When Curls are born, their ears are set straight, but within two to seven days, their ears begin to curl back. They stay that way for the next six weeks until the cats ears begin to gradually curl or uncurl in varying degrees and set permanently when they're 4 months old. HOW ADORABLE.

This ancient breed originated on the Isle of Man, and is known for its playfulness and loyalty to its family.

They kinda look like they have little man buns.
