American Curl

Again, another genetic mutation that resulted in a new breed: a cat whose ears curl back away from the face. The mutation occurred in a litter of kittens in California in 1981, and the breed is now recognized by most American cat associations.

Curl cats are an acquired taste, but one that is easy to acquire, since the distinctive ears do give them an appealing look. They are quiet and sweet natured, and their very long and full-plumed tails are attractive.
