American Curl Breed Synopsis




  American Curl LH Breed Standard

  American Curl SH Breed Standard





The distinctive feature of the American Curl is its uniquely attractive curled ears.  Curls are well balanced, moderately muscled, slender - rather than massive - in build.  They are alert and active with a gentle, even disposition.  Acceptable patterns include Solids, Shades, Smokes, Tabbys Tortoiseshells, Bicolors, Particolors, and Pointeds in most colors.

The American curl comes in both shorthair and longhair.
