The LaPerm is most known for their fur, which is curled into tight ringlets, covering their entire body, minus the face. Even their whiskers are curled. They have a medium to large size body, with long legs and a sturdy musculature. Aside from their uniquely curly fur, they are a fairly run-of-the-mill cat, with a moderately angular head, average sized ears, and eyes that come in a number of different colors. One major upside about the LaPerm is the fact that their curly coat results in a little shedding.
