American Curl (Chanan)The American Curl cat is most commonly recognized by its unusual ears, which curl backward. This is the result of a natural mutation. All true American Curls trade their ancestry back to Shulamith, the mother of the American Curl breed rescued in 1981.

American Curl kittens can be either shorthaired or longhaired, and appear in a wide range of colors and patterns. The American Curl personality is energetic, affectionate, and even-tempered.

The shorthaired variety is called the "Shorthair Curl" by some associations.

Interesting breed fact: The American Curl's rise from stray to pedigreed cat was unusually fast. It was first accepted for championship status by TICA in 1987 and by CFA in 1993.
