Get to know the Selkirk Rex
All you need to know about the breed
You could say that the medium sized Selkirk Rex is the purrfect mix of their feline ancestors. From the British Shorthair, they have inherited a calm temperament, from the Persian comes patience and affection.
The Selkirk Rex can form strong bonds with children of all ages, so long as they behave respectfully, and cat-friendly pets. While far from being a couch potato breed, the Selkirk Rex does appreciate a quiet life, preferably in a cosy environment with lots of loving strokes from their owner(s). Friends who drop in without warning will not be a problem for the sociable Selkirk Rex: it’s one more human to give them a scratch behind the ears.
Let’s talk about that curly coat! The Selkirk Rex can have short-haired or long-haired coats. The former means a short coat, with plush curls covering the neck, throat and stomach. The latter means a mid-length to long coat that is curlier than the short-haired variety, and lends an overall appearance of slight disarray. People often feel an urge to stroke Selkirk Rex cats because of their generous coat, which they will accept with pleasure.
