Overview

The LaPerm is a unique and unusual breed of cat known for its curly, soft coat and friendly, outgoing personality. 

Temperament

LaPerms are known for their friendly, outgoing personalities and love to be around people. They are highly social and affectionate cats that enjoy interacting with their owners and being part of the family. They are playful and active and love to play with toys and games that require them to use their hunting and pouncing skills.

Despite their high energy levels, LaPerms are also very adaptable and can be quite calm and laid-back when they want to be. They enjoy curling up in laps and cuddling with their owners, and are often described as "lap cats". LaPerms are also highly intelligent and can be trained to do a variety of tricks and behaviors, such as retrieving toys or responding to commands.

Lifespan

The LaPerm has an average lifespan of 10-15 years, although with proper care and nutrition, some cats have been known to live into their late teens or early twenties.

Shedding

Despite their curly coats, LaPerms are moderate to heavy shedders and require regular brushing and grooming to help remove loose hair and prevent matting. They may benefit from occasional baths to help keep their coats clean and healthy.

Kittens

LaPerm kittens are known for their playful and curious personalities. They are highly social and require plenty of attention and socialization to become well-adjusted adult cats. LaPerm kittens are usually ready to go to their new homes at around 12-16 weeks of age. They are typically litter-trained, vaccinated, and microchipped.

When adopting a LaPerm kitten, it is important to find a reputable breeder and ensure that the kitten's parents have been health screened for any genetic health issues. It is also important to provide plenty of socialization and training to help the kitten develop into a well-behaved and well-adjusted adult cat.
