Short description

Characteristic for the La Perm Shorthair is her curly coat with almost no undercoat. Nevertheless, her coat needs a lot of grooming. She is very social and does not like to be left alone. She has a calm character and is very human-oriented. She follows her humans almost like a dog and she likes cuddls for hours. Once in a lifetime, mostly when she is young, she gets bald. The regrowing coat is often grimped.

This information is indicative and adheres to the breed standard. Each animal is an individual and has a personal character, as well as its own needs. Thus, a breed is not a guarantee of certain behaviors, etc.
