I know Alix is not the only "curl" on the c'mon, come introduce yourself! I have been in love with this breed since the middle 1980's, and had one in my life since then. Wonderful breed of kitty..bright, inquisitive, many are talkative - responsively more than chattering - many play fetch. Hope to hear more Curl stories here soon.

    American curls here. My straight ear just had four kittens. Their Aunt and 5 cousins have curled ears. I only have one of the five kittens and she has straight ears.

    Hey there Too Many Cats...your kitten is cute, straight or curly-earred! You can't get a curly earred kitten unless one of the parents has curled ears, since the gene for curled ears is a dominant one. Unlike fun recessives like colorpoint coloring, curly ears can't just pop up unexpectedly in a litter if both mom and dad have straight ears.

    Curls are wonderful!!! We aren`t actually American Curls, but Impians. We`re Polydactyl Curls. We will happily visit with you, if you let us, our only major difference are our extra toes... Cheers! Toe Lula and Geppet Toe =^..^=

    Hello, what is an Impian?

    Impians are one of a growing number of hybrid breeds that are using the dominant gene for curly ears of the American Curl to create new breeds. I'm afraid that Alix and I are not fans of this...we think the American Curl - which is not man-made and which is still a very rare breed - needs no improvement, and that there are so many great kitties out there, mixed and of a recognized breed. However, we love curly ears so let's leave it at that, having said the above, our position is clear.
