LaPerm kittens and cats for pet and show.
I met my first LaPerm cat in 2008 at a CFA show, not long after they were accepted for championship. The curly coat reminded me of my little mixed poodle dog. It took me four years to be able to find one of these very unique little creatures.
We have just started out with showing LaPerms. We have recently shown the first 2 in championship class in TICA. Both Penny and Nathan are off to a good start. The breed is very unique to my region. Most of the people we know have not seen one before.
We also have our first kittens. Our little girl Poodle will be our next up and coming show cat. She is a black and white tuxedo with long, curly hair.
LaPerm kittens can be born curly, smooth, or even bald.They can have long or short hair. At a few weeks of age, some molt, losing all or most of their hair. Our Nathan came to us mostly bald and at 8 months of age, he has a wonderfully curly coat, like a little sheep.
We are enjoying learning about and getting to know the breed. They are very sweet and they certainly attract a lot of attention when you take them out and about because of the curly coat.
Since the LaPerm has a limited gene pool, we would love to give preference to show homes.
Thanks to Sunfall, Quincunx, and Dennigan catteries for helping us to get our start.
For more information about the breed, please go to TICA.org or CFA.org and go to the breed standard.
