Like many breeds the LaPerm came from a gene mutation. This mutation is called a Rex gene. These felines come in both long and short hair. The longhair has a curly tail and the short hair has a bottle-brush tail. Their heads are wedge-shaped and they have tufts of hair in their ears.
These cats are good with children and are also a good cat for first time cat owners. Since their gene pool is diversified they are less susceptible to disease. They only need to be brushed once or twice a week. All in all, a healthy purebred.
