LaPerm Cat

The LaPerm Cat is a good choice for families with older children who will treat him respectfully. However, toddlers should be supervised to not pull his curls. The LaPerm is also perfectly capable of getting along with cat-friendly dogs.


LaPerm Cat

The LaPerm Cat loves human companionship and adapts well to indoor or apartment living as long as he gets the requisite amount of playing and pampering. Like his barn cat ancestors, he enjoys a good game of chase, and love pouncing on the catnip mouse.
