The American Curl gained CFA acceptance and has purred its way into the hearts of judges and cat lovers all in a short time. The Curl originated in June 1981, when a spontaneous genetic mutation produced the breed’s signature backward-curling ears. By 1986, two of the largest cat registries recognized the breed. This whimsical feline can be found in longhair and shorthair varieties and a rainbow of patterns and colors.
