Selkirk Rex

Look at that coat!

By: Kelly Caldwell


This large, heavy-boned cat originated in Montana in the 1980s, where one kitten in a stray’s litter had an unusual, curly coat. That cat was bred to a Persian and through the years type and temperament were established. The Selkirk Rex’s curly coat is soft, wooly, and loosely curled—the latter being a trait that is more evident on the longhaired variety. His head is round as are his large eyes. Another hallmark of the breed is his distinct muzzle, whose length is equal to half of its width.
