Longhair introduction to American curl
The American Curl is one of America's indigenous races, a mid-size female with one-of-a-kind eyes that roll out and back in a charming arch, giving the female a uniquely watchful look. Curved and cheeky eyes give the cats a cheerful look that quickly puts a big face on anyone who sees them.
American Curl's history begins on a warm, sun-drenched June 1981 in Lakewood, California, when Joe and Grace Ruga found a longhaired silken cat with strange little eyes on their back doors. This loving kitty quickly became popular with the Ruga's and was called Shulamith and all American Curls go back to her.
Shulamith had her first kitten in December 1981 and two of the four had the same curled eyes as her mum. They started a global debate about the genetic makeup of the uncommon hair. In 1983 cats lovers developed selected pedigree programmes to preserve the genes and create a race from them.
Simultaneously the singular feminine females were introduced to present this seldom novelty in the cattery. Well-known British kitten genetics expert Roy Robinson worked with the breeder and analysed the results of 383 kitten from 81 catteries. In other words, every female with only one copy of the genes shows the characteristic.
Curly hair is a inquisitive, effusive and affectionate companion who looks for new challanges and adventure every where. You want to be with you all the way, whether you sleep in your bedroom at nights or curl up on your laps to see your favourite show. Her kittenish characters have given her the name Peter Pan of the cat.
There are American Curls in longhair and shorthaired and in a variety of colours. Whereas the wavy ear is the main characteristic of this particular race, the large walnut-shaped eye and the mid-size rectangle are other important features of the American Curl. The American Curls are all designed with straigth-eared. After 3-5 and a half day they begin to curl again into a rosebuds and unfold softly like a leaf of a roses until they have reached their definitive form after about 16 sabbaths.
There can be many different levels of ripples in the shape of the outer surface of the head, from almost flat to an arch of 90-180º. In order to guarantee the race's good genetics and variety, growers carry out crossbreeding with non-waved eared outcrosses. A minimum of 50% of this kitten have wavy hair.
100 percent of catkins in Curl to Curl kennels have wavy eyes. They still have the whole character of their waved brothers and are just as charming domestic animals. A crimping or curling motion of the heart influences the tissues of the brain, which remain solid when touched - it should never be rigid or flaccid.
It is important, however, that the ear is not broken and that the ear is never compelled into abnormal states. The American Curls are balance, middle size females with a round shaped skull, a strong catch and a strong whiskered pillow. You have an elegance, attentive look with a cute, open look and her noteworthy eard.
Both have a smooth, velvety coat, while the long-haired American Curl also has a nicely feathered cock.
