The Selkirk Rex is a breed of domestic cat with a unique, curly coat. Originally developed in Montana in the late ’80s, the Selkirk Rex is known for its soft, plush coat and playful personality. Selkirk Rex cats are rare, you don’t see a lot of them, but you can find them in almost every country.
The Selkirk Rex has a medium to large build, with a round head and wide-set eyes. Its coat can come in a variety of colors and patterns, including solid, tabby, and calico. The breed’s most distinctive feature, however, is its curly coat, which can be anything from loose curls to tight ringlets. There are shorthair and longhair types of this breed. This breed is not good for people with allergies because they shed a lot.
Overall, the Selkirk Rex is a unique and affectionate breed that is well-suited for families and individuals looking for a companion with a playful personality and low-maintenance grooming needs. And they’re so cute!
