Selkirk Rex Cat Breed Profile
Selkirk Rex History
This new curly breed was first discovered in the USA in 1987. A worker in an animal shelter noticed a cat with a unique curly coat and gave her to a Persian breeder named Jeri Newman. That cat named Miss DePesto was bred to a Persian and her first litter contained 3 straight coated kittens and 3 kittens with this unique soft curly coat. The curly kittens were bred to Persian, British and Exotics to develop the Selkirk Rex lines.
Selkirk Rex Personality
One first may be attracted to the Selkirkís cute, curly exterior, but these cats also make champion companions.
They are curious, tolerant, extremely sociable cats that
enjoy spending time with their preferred persons. People-oriented without being
clingy, Selkirks have a generous measure of love and loyalty for their human
companions. Selkirks fit in well with other family members including children,
and usually get along well with other companion animals. Because they are very
social, they donít do well in isolation or when left alone for long periods.
