I LOVE THIS CAT! <3 The LaPerm has either tight ringlets for shorthairs or long corkscrew curls for longhairs. The kittens are born either without hair, with short wavy hair, or with short straight hair. At two weeks of age, they start to go bald if they aren't already. Afterwards they sprout their coat type. They come in every color and pattern and have lovely curly whiskers, eyebrows, curly ears, large, expressive eyes and a full tail.
