Selkirk Rex

Do you like to have the latest new thing that comes on the market? Well if so, I’m one of the newest natural cat breeds, with a distinctive wooly, curly coat. Affectionate but not needy, I’m a gentle and mellow cat who easily goes with the flow. I love to be around people and can get upset when left alone. I’m a clown but can also be crafty, slyly opening forbidden cabinets.

I’m a hearty medium-sized cat weighing 10 to 15 pounds. I have big round eyes, and my coat may be short or long and comes in many colors and patterns. I do require more grooming than most cats; brush me a couple times a week to avoid matting.

My health is generally good, though I can get hip dysplasia, kidney disease, and common feline heart disease. With proper care my fluffy curls will be tickling your fingers for 10 to 15 years.
