Poodles are one of the most popular dog breeds in the world. It is a breed of dog easy to recognize, known for its intelligence and its curly fur. However, today we do not mention these dogs, we would like to introduce the poodle (Selkirk Rex) – one of the most adorable animals to have ever walked on the face of the earth. They are often crossed with Persians or Britons, making them casual and cheerful animals. Sometimes they are called “a cat in sheep’s clothing” because of their curly fur.
Poodle cats tend to surprise cat lovers. The unique coats that are found only in this unusual breed make them as cute as possible. For this reason, we could not go through the poodles and their looks without having to write about it. We have collected 20 pictures of poodle cats that look absolutely incredible to share with you.

History of the Selkirk Rex breed
The first Selkirk Rex was born at an animal shelter in 1987 in Sheridan, Montana. A cat named Curly-Q, a bluish-cream with white color, and with curly wool, reminiscent of a sheep, fell into the hands of a Persian breeder, Jeri Newman, from Livingston, the same state of Montana.
Newman, passionate about cats and genetics, made it known that he was interested in any unusual kittens born in the state. And she simply could not help but become interested in a young kitty, which looks and feels like a children’s plush toy.
Soon, Newman found out that she not only looks unusual, but also has a wonderful character. She renamed her Miss DePesto, after one of the characters in the Moonlight Detective Agency series.
When the cat was old enough, Newman brought her to a Persian cat, one of her champions, black.
The result was a litter of six kittens, three of which inherited their mother’s curly coat. Since Newman was no stranger to genetics, she knew what this meant: the gene that transmits curliness was dominant, and only one parent was needed for it to appear in the litter.
