Selkirk Rex


Photos from LaPurr’fect Cattery

The Selkirk Rex has a round, full cheek head; medium ears set wide, and large round eyes.  The coat is thick and plush, and falls in loose curls.  The difference in coat length is most apparent on the tail and ruff — the longhair’s is not as plush as the shorthair.
