Rather a stocky cat, with a round head and filled-out cheeks, the Selkirk Rex is one of only four breeds that have a curly coat. It is loving and affectionate, and so content that it is well known for purring. These are charismatic, playful cats with a very easy-going temperament.
If you are the owner of a Selkirk Rex or are considering getting one, you can take a look at our cat insurance policies to ensure your pet will receive the care they need in the case of an illness or accident.
|Colour:||All colours (including tan, white and grey) in all kinds of combinations, patterns and markings.|
|Coat:||Usually curly - they can be long-haired and curly, and short-haired and curly - but there are also occasionally straight-haired Selkirk Rex cats. Despite appearances, the coat doesn't require too much grooming, which can cause the curl to drop out.|
|Life span:||A life expectancy of around 14 years is usual.|
Selkirk Rexs sometimes suffer with epilepsy and are prone to hereditary and congenital conditions. Petplan dog insurance offers peace of mind that they will always be protected.
