Like the American Curl breed, the Wirehair started as a spontaneous mutation in the domestic cat population. The Wirehairs coat is what sets this breed apart from others, It is a crimped or bent coat which makes it grow almost in a ringlet form. Their coat is also very coarse at touch. Wirehairs are very much a people cat, they crave your love and attention. They are very entergetic without being crazy acting like most cats. They are also affectionate, but do not seem to be clingy. They will however follow you room to room because they are interested in all aspects of their surroundings. If you want a good well rounded cat, this is the cat for you.
