About LaPerm cats
The LaPerm cat is a relatively new breed. And we welcome them to the club with open arms. Luckily for us, LaPerms appreciate a good cuddle! The first known LaPerm kitten was born little over 40 years ago in 1982 in the United States.
This sweet cat was named Curly due to her unique coat of curly hair. Her descendants share a similar coat and it is this soft, wavy hair that LaPerms are famous for. They are also known for their friendly personalities and loud purring. A great addition to the home, LaPerms are charming inside and out.
Chatty, devoted and playful, these cats fit easily into any home. They love to be kept in pairs so they always have someone to play with. Double the trouble but more to love.
Colour: LaPerm cats can come in every colour and coat pattern because they are a result of natural genetic mutation.
Coat: Short or long haired
Size: Small to medium sized cat, 30 - 45cm (excluding tail)
Weight: 2.7 - 4.5 kg
Lifespan: Variable but anywhere between 10 - 15 years
Temperament: Playful, easygoing and get along well with dogs and children.
Benefits of fresh cat food for LaPerm Cats
All cats can benefit from eating fresh food daily. Your LaPerm is no exception. Some of the changes you might see after swapping to fresh cat food include:
● More energy
● Better digestion
● A shiny, healthy coat
Like all cats, LaPerms are obligate carnivores. This means that they are genetically suited to getting the nutrition they need from meat. Their sharp teeth are for tearing meat; not grinding plants. Their digestive tract is shorter, because it’s built for meat. Their saliva and their liver don’t break down plants like herbivores do. Yet the industry standard often overlooks this. Instead they use little and poor quality meat in their cat food and bulk it out with grains.
At KatKin, we are demanding better. Our fresh cat food is formulated by vets and made with 100% premium ingredients. Each of our recipes is nutritionally complete and tailored to help your cat live their best nine lives. Switch fearlessly and try fresh cat food with your LaPerm today.

LaPerm cat FAQs
Your LaPerm cat should be fed one pouch of KatKin fresh cat food per day. Each pouch is packed with the exact amount of nutrients and calories your LaPerm requires for the day. How do we do it? By loving cats hard and specially tailoring our food pouches to every cat we meet.
LaPerm kittens should be fed 3 - 4 times throughout the day. To make sure they are getting the nutrition they need to grow, you should split one pouch of KatKin LaPerm kitten’s food into 3 to 4 meals. This is because we perfectly portion each pouch as a daily serving. Making feeding easier.
Whilst no cat is truly hypoallergenic, LaPerm cats are widely regarded as less likely to prompt a severe reaction. This is because they tend not to shed very much. When cats shed, the dander that clings to the hair is what usually causes allergies to flare up.
In the UK, a healthy purebred LaPerm cat might cost anywhere between £350 and £700. In the US, LaPerms are even more rare and a LaPerm kitten might cost you up to $1,500.
