The American Curl is a breed of cat that wraps itself around your heart. If they could curl up inside you and stay there they would. Such a loving breed of cat. They come from domestic street cats and the breed was discovered in 1981 in California. 

They have come a long way and have been modified from large to semi foreign type. They come in all colors. These cats get their name because of their ears. They curl back toward the base of the skull. The curl can vary from first degree to 3rd degree which is the preferred. American Curl cats are a very elegant breed and are very curious and their ears make them look even more impish.
