Selkirk Rex cats are relatively young breed, recognition of which took place in 1992. To create this breed, several cat breeds were used, including American smooth-haired cats and Persians.
If you talk about the appearance of this breed, the Selkirk Rex cats, thanks to their thick curly hair, look like real bears or sheep. They are distinguished by their rather friendly disposition and their devotion to their owners. Color Selkirk Rex can be very diverse: from a single color to spots and stripes.
The nature of the Selkirk Rex includes the characteristics of all the breeds of cats that were used for their breeding. Pretty open ease, present in the character of the British Shorthair, is ideally combined with the softness and balance of the Persians and playfulness, which is inherent in the exotic Shorthair. Selkirk Rex is not afraid of any extraneous sounds: they are completely indifferent to the ring at the door and the humming of the vacuum cleaner.
In general, this is a very amazing creation, you can admire them endlessly. By the way, Selkirk Rex kittens are born with charming soft curls that grow into real chic curls in the process of growing up, and their mustaches are funny twisted and stick in different directions. In some cases, a kitten can be born almost smooth-haired with a slightly wavy hair, but this feature completely disappears with time.
Due to their charming curly hair, the Rex cat breed constantly needs careful care for it, therefore, to maintain its appearance, the cat must be constantly combed using a comb and a brush for this purpose. They are pretty easy to contact and get along well with all the other animals in the house, be it cats or dogs.
These charming cats are completely unafraid of strangers and feel completely independent in any unfamiliar environment. In addition, due to their amazing nature, they can win the heart of anyone, so there is no doubt that this breed will continue its development.
