Curl Essence Colette de la Curl, or just "Colette"
Curl Essence Silver Belle, or "Bell-e-Bell"
Silver Belle is a really pretty silver girl with great ears. But even more than that, she always passes those tall great ears on to her babies. We've wanted to breed her one more time before re retire her. Silver Belle is Savannah's mom. We thought that would be her last litter, but she's surprised us again. Because she's never mated with Glory, this litter is going to be a total surprise for colors. Silver Belle's lines go back to our original foundation cats from Procurlharem.
Curl Essence Michele la Curl... "Shelly"
CG Curl Essence Brittany American Curl
Brittany is a silver patched tabby and white girl. "Silver patch tabby and white" is the technical color description used in both CFA and TICA to describe a calico. Brittany is also one of our smaller girls.
Brittany has everything both CFA and TICA judges look for in an American Curl, but when she broke her back leg leaping from a tall bookshelf, her back leg didn't heal completely straight. All show cats are evaluated on how perfectly straight their back legs are. The leg healed just fine. It's not a problem and not anything that anyone except a judge evaluating the cat on a table under a bright light would even notice... but some judges did notice it. Several judges overlooked the slight bend because her other features are so outstanding. t got her a Champion title in her first show, but decided that trying to show her for any larger titles would be unprofessional on our part. We've built a reputation in both CFA and TICA of producing and showing only top show cats. We weren't going to jeopardize that reputation just to get bigger titles for Brittany. So, Brittany gets to stay home, hang with her people and be a mom.
Besides the look and the ears, one of the characteristics our American Curl cats are known for is their personalities. When you read our testimonials, you'll notice a consistent pattern in what our family of Curl owners have to say about our cats, and that's their friendly, fun personalities. Different breeds are described not just by their looks, but their personalities. Over the past 20+ years of breeding the American Curl cat, we have noticed specific personality characteristics that follow our different bloodlines. Brittany's babies are all super friendly and active. They may not think they can leap from tall buildings like their mom, but they are super, SUPER loving and playful.
