American Curl Characteristics
Of course, the first thing you’ll notice about the American Curl is her ears. All ears are not the same, some curling more than others with show cats having an almost rosebud appearance. It can take up to 16 weeks for the ears to take on their permanent look. Curls are born with straight ears, which began to curl at around three days old. The ears also have little tufts of hair extending from them which help create a great expression along with their big, round eyes. Curls are medium-sized cats that come in both with both long and short hair varieties. The tail on the long hair variety should be a full, gorgeous plume. Their hair is silky and lies flat, and since they have little to no undercoat, Curls hardly shed and are extremely easy to maintain. Curls come in all types of colors and patterns, but they all have an elegant appearance. Second, only to their curled ears is their sweet expression.
