American Wirehair

Your guests might be surprised when I run up to greet them, and they’ll really be taken aback when they pet me! My thick wiry coat forms ringlets that give it a hard, springy feel unlike any other breed. It comes in a variety of colors and patterns and requires grooming only during the spring shedding season.

I’m a good-natured cat who enjoys affection but isn’t needy—though I’m quite sensitive to when people might need some emotional closeness. I will follow you around to keep an eye on what you’re doing. I’m social but can quietly entertain myself with a game. I do have a clownish sense of humor and am generally more active than my American Shorthair cousins.

I’m a medium-sized cat with an agile build and robust health. With proper care I’ll be serving as the family welcome wagon and loving companion for 14 to 18 years.
