Photos from MIHIT Cattery by Mrs Barbara DeAngelo
The current American Curl descended from “Shulamith” (early-1980’s) owned by Joe and Grace Ruga of Lakewood, CA. This cat’s ears are it’s governing feature. They are firm to the touch, erect and open, curving up in a gentle, backwards curl. Its ears can be swiveled to point at each other. A round face with a silky coat that lies flat; not bushy. Long and plumed tail.
