of the same name. It is available worldwide, including the United States, and despite having a unique name, it is a member of the Rex family that makes all other frilly leathers. It is a medium-sized cat with a muscular body that likes to be surrounded by people, especially children. It is a relatively recent breed that won its first competition in the United States in May or 2009.
As you can see, there are not many curly breeds that you need to know about it, and the ones that exist belong to the Rex family. These cats are very friendly and would make a wonderful addition to any family. If you’ve never had a cat with almost no hair, it may take you some time to get used to its behavior. Unlike other breeds that spend their time hunting, these cats look for ways to stay warm, which usually involves cuddling with you.
