Selkirk Rex Cat

Selkirk Rex Cat

Selkirk Rex is a known for its unique curly fur. This new curly breed was first discovered in the USA in 1987. The curly kittens were bred to Persian, British and Exotics to develop the Selkirk Rex lines. A worker in an animal shelter noticed a cat with a unique curly coat and gave her to a Persian breeder named Jeri Newman. This breed is one of three breeds of Rex cats. The word "Rex" is a name that has through usage come to refer to the fur of the cat that is different to the normal.

Selkirk Rex is a medium to large size breed with a round head similar to the British Shorthair. Selkirk Rex comes in both long and short hair. A Selkirk kitten is curly at birth, then loses its curliness and slowly acquires it again at 8 to 10 months of age. Fify percent of the offspring of a matting between the this cat breed and a non-curly cat breed will be Selkirk Rex cats. Selkirks come in a variety of colors. The face of a Selkirk Rex is a little like a Traditional Persian, rounded with a short muzzle.

The appearance of this breed is the first you can notice, but these cats also make champion companions. They are fun loving and affectionate in nature. They are very playful, and enjoy a good game of fetch. Selkirks cats really show love and loyalty for their human companions. Because they are very social, they don’t want to be left alone for long periods. Selkirks fit in well with other family members including children, and usually get along well with other companion animals.
