It's not common to come across an American Bobtail on every street corner. The first of these cats was a stray from Arizona with a blunt, bobbed tail that was brought to Iowa in the late 1960s.
The length of an American Bobtail's tail is typically between one and four inches. These lovable felines are perfect as therapy cats or as pets for their human owners.
Purebred American Curl cats may cost as much as $1,300. This is more than the average cost of a cat. One reason for this is the way their ears naturally curve back from their heads.
In 1981, the first American Curl was born in California, and since then, the breed has been utilized to produce other cats with the same distinctive ear shape. We now keep them as pets because they are cute, smart, and expressive.
