American Curl

The American Curl has distinctive curled ears that form a graceful arc, giving an alert, perky expression. This breed is known as the “Peter Pan” of cats due to retaining its kittenlike personality throughout life. The Curl has two coat varieties, shorthair and longhair. With her outstanding temperament, the Curl is a people-oriented breed that makes an affectionate soul mate and easily adjusts to other pets and children.
Living Considerations
  • Good for multi-pet households
  • Not hypoallergenic
Did you know?
The American Curl has an autosomal dominant ear curling gene that is responsible for the breed’s famous curled ears. Kittens are born with straight ears that begin to curl backward after three to five days.
