The American Curl, as its name suggests, originated in the west coast of the United States in the early 80s. In fact, the first documented American Curl was actually a stray cat.
A distinguishing physical feature of the American Curl is its curly ears. This is a result of a random mutation.
The average American Curl will cost approximately $800-$1,200.
Personality-wise, the American Curl is extremely affectionate and enjoys being around humans. Additionally, it normally gets along with fellow cats as well.
The breed tends to be intelligent and does not vocalize as much as many other breeds do.
However, American Curl cats definitely need grooming, especially the long-haired ones.
