These Curly Cats Who All Descended From One Shelter Kitty Are Taking Internet By Storm
Cats with super fluffy coats are adorable. But, cats with curly coats are basically “heart melts into an instant puddle immediately” cute.
The pictures of this orange kitten with curly hair went viral
Its origins can be traced to one peculiar rescue cat named Miss DePesto
The curly kitty, who was born in a Montana shelter in 1987, had 4 siblings with straight hair
She was adopted by a breeder who realized her curly fur was a dominant genetic feature
The woman bred it with a black Persian and they produced a litter of six babies, all of them with curly hair
This is how Selkirk Rex was born – the breed named after a woman’s stepfather
She added ‘Rex’ to indicate that the adorable coat was curly, a feature that so many cat lovers fell in love with
Positive reactions from the Internet:
Yay or nay on the curly haired cats? Share with friends!
