More details about the American Curl

American Curl: Origins and history

As their name suggests, the American Curl originated in the United States. At the beginning of the eighties a spontaneous mutation caused ear curvature in a non-pedigree domestic cat in California. Incidentally, this wandering cat was collected by a couple. When she had her first litter, her owners realised that at least two of her kittens had ears similar to those of their mother. Presented in an exhibition in Palm Springs, they were so successful that in 1985, the breed was officially registered. Today, this breed is appreciated around the globe for its completely extraordinary appearance!

American Curl: Purchase price

On average, an American Curl kitten costs between £600 and £900. This price may vary depending on their breeder, lineage, age at purchase and even their sex. 
It costs on average £25 / month to keep an American Curl in good health.
