About Us
El Zorro the Great, the Cat of the Day
Name: El Zorro the Great
Age: One year old
Gender: Male
Breed: Selkirk Rex Long Hair
Home: Dallas/Ft. Worth, Texas, USA
   I was Mom's first Selkirk Rex Baby. I was so big and curly that Mom decide to keep me. I was so unusual because my hair was supposed to go straight between four months and eight months like other Selkirk Rex kittens, but it didn't. Now, I'm in such curls that it looks like cords. I love to do to shows and strut my stuff. When the judges look at me I stick my head up and stand there like I own the place. This last year I am two in the Breed in TICA and 18th best long hair Cat for South Central Region.

    El Zorro is very sweet. He loves for me to hold him. I carry him over my shoulder around the house. He loves to play with catnip toys tossing them into the air and catching them. He really likes the girls and throws his head up high when one walks by. That's how he got his name. El Zorro the Don Juan of the felines.

    About Selkirk Rex cats: Made in the USA. Sheridan, Montana. With coats curly from birth, these rare cats are known as "Cats in Sheep Clothing." Their coats are soft, thick and plush with non-matting loose curls.

    Selkirk Rex cats are medium size with surprising weight. They are fun-loving people-oriented lap kittens making them a delight to own. They love to play, but are not curtain climbers. I am forever having one of my cats help me on the computer (and I know one of these days, they may just catch that cursor!!!).
