First discovered in the late 1980s, the breed of cat called the Selkirk Rex is a uniquely interesting type of cat, as MNN.com reports. The breed first appeared in Montana from a feral cat that was pregnant with five kittens. When the kittens came out, one of them had a different type of hair than their mother. A breeder adopted this amazing kitten and the rest is history.

Although they are fairly new on the scene, people are beginning to fall in love with their adorable appearances. How can you tell if a cat is a Selkirk Rex? Their special curly, thick and amazing coat of hair! When you see their coat in pictures, you’ll admit that it’s impressive.

Why the unique title for this special breed? The breeder that adopted the curly-haired kitten decided to name the new type of cat after her stepfather, according to Mordecai Siegal's cat guidebook I Just Got a Kitten. What Do I Do?This means that not only are cats of this breed unique but so is the name since it is one of the only types of cats to be named after a human!

After taking some time to breed these cats further, the International Cat Association finally recognized the Selkirk Rex as its own unique and special breed.
