I raise and show quality registerd: Selkirk Rex cats. I have a registered cattery with TICA and CFA. I have been breeding since 2017. All my breeding males and females are DNA tested for genetic diseases. They are also tested yearly for FeLV/FIV. This helps to insure healthy kittens. I do my best to raise quality kittens. They are raised in a healthy loving environment. All cats and kittens go to their new homes after 12 weeks of age with 2 sets of vaccinations, spay/neuter done, microchip and 30 days pet insurance. Sales contract is required to insure there is no misunderstanding as to the care that is required of the new parents.
I built my cattery in 2017 it is 20 ft. by 30 ft. Climate controlled.
The Selkirk Rex cat is gentle and sociable. He is affectionate and likes to cuddle, making him a good choice for families with older children, other pets or frequent guests. Assuming he was well socialized as a kitten, he can be a good traveler and can make an excellent therapy cat. The Selkirk is by no means a couch potato, but he is more restful to live with than some breeds.
I don't believe any cat is completely hypoallergenic. Some owners have reported to me that they have little to no reactions to their Selkirk.
No, they shed just like any other cat breed. Some shed more some less.
Some Selkirk kittens at 9-10 months old will shed almost all their hair. They are shedding their kitten coat and will grow in their adult hair coat.
Selkirk's whiskers are curly and brittle and break off easily. This is completely normal for the breed.
