Native to the United States and more specifically upstate New York, the Wirehair first appeared in 1966 in Vernon, NY after being born to a pair of barn cats. The Wirehair is ranked among the top rare of breeds of the 41 Cat Fanciers’ Association and are similar to American Shorthairs. This feline has a wiry coat similar to dog breeds such as terriers and need little grooming. It should be noted that the lighter cats may require sunblock. They have round heads and a pronounced muzzle. Wirehairs are playful and active one minute and quietly laying in their owner’s lap the next. Most usually prefer to stay indoors.
