Warning

There is a fast-spreading pedigree kitten scam doing the rounds. Scamsters are using the name and cattery name of registered breeders, creating credible-looking email addresses and are marketing kittens at exorbitant prices and even more exorbitant shipping fees. Of course the kittens do not exist and once payment has been received, the ‘breeder’ vanishes and the number no longer works. Some complainants have mentioned "West Africa/French accents" when they did, in early phases of the buying process, spoken to these fraudulent "breeders".
We urge you to please do due diligence and confirm email addresses and telephone numbers of breeders with the 3 South African cat registration bodies before responding to any adverts. If what is seen in an advert or email differs from what the registration bodies’ supply, BE AWARE! All reputable breeders would have to be registered with at least one of these bodies.

American Curl Breeders

The American Curl is a breed of cat characterized by its unusual ears, which curl back from the face toward the center of the back of the skull.

The breed originated in Lakewood, California as the result of a spontaneous mutation.
In 1983, an American Curl was exhibited at a cat show for the first time, and in 1987, the longhaired American Curl was given championship status by The International Cat Association (TICA). In 1993, the American Curl became the first breed admitted to the Cat Fanciers' Association (CFA) Championship Class with both longhair and shorthair divisions.
The American Curl is a medium sized cat (5-10 lbs), and does not reach maturity until 2 years of age. They are strong and healthy, remarkably free of the genetic defects.
American Curl kittens are born with straight ears, which begin to curl within ten days. After four months, their ears will not curl any longer, and should be hard and stiff to the touch. 
Both longhaired and shorthaired American Curls have soft, silky coats which lie flat against their bodies. They require little grooming, but enjoy spending time with their owners.
The American Curl, while still an uncommon breed, is found across the world in the United States, Spain, France, Japan, Russia, and many other countries.
