Welcome to the Selkirk Rex Cat Club Website.
club was formed in early 2006 with the aims to increase awareness of the
Selkirk Rex Cat & to promote, develop & safeguard the interests of the
Selkirk Rex Breed.
The Selkirk Rex is neither a curly British nor a curly Persian
but a breed in its own right
The use of Persian and British is allowed as outcrosses but the use of too
much of British cats in breeding or too much of Persian cats in breeding
will result in curly British or curly Persian not Selkirk Rex.
The ideal breeding is Selkirk Rex Curly to Selkirk Rex Variant (straighthair)
and type takes precedence over coat
Here are useful documents that breeders may find helpful
This seminar gives pictorial examples of what is correct and what is not in
the Selkirk breed
Currently membership is increasing by
a steady pace with Founder Members and a healthy flow of new members.
