American Curl

Home > Cats > Breeds
Country of Origin: United States

The American Curl has very unique ears which actually curl or fold back away from the face of the cat. This of course is where the American Curl gets its name from. When the kittens are first born their ears go straight up like most cats but within a week or so they begin to exhibit the curl. Within a few months the kittens ears are curled as far back as they every will and will stiffen up in that position.

This breed of cat has only been around since the early 1980's and was entered into shows soon thereafter. It can be found in both longhair and shorthair versions.
